CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION This application is a continuation of, and claims priority to, U.S. patent application Ser. No. 13/451,234 (now U.S. Pat. No. 9,166,732), filed Apr. 19, 2012, and entitled “FACILITATION OF SECURITY EMPLOYING A FEMTO CELL ACCESS POINT,” the entirety of which application is hereby incorporated herein by reference. TECHNICAL FIELD The disclosure relates to wireless communications and, more particularly, to various embodiments that facilitate security employing a femto cell access point. BACKGROUND One purpose of home security systems is to try to determine that an intrusion into a secure area has occurred. However, information regarding the intruder is often limited and, at times, non-existent. In some instances of intrusion, an image of the intruder may be captured via video camera filming the secure area. However, an image of the intruder is of limited utility. Additionally, because there is a inherent delay between the time that intrusion is detected and the arrival of law enforcement, intruders often escape, and thereby stolen property may be permanently lost.

Further, the term “femto” and “femto cell” are used interchangeably, and the terms “macro” and “macro cell” are used interchangeably. With the onslaught of communications and advancement of technology, the use of femto cells (FAPs) in commercial and residential areas is widespread. In the past, FAPs have been utilized for traditional facilitation of communication of mobile devices listed on a white list for the FAP. In this regard, various embodiments disclosed herein facilitate security using FAPs. In one embodiment, a method can comprise receiving, by a system comprising at least one processor, a signal indicative of an intrusion in an area associated with a femto cell access point, and determining, by the system, an identifier associated with a device in a detection range of the femto cell access point, the determining being based, at least, on the receiving the signal indicative of the intrusion. In another embodiment, a system can comprise a memory that stores computer executable instructions, and a processor that is communicatively coupled to the memory and that facilitates execution of the computer executable instructions to at least receive a signal indicative of an intrusion in an area associated with a femto cell access point, and determine an identifier associated with a device in a detection range of the femto cell access point based, at least, on reception of the signal indicative of the intrusion. In another embodiment, a computer-readable storage medium can have computer-executable instructions stored thereon that, in response to execution, cause a computing system comprising at least one processor to perform operations. The operations can comprise receiving a signal indicative of an intrusion in an area associated with a femto cell access point, determining an identifier associated with a device in a detection range of the femto cell access point, the determining being based, at least, on the receiving the signal being indicative of the intrusion, jamming a frequency in the detection range of the femto cell access point, detecting an attachment attempt emitted from the device in response to the jamming the frequency, and identifying a telephone number of the device based, at least, on the detecting the attachment attempt from the device. Various embodiments described herein relate to facilitating security employing one or more FAPs. In some embodiments, an FAP in an area can receive a signal indicative of an intrusion (e.g., burglary) in the area. The FAP can receive the signal from a security system associated with providing security for the area, for example. In response to receiving the signal indicative of the intrusion, the FAP can discover an identification and/or telephone number of a device (e.g., cellular telephone) in the area of the intrusion that may be associated with the intruder. In some embodiments, the FAP can discover the identification and/or telephone number for the device by jamming one or more frequencies in the detection range of the FAP and detecting one or more attachment attempts emitted from the device in response to jamming the frequency on which the device would transmit. The FAP can store the information retrieved, transmit the information to law enforcement, initiate a warning associated with the intrusion and/or initiate tracking of the device. One or more embodiments can advantageously increase the likelihood of shortening intrusion time, eliminating the theft of property and/or apprehension of suspects in intrusions. One or more embodiments can also advantageously block communication from a device associated with an intruder to reduce the likelihood that the intruder can coordinate escape from a burglarized area. FIG. 1 illustrates an example system that facilitates security employing an FAP. System 100 can include a security system 104 , an FAP 106 and/or a core network 108 . In some embodiments, one or more of the security system 104 , FAP 106 and/or core network 108 can be electrically and/or communicatively coupled to one another to perform one or more functions of system 100 . The security system 104 and the FAP 106 can be located in a secure area 102 (e.g., a commercial building, residential building, gated