The FemtoZone will serve as the industry's central information point on femtocell markets and technologies at Mobile World Congress, featuring public presentations from global operators – including Orange, Softbank, T-Mobile & Vodafone - and a broad ecosystem of solution vendors.
February 5, 2009 - Acton, MA - Tatara Systems today announced it will be participating in the FemtoZone at GSMA Mobile World Congress 2009 at Fira de Barcelona from February 16th through 19th. The FemtoZone, which is hosted by the GSMA and the Femto Forum, will serve as a one-stop shop for all visitors interested in learning about the latest developments in the femtocell industry as it undergoes a pivotal year for deployment.
The FemtoZone (Stand 2.1B34) will feature a daily schedule of public presentations from operators and vendors on the major opportunities and challenges facing the femtocell market. Tatara Systems will be displaying information on its Tatara Convergence Server in the femtocell ecosystem product showcase in the FemtoZone stand as well as participating in a live femtocell solution demonstration with its partners Acme Packet and AirWalk Communications in the Acme Packet hospitality suite (Suite Z3.12).
“Tatara Systems’ best-of-breed femtocell convergence solution enables operators to maximize the return of their legacy networks while also delivering new, cost-effective, all-IP services. We are extremely pleased to be demonstrating innovation, market-ready femtocell solutions with our partners at Mobile World Congress 2009,” stated Marc Cremer, Tatara’s executive vice president of operations.
“Over the past year the femtocell industry has overcome major technical and business challenges paving the way in 2009 for operators to introduce commercial services. As such the Mobile World Congress is going to be a key event for operators to cement their consumer propositions to ensure their launches are as successful as possible,” said Professor Simon Saunders, chairman of The Femto Forum.
“This year’s Mobile World Congress marks the beginning of the real acid test for femtocells. The FemtoZone will attempt to address the key issues, such as what is going to be the key driver for successful deployments and are there going to be further technical hurdles to be addressed before we see large scale deployment,” said Robindhra Mangtani, director of the GSMA project on femtocells.
