We are delighted to welcome him to our board.”

The system supports multiple interfaces to the operator’s core network, and is remotely managed and updated using standard TR-069 management systems such as Motive’s Home Device Manager. Ubiquisys’ sole focus is femtocells, and in 2007 it created the Femtoforum to promote standards and partnerships in this fast-emerging industry.
