Small cell systems vendor and manufacturer ip.access today confirmed it had become the first 3G small cell provider to ship one million residential units.
Announcing the achievement, CEO Simon Brown said: "The small cell wave is breaking and breaking fast - with our second half-million coming in little more than a year. Today, one million units delivered confirms our ability to provide a product that meets mass market demand - and all our indicators point to even greater acceleration in market adoption."
Brown also revealed that 2012 had been a breakthrough year in terms of contract wins and partner agreements for the company.
"We participated in all but a handful of the major small cell contracts in the marketplace, and chalked up a success rate of more than 90 per cent," he said. "In fact, in 2012 we closed around 40 small cell contracts and we see this as compelling market evidence confirming that ip.access' strategy, products, and ability to deliver are propelling us to win unrivalled market share and operator support."
He confirmed that the latest round of contract wins included as many as five framework agreements with international operator groups, the largest of which with am (unnamed) tier one operator covers 15 country networks.
