Airvana and Alcatel-Lucent combine femtocells with IMS

Airvana and Alcatel-Lucent announced plans to jointly develop a CDMA/EV-DO femtocell platform that incorporates an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). The two said that: “this initiative will ensure that CDMA/EV-DO network operators are able to make use of femtocells to improve the in-building wireless experience for their subscribers, while ensuring that these new network elements work seamlessly with the broader mobile network.”

Under the agreement, Airvana will rework its femtocell platform to include interfaces with Alcatel-Lucent’s IMS core.
