Info on Alcatel Femtocells

Hi Alex,

Femtocells are provisioned with operator data - certificates/keys to be able to talk to the gateway.
Some femtocells use EAP-SIM with an embedded SIM card, others just rely on the configuration. If your femto supports a SIM card you can use a SIM card with a known Ki to connect it to your gateway (strongswan I assume).
If however there is no SIM card support in the femtocell then you need to somehow re-provision the device - probably using a proprietary software and method.
Sorry, this is probably bad news for you.

Kind regards,
Domi