open air area or the like). In some embodiments, the security system 104 and/or the FAP 106 are located outside of the secure area 102 while serving the secure area 102 . For example, the FAP 106 can be located outside of the secure area 102 while emitting signals that provide connectivity to mobile devices that can be located inside of the secure area 102 . The security system 104 can monitor and detect an intrusion into the secure area 102 . In some embodiments, the security system 104 can transmit a signal to the FAP 106 in response to detection of the intrusion. The security system 104 can transmit the signal to the FAP 106 via a wired and/or wireline connection in various embodiments. The core network 108 can be or can include a wireless or wired network to which the FAP 106 is communicatively coupled in some embodiments. For example, the core network 108 can include a broadband landline to which the FAP 106 is communicatively coupled. As another example, the core network 108 can be or include one or more public cell sites. For example, the core network 108 can include the public cell site to which a mobile device in an area served by the FAP 106 would be communicatively coupled immediately upon leaving the wireless channel associated with the FAP 106 . In some embodiments, the core network 108 can include one or more macro cells communicatively coupled to the FAP 106 . The FAP 106 can provide one or more access point services to one or more mobile devices on the white list of the FAP 106 . Additionally, the FAP 106 can be configured to conduct network listening on the mobility network within a selected geographical proximity to the FAP 106 . Based on the network listening, the FAP 106 can determine one or more frequencies in the area serviced by the FAP 106 . In various embodiments, the FAP 106 can store the frequencies detected for use in facilitating security via jamming operations as described herein. The FAP 106 can transmit and/or receive information to and/or from the security system 104 and/or core network 108 . In some embodiments, the FAP 106 can receive the signal indicative of an intrusion into the secure area 102 . The FAP 106 can receive the signal from the security system 104 in some embodiments. In other embodiments, the FAP 106 can receive the signal from any number of other sources capable of determining that an intrusion has occurred and/or capable of receiving information about the intrusion from the security system 104 . For example, the FAP 106 could receive the signal indicative of the intrusion from a network operator contacted by the security system 104 . In response to receiving the signal indicative of the intrusion, the FAP 106 can perform identification, warning and/or tracking functions on devices in the area served by the FAP 106 . The structure and/or functionality of the FAP 106 will now be described in more detail with reference to the remaining figures. Turning first to FIGS. 2 and 3 , FIG. 2 illustrates an example FAP (e.g., FAP 106 , 106 ′) that can be employed to facilitate security. FIG. 3 illustrates an example data storage of the FAP through which security can be facilitated. The FAP 106 ′ can include one or more of the structure and/or functionality of the FAP 106 described with reference to FIG. 1 . The FAP 106 ′ can include a communication component 200 , a jamming component 202 , a device identification component 204 , a white list component 206 , a warning generation component 208 , a tracking initiation component 210 , a memory 212 , a processor 214 and/or data storage 216 . In some embodiments, one or more of the communication component 200 , jamming component 202 , device identification component 204 , white list component 206 , warning generation component 208 , tracking initiation component 210 , memory 212 , processor 214 and/or data storage 216 can be electrically and/or communicatively coupled to one another to perform one or more of the functions of the FAP 106 ′. The communication component 200 can be configured to transmit and/or receive signals to and/or from the core network 108 , security system 104 and/or mobile devices on the white list of the FAP 106 ′. For example, in some embodiments, the communication component 200 can receive a signal indicative of an intrusion in an area associated with the FAP 106 ′. The signal can be received from the security system 104 in some embodiments. In some embodiments, the communication component 200 can perform network listening to determine one or more frequencies serving an area covered by the FAP 106 ′. The FAP 106 ′ can store the frequency information 310 in data storage 214 ′ of the FAP 106 ′. In some embodiments, the frequency information can be stored at a location remote from the FAP 106 ′ and accessed during an intrusion. The jamming component 202 can jam one or more frequencies in the detection range of the FAP 106 ′ in response to the communication component 200 receiving the signal indicative of the intrusion. In some embodiments, jamming can be commenced upon activation of a security system alarm or other indicator that an intrusion has occurred. In various embodiments, the frequencies jammed can be the one or more frequencies identified during network listening performed by the communication component 200 . In some embodiments, the jamming component 202 