Femtocell and picocell solutions developer ip.access has developed new 3G Home Routing technology that connects 3G phones into a home network via its Oyster 3G femtocell.

3G Home Routing uses the Oyster 3G to provide a real-time "bridge" between the user's home network and any 3G handset.

"Femtocells can open up these applications to any 3G handset quickly and easily, putting your mobile phone at the heart of your connected home," said ip.access VP of marketing, Andy Tiller. "Our femtocell-powered 3G Routing technology means there's no need to have a special Wi-Fi-enabled phone, and you don't have to spend time configuring any settings either."

According to ip.access, because all the data traffic is routed locally over the femtocell, the end-user benefits from full HSDPA data rates for all their connected home applications. 3G Home Routing removes the delay associated with carrying data traffic from the phone over the mobile operator's core network and back, which also saves costs for the operator, ip.acess asserts.

"Femtocells can offer consumers more than just better 3G coverage at home," said Tiller. "We believe that connected home applications and other 'femtozone' services will become compelling reasons for consumers to adopt femtocells."
