Google Backs Ubiquisys

Ubiquisys Ltd., a UK-based provider of 3G femtocell access points for the residential market, has raised $25 million in Series B funding. Google was joined by return backers Accel Partners, Atlas Venture and Advent Venture Partners. The femtocell offers mobile coverage in the home for those using 3G cell phones. The device plugs into an existing home broadband gateway, or is built into a gateway product that includes WiFi, DSL, Ethernet, phone ports and USB. Uniquisys previously raised $17 million.