can jam the one or more frequencies until a telephone number or other identification for the device in the detection range of the FAP 106 ′ that fails to be on the white list of the FAP 106 ′ is retrieved. The white list 308 of the FAP 106 ′ can be stored in the data storage 214 ′. In some embodiments, the jamming component 202 can jam the one or more frequencies until a telephone number or other identification for a device in the area served by the FAP 106 ′ is retrieved. As such, in various embodiments, devices associated with information or telephone numbers that appear on an access attempt list for the FAP 106 ′ can also be determined as persons carrying such devices could be intruders into secure areas. After retrieval of the telephone number and/or identification, the jamming component 202 can cease jamming the frequencies. As such, one or more telephone calls to the device associated with the intruder and/or to or from a telephone on a white list of the FAP 106 ′ can be commenced during or after the intrusion. In some embodiments, the jamming component 202 can cease jamming the one or more frequencies after a selected period of time. Accordingly, the amount of time during which the frequencies are jammed, and communication disabled through the FAP 106 ′ can be limited. In some embodiments, in response to jamming the signal on which a device carried by an intruder is configured to transmit, the device can emit an attachment attempt that can be retrieved by the FAP 106 ′. Based on the attachment attempt, the FAP 106 ′ can determine the identification and/or telephone number associated with the device. The device identification component 204 can determine and/or record or store an identifier associated with devices in a detection range of the FAP 106 ′ that fail to be listed on the white list of the FAP 106 ′ (and/or devices otherwise deemed to be associated with an intruder). In some embodiments, the device identification component 204 can detect the attachment attempt emitted from the device, and the white list component 206 can determine that the device fails to be listed on the white list of the FAP 106 ′. The device identification component 204 can determine the device information and/or telephone number based on the attachment attempt. The device information 306 and/or telephone number information 302 can be stored in the data storage 214 ′ of the FAP 106 ′ in some embodiments. In various embodiments, the device information can include a Mobile Station International Subscriber Directory Number (MSISDN) 304 , an International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) and/or an International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI). The FAP 106 ′ can transmit the device information and/or telephone number to law enforcement, the security system 104 , a command center for the security system or the like. In some embodiments, the communication component 200 can transmit and/or receive signals to and/or from devices deemed to be associated with the intruder during an intrusion. In particular, the FAP 106 ′ can include information indicative of exception cases wherein the FAP 106 ′ allows attachment by one or more devices that fail to appear on the white list of the FAP 106 ′. In one embodiments, the FAP 106 ′ can allow devices in the area served by the FAP 106 ′ to attach to the FAP 106 ′ during an intrusion (notwithstanding the device fails to appear on the white lit for the FAP 106 ′). In some embodiments, the FAP 106 ′ can allow devices in the area served by the FAP 106 ′ to attach to the FAP 106 ′ (notwithstanding the device fails to appear on the white lit for the FAP 106 ′), during a particular time of day, day of week, month or year and/or during particular days, weeks or months. In various embodiments, the exception can be updated to address special circumstances of the property owner (e.g., to coincide with times during which the property owner expects to be away from the secure area). As such, the FAP 106 ′ can allow communication via the FAP 106 ′ with a device potentially associated with an intruder during an intrusion. In some cases, if the device that is discovered during the intrusion is not listed on the white list for the FAP 106 ′, the FAP 106 ′ does not allow the device to attach to the FAP 106 ′. Accordingly, while the device is detached from the FAP 106 ′ and frequencies are being jammed, the device is unable to transmit and/or receive telephone calls. The warning generation component 208 can generate a signal to initiate one or more different types of warnings of the intrusion. In various embodiments, the warnings can be automated warnings that are generated automatically in response to the detection of the device identification and/or telephone number of the device deemed to be associated with an intruder. In some embodiments, for example, the warning generation component 208 can generate warnings in the form of telephone calls transmitted to the device associated with the intruder. The telephone calls can warn the intruder that the burglary has been identified and/or that law enforcement will be arriving shortly. In some embodiments, the warning generation component 208 can transmit information to the security system 104 . The security system 104 and/or a command center associated with the security system 104 can transmit