But What is Femtocell?
In telecommunications, a femtocell is a small cellular base station, typically designed for use in a home or small business. It connects to the service provider’s network via broadband (such as DSL or cable); current designs typically support 2 to 4 active mobile phones in a residential setting, and 8 to 16 active mobile phones in enterprise settings. A femtocell allows service providers to extend service coverage indoors, especially where access would otherwise be limited or unavailable. Although much attention is focused on WCDMA, the concept is applicable to all standards, including GSM, CDMA2000, TD-SCDMA, WiMAX and LTE solutions.
QualcommSanjeev Nanda has previously worked on systems engineering and standardization of fixed mobile convergence, 3G WiFi interworking, and MIMO WLAN (802.11n). In addition, Sanjeev Nanda has contributed to programs in cellular and wireless MAC design, cognitive radio and wireless networking. In 2008, Sanjeev Nanda was recognized by Corporate R&D for distinguished contributions to mentoring and incubating new programs, as well as management of the internship program and recruitment.
During 2001-2002 Sanjeev Nanda was director of systems engineering at Narad Networks, designing switched Ethernet backhaul over hybrid fiber coax networks. Prior to Narad, Sanjiv spent ten years with the Performance Analysis Department at Bell Laboratories, working on many aspects of cellular system design, including system architecture, protocol design, system performance and link performance. During 1989-90, as post-doc with David Goodman at Rutgers University, Sanjeev Nanda supported the founding and early success of WINLAB.
