already one of the world’s leading femtocell manufacturers. With core
competency in RF/Microwave design, software engineering and manufacturing
excellence, Gemtek also has strong strategic alliances with the worldwide

Ubiquisys intelligent cell software is commercially proven to provide a
range of unique benefits for end users and operators. In residential
femtocells, its continuous self-adapting behaviour eliminates interference
problems and ensures a high quality user experience. In enterprise
deployments it enables femtocells to autonomously create a self-organising
network, taking the complexity and cost out of providing seamless indoor
coverage for any size and shape of business space. For public space capacity
hotspots, Ubiquisys enables low-cost installation and operation, plus the
ability to deploy at very high density to provide maximum data capacity.
“The rapid growth of consumer femtocells and public small cell hotspots
demands new levels of device innovation,” said Randy Hsu, CTO Gemtek. “The
Ubiquisys Femto-Engine model enables us to leverage our wireless broadband
expertise to develop innovative new intelligent cells for our customers.”
“Intelligent cells transform the mobile user experience and change the
economics of networks at the same time,” said Will Franks, CTO and founder,
Ubiquisys. “We’re delighted to be working with Gemtek, a recognised leader
in wireless broadband and a volume provider of femtocells.”
