I represent SysDsoft who has the fully tested and widely accepted LTE IP stack in addition to IMS and femto eNB. My email address is sam@ip-semantics.com. Let me know if you more technical information.

Price and performance are key in using LTT+IMS with Femto. IF you can run on an ARM nine VS a Cavium network processor then you have the price advantage and if you can provide the best performance in category 3,4 and 5 then you are the leader in market. That is when Voice over LTE and Video over LTE for home makes sense. Only one company I know of who can do all of that. Let me know if you are interested and I will send you information on them since this is not an advertising forum.

Yes, it is very possible. The MetroPCS shows what a nimble strategy could do to extend wireless connection. If they have a major generational leap in engineering, the cost will come down. The opportunities are not just in the US and developed nations, but in developing world where small cells will help penetration.

So femto are really catching up! One thing for reflection... I've seen that in some VoIP calls software there's a notice which warns the user to not rely on the software and connection for emergency calls. But so far, I think that hasn't applied to cellular wireless calls. But... now with DSL being used to provide 3G connection, I suppose the reliability of the call will drop to same as with the VoIP applications wouldn't it? VoIP will also have to catch-up to be secure over the TCP/IP protocol. So only AT&T providing at the moment? How about Verizon? Only GSM or CDMA femtocells also exist? does somebody know? Pricing?

I think the largest impact of femtocells would be in wireless sensor networks...they will be millions, eventually billions of those monitoring every aspects of life and environment: temperature, humidity, pressure, radiation, solar activity, vibration etc...Kris

It could. I do see home becoming a small cell site a very interesting development. But the issue is at what cost.

Interconnectivity is getting more interesting. Will every home become a small cell site to extend the coverage of cellular operators?

for both options, stand along femto box, and integrated box, power consumption is an important issue. For that, Percello has big advantage over Picochip.
