The Cambridge, U.K. mobile technology developer ip.access says it has closed a new $15 million round of funding from its current investors in the U.S. and Europe. The company makes small and low-power cellular base stations that boost signal coverage for mobile Internet devices.

The collection of ip.access’s current investors all participated, including Amadeus Capital Partners, Cisco, Intel Capital, Qualcomm,  Rothschild & Cie Gestion, Scottish Equity Partners, and TE Connectivity. CEO Simon Brown of ip.access (pictured left) says the capital raised will be used to continue the development and deployment of the company’s small cell products.

The company develops 3G protocol boosters called femotcells that improve signal coverage inside homes, stores, and offices. ip.access also makes picocells that also boost signals inside stores and offices, which operate under 3G and GSM mobile protocols.

ip.access’s customers are mobile service providers, such as At&T. “Everything we are doing and developing at the moment,” says Brown “is geared towards making it easier and more cost effective for operators to add coverage and capacity to their networks where it is needed most — in homes, in offices and in busy public locations.”
