The Polaris Networks Home eNodeB Gateway (HeNB-GW), also referred to as Femtocell Gateway
(F-GW), is based on an innovative architecture that provides the control capabilities
necessary to manage large clusters of femtocells. The primary function of this gateway is
to enable simple, seamless, and highly secure access to subscribers as they roam between trusted
mobile networks and untrusted public networks. The HeNB-GW provides an aggregation or
concentration functionality for a group of Femtocell Access Points (FAPs). This preserves
the hierarchical architecture of the current generation of the Core Network as it does not
expose a large number of eNodeB base stations to the Core Network elements.
The Polaris Home eNodeB Gateway is a standards based implementation based on the 3GPP TR
23.830 architecture. It supports 3GPP Release 9, 10, and Release 11 specifications.
