Cisco invests in femtocell firm ip.access

Cisco Systems, which reportedly had been eyeing investments in the home base station market for some time, has invested in femtocell vendor ip.access. Though Cisco acquired similar technology for the corporate market eight years ago, its interest in home femtocells may be speculative and educational at this point. The company didn't say how much money it is investing in ip.access.

The investment comes at a time when femtocell interest is high, but cost and scalability questions remain for some network operators.
