Mobilkom Austria, which operates under the A1 brand, announced a trial of Huawei's femtocell equipment in November 2008. The trial will last until mid 2009 after which a commercial launch is planned.
Only 35 femtocells are to be tested, but these include two different models:
- A domestic model with the normal capacity of 4 simultaneous calls
- An enterprise/business model with an increased capacity of up to 16 simultaneous calls.
