NEC Corp. announced that it would integrate Genband's G9 Converged Media Gateway into its femtocell solution architecture for mobile operators.

NEC provides a complete femtocell solution, which includes the access point for direct subscriber use, together with the supporting femtocell gateway to aggregate and connect potentially millions of femtocell access points to the operator's core network. Genband is providing its G9 Converged Media Gateway, which uniquely offers both the media gateway (MGW) and signaling gateway (SGW) functionality. Currently on trial with several European operators as part of NEC's femtocell solution, the G9 platform helps lower overall operating and capital costs through its packet access gateway capabilities, while its transcoder-free operation enables femtocells to provide higher quality voice.

Genband and NEC are both members of the Femto Forum, the independent industry association that supports femtocell deployment worldwide and encourages the growth of a partner ecosystem committed to innovation in standards-based network infrastructure and achieving high levels of collaboration and product interoperability.
