Home Node B system as an aspect of a small cell system can be further explored into more opportunities. This paper presents a more flexible home NodeB model mostly for developing countries that can accommodate voice transmission platform. It showed that for a deployed system of such, operators of developing countries can manage resources effectively, and easily extend macrocell coverage of their voice transmission with value added quality of service to their subscribers. The workability of the model was demonstrated using algorithms, and the routers connectivity simulation result recorded a success rate in nodes connectivity.
