      The Boring Old Street Lamp May Hold the Future to Wireless Cities
      They are not glamorous or even particularly hi-tech, but street lamps may just hold the future to wired cities. A trial in the U.K. by Virgin Media Business in two cities, Bristol and Newcastle Upon Tyne, has successfully shown that small cell technology offers a step change in connectivity. The cell was able to deliver 90Mb/s to—admittedly a very small number of users—but was also able to provide extra coverage inside buildings. As the name suggests, small cells are mobile network cells that in

    2. Small Cell Maker Ubiquisys Lands $19 million Round

      In a sign of the growing importance of small cells, the U.K.-based Ubiquisys has secured a $19 million funding round. Ubiquisys will use the capital to generate further growth and step up delivery of small-cell hotspots that operate in the existing 3G spectrum, but will also allow users to connect to WiFi and to the next generation of mobile devices, LTE. Small cells, sometimes known as pico- or femtocells, are low-power, wireless-access points that allow mobile operators to provide highly targe

    3. Republic of Congo Tests Femtocell and Satellite Network

      Femtocells, low-powered base stations, are usually seen in developed countries as a way to fill in gaps in cellphone coverage. If you can’t get a signal in your house or small office, your mobile network will probably provide you with a femtocell to hook up to your fixed-line broadband service. Giga Om reports that satellite comms company RascomStar-QAF is to run a trial this summer using 50 femtocells from U.K. vendor ip.access. These will be deployed in communities in the Republic of Congo.
