Sprint Launches Femtocell-Based FMC Solution | PwC

Sprint has announced the launch of a fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) solution using a Femtocell system called the Airave. Targeted at users with patchy indoor reception, the service will also provide an FMC solution by providing unlimited incoming and outgoing calls, but only for calls initiated within range of the Airave router. The equipment is a re-branded version of the CDMA Ubicell Femtocell base station from Samsung, which will cost US$49.99 to buy, plus US$15 per month for a single user or US$30 per month for multiple (family) users.
