Femtocells are considered an important element of Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC). Traditional FMC requires use of dual mode (WiFi) handsets but ordinary cellphones can be used for FMC. One of the most significant advantages of Femtocell wireless is that by directing home mobile calls on the internet, operators can free up the wireless network. In emerging markets, wireless network congestion rates point to the idea that Femtocells would be a boon in such locations.