a warning to the secure area 102 in some embodiments. For example, in some embodiments, the warning generation component 208 can generate a signal that causes an audio device in the secure area 102 to emit a warning. In these examples, audio communication via speaker or other device in the secure area 102 can be employed to output an audible warning. The tracking initiation component 210 can initiate tracking of the device associated with the intruder. Tracking can be initiated and/or performed in a number of different ways. For example, in some embodiments, the FAP 106 ′ can allow the device to attach to the FAP 106 ′ (notwithstanding the device is not on the white list of the FAP 106 ′). The FAP 106 ′ can then track whether the device is attached to the FAP 106 ′ or whether the device is detached from the FAP 106 ′ (and has thus left the area served by the FAP 106 ′). In embodiments wherein the device is tracked such that the tracking initiation component 210 is able to determine whether the device is still in the area associated with the FAP 106 ′, such information can be provided to law enforcement and/or owners of the secure area experiencing the intrusion. Accordingly, in various embodiments, safety for law enforcement and property owners and/or the likelihood of apprehension of intruders can be enhanced. In another embodiment, the tracking initiation component 210 can generate a signal to cause text messages to be sent to the device deemed to be associated with the intruder. The tracking initiation component 210 can track the location of the device based, at least, on signals received in response to the text messages sent to the device. In another embodiment, the tracking initiation component 210 can communicate with a macro cell in a core network 108 to which the FAP 106 ′ is communicatively coupled. The tracking initiation component 210 can transmit to the macro cell information indicative of the device identification and/or telephone number. The macro cell can initiate tracking of the location of the device upon commencement of a telephone call from the macro cell. Accordingly, in some embodiments, the device can be tracked hours and/or days after the intrusion has occurred to increase the likelihood of intruder apprehension. In some embodiments, the tracking can be global positioning system (GPS) tracking. Processor 214 can perform one or more of the functions described herein with reference to the FAP 106 ′. The memory 212 can be a computer-readable storage medium storing computer-executable instructions and/or information configured to perform one or more of the functions described herein with reference to the FAP 106 ′. The data storage 216 can be configured to store information transmitted to, received by and/or processed by the FAP 106 ′. The data storage 216 can be described in greater detail with reference to FIG. 3 . FIGS. 4-9 illustrate example flowcharts of methods that facilitate security employing an FAP.

Although not shown, in some embodiments, a warning can be transmitted from a command center associated with a home security system that generates the signal indicative of the intrusion. FIG. 10 illustrates an example wireless communication environment with associated components that facilitate utilizing an FAP to facilitate security. In wireless environment 1000 , 1005 and 1055 can represent coverage macro cells, which can be served by base stations 1010 and 1080 (e.g., coupled to a target core network 1085 that can be operated by an acquired service provider), respectively. Macro cell coverage can be generally intended for outdoors locations for servicing mobile devices (e.g., user equipment (UE) 1040 A ), and such coverage can be achieved via a wireless link 1015 . Within macro cell coverage cell 1005 , a femto cell 1065 , served by a FAP 1030 , can be deployed. For example, FAP 1030 can include one or more of the structure and/or functionality of FAP 106 , 106 ′ described herein. A femto cell typically can cover an area 1045 that can be determined, at least in part, by transmission power allocated to FAP 1030 , path loss, shadowing, and so forth. Coverage area typically can be spanned by a coverage radius that detection ranges from 20 to 50 meters. Confined coverage area 1065 can be generally associated with an indoors area or a building, which can span about 5000 sq. ft. In some embodiments, the indoors area or building can be or include secure area 102 . Generally, FAP 1030 typically can service a number (e.g., a few or more) wireless devices (e.g., subscriber station 1040 B ) within confined coverage area 1065 . In an embodiment, FAP 1030 can integrate seamlessly with substantially any packet-switched (PS)-based and circuit-switched (CS)-based network; for instance, FAP 1030 can integrate into an existing 3GPP Core via conventional interfaces like Iu-CS, Iu-PS, Gi and/or Gn interfaces. In another embodiment, FAP 1030 can exploit high-speed downlink packet access in order to accomplish substantive bitrates. In yet another embodiment, FAP 1030 has a location area code (LAC) and/or routing area code (RAC) that can be different from the underlying macro cell network. These LAC and RAC can be used to identify subscriber station location for a variety of reasons, most notably to direct incoming voice and data traffic to appropriate paging