China Unicom has selected Huawei's femtocell solution for its "3G Inn" service that provides subscribers indoor 3G experience offering Internet download speeds of up to 7.2Mbit/s. Launched initially in Beijing, China Unicom expects to roll out this service nationwide.

Huawei's femtocell solution is a portable wireless device that connects 3G mobile handsets directly to an existing fixed broadband network, which is particularly useful for areas where high speed Internet access would otherwise be limited or unavailable. Huawei's versatile solution allows users to enjoy high bandwidth data transfer from their home or office and supports bandwidth intensive applications such as video streaming, IPTV, video conferencing and mobile broadband.

"Huawei's femtocell solution can help operators to increase competitiveness in the area of fixed-mobile convergence," said Wan Biao, president of wireless product line, Huawei. "China Unicom's subscribers can now enjoy superior mobile broadband service everywhere, especially at home."

Huawei has deployed 40 femtocell networks around the world, more than any other company in the industry. These deployments have been made in partnership with leading telecoms operators including China Unicom, Vodafone, and other top-tier operators in Europe. In December 2008, Huawei deployed the world's first commercial 3G femtocell network in Singapore.
