The Advanced Femtocell Concept, or AFC, is a fully functional residential femtocell design with a number of innovative features. It's very small and neat -- about the size of an iPhone -- and has high quality design characteristics, making it an attractive product which increases the desirability of the femtocell to consumers. The AFC uses modern connectors and ceramic antennas to save space, while at the same time providing excellent radio performance. But that's just the start. The real innovation is in the AFC's flexibility and portability. Unlike other femtocells, the AFC can be installed anywhere in the home using its convenient docking station, which provides wireless connectivity to the home network and the Internet via Wi-Fi. The docking station and its wireless connectivity make it easier to install the femtocell in the optimal location to provide coverage within the home or office. The AFC is a bit like a concept car. You don't expect to see them appear in the showroom as real products, but innovative ideas from the concept design are worked into future products.
