  4. 4. picoChip: The architecture of Choice picoChip defined femtocell concept First demo 3GSM 2005 Customers include ipAccess, Ubiquisys, and Tier One OEMs Silicon & software shipping Complete reference design: compliant & interoperable p Key partnerships: eg Korea Telecom, Continuous Computing (Iu) Supports HSDPA, software upgrade to HSUPA Also for CDMA2000/EVDO, WiMAX, TD- SCDMA and LTE 10/10/2007 Slide 4 of 19 CONFIDENTIAL
  5. 5. Macrocells are very bad at in-building coverage Poor coverage is #1 cause of churn Business case relies on high-speed data where people want to use it Femtocells can enable this 10/10/2007 Slide 5 of 19 CONFIDENTIAL
  6. 6. FMC, VoWiFi The threat for cellular operators Wireless market saturated - operators need new strategies to drive ARPU and gain customers Threats from new entrants (MVNO, Voice-over-WiFi) Strong desire to shift users to 3G (or other data services) But… 3G coverage is lousy indoors (especially for data) Femtocells allow Wireless operators to (profitably) compete with voice- over-WiFi 10/10/2007 Slide 6 of 19 CONFIDENTIAL

Femtocell Architecture Home network (50m-200m) 4 users 5Mbps data throughput HSDPA or WiMAX Cellular DSL Carrier Broadband Broadband Optional WiFi integrated Enables cellular Femtocell “feels Very aggressive 4 users, No need for All the benefits carriers to like” WiFi AP price targets 50-200m expensive dual- of FMC for a compete with (<<$200) mode handsets cellular carrier VoIP, WiFi and UMA (eg Fusion) We forecast 17million residential Vincent Femtocells in Western Europe in 2011 p Poulbere 31-12-2007 31 12 2007 10/10/2007 Slide 7 of 19 CONFIDENTIAL
  8. 8. Home Basestation Benefits to Consumer Benefits to Operator FEAR: Reduces cost ( ee ca s ) educes (free calls!) Counters threat from VoIP & Improves coverage; UMA no deadspots GREED: Simplicity: single Device, Increases both coverage and all numbers in one place p capacity No need for expensive Reduces churn new device Increases ARPU (sell BB too) Works with all existing handsets; no need for expensive subsidies df i b idi on dual-mode Increases 3G adoption y , By 2011 there are forecast to be 180 million femtocell users, with 60 million devices. Femtocells will be an integral part of the operator push into fixed-mobile converged services whilst also providing considerable benefits of in-building wireless coverage, capacity gain and shaping user behaviour. Crucially, this is more than just WCDMA. Stuart Carlaw, Principal Analyst, ABI Research 10/10/2007 Slide 8 of 19 CONFIDENTIAL