transmitters. As a subscriber station, e.g., UE 1040 A , can leave macro cell coverage (e.g., cell 1005 ) and enter femto cell coverage (e.g., area 1015 ), as illustrated in environment 1000 . In some embodiments, a carrier frequency scan can be triggered by the UE 1040 A , which can detect the FAP 1030 . UE 1040 A can attempt to attach to the FAP 1030 through transmission and reception of attachment signaling, effected via a forward link (FL)/reverse link (RL) 1035 ; in an embodiment, the attachment signaling can include a Location Area Update (LAU) and/or Routing Area Update (RAU). Attachment attempts can be a part of procedures to ensure mobility, so voice calls and sessions can continue even after a macro cell-to-femto cell transition or vice versa. It is noted that UE 1040 can be employed seamlessly after either of the foregoing transitions. As described above, in various embodiments, FAP 1030 can jam frequencies for a UE 1040 A in the area of the FAP 1030 and UE 1040 A can emit attachment attempts in response to the jamming. The FAP 1030 can detect device information and/or telephone information for UE 1040 A based on the attachment attempt emitted from UE 1040 A . Femto cell networks can be designed to serve stationary or slow-moving traffic with reduced signaling loads compared to macro cell networks. A femto cell service provider (e.g., an entity that commercializes, deploys, and/or utilizes FAP 1030 ) therefore can be inclined to minimize unnecessary LAU/RAU signaling activity at substantially any opportunity to do so, and through substantially any available means. It is noted that substantially any mitigation of unnecessary attachment signaling/control can be advantageous for femto cell operation. Conversely, if not successful, UE 1040 generally can be commanded (through a variety of communication means) to select another LAC/RAC or enter “emergency calls only” mode. It can be appreciated that this attempt and handling process can occupy significant UE battery, and FAP capacity and signaling resources as well. When an attachment attempt is successful, UE 1040 can be allowed to camp on femto cell 1045 and incoming voice and data traffic can be paged and routed to the subscriber station through the FAP 1030 . As described above, in various embodiments, an FAP 1030 can allow a UE 1040 associated with an intruder into secure area 102 to attach to FAP 1030 in the case in which an exception to the rules governing the white list for the FAP 1030 occurs. Data traffic can be routed through a backhaul broadband wired network backbone 1060 (e.g., optical fiber backbone, twisted-pair line, T1/E1 phone line, DSL or coaxial cable). In some embodiments, an FAP 1030 can rely on a backhaul network backbone 1060 for routing and paging, and for packet communication, substantially any quality of service can handle heterogeneous packetized traffic. Namely, packet flows established for wireless communication devices (e.g., terminals 1040 A and 1040 B ) served by FAP 1030 , and for devices served through the backhaul network pipe 1060 . To improve the likelihood of positive subscriber experience or perception, FAP 1030 can maintain a high level of throughput for traffic (e.g., voice and data) utilized on a mobile device for one or more subscribers while in the presence of external, additional packetized or broadband, traffic associated with applications (e.g., web browsing, data transfer (e.g., content upload), and the like) executed in devices within the femto cell coverage area (e.g., area 1045 or area 1065 ). To provide further context for various embodiments described herein, FIGS. 11 and 12 illustrate an example wireless communication environment 1100 , with associated components for operation of a femto cell, and a block diagram of an example embodiment 1200 of a FAP, which can facilitate utilizing an FAP to facilitate security. Wireless communication environment 1100 includes two wireless network platforms: (i) A macro cell network platform 1110 that serves or facilitates communication) with user equipment 1175 via a macro cell radio access network (RAN) 1170. It should be appreciated that in cellular wireless technologies (e.g., 3GPP UMTS, high speed packet access (HSPA), 3GPP LTE, 3GPP ultra mobile broadband (UMB)), macro cell network platform 1110 can be embodied in a Core Network. (ii) A femto cell network platform 1180 , which can provide communication with UE 1175 through a femto cell RAN 1190 linked to the femto cell network platform 1180 via backhaul pipe(s) 1185, wherein backhaul pipe(s) are substantially the same a backhaul link 840 . It should be appreciated that femto cell network platform 1180 typically offloads UE 1175 from macro cell network, once UE 1175 attaches (e.g., through macro-to-femto cell handover or via a scan of channel resources in idle mode) to femto cell RAN. A RAN can include one or more base stations or APs, and its associated electronic circuitry and deployment cell site(s), in addition to a wireless radio link operated in accordance with the base station(s). Accordingly, macro cell RAN 1170 can comprise various coverage cells like cell 1005 , while femto cell RAN 1190 can comprise multiple FAPs. As mentioned above, deployment density in femto cell RAN 1190 can be substantially higher than in macro cell RAN 1170 . Generally, both macro cell and femto cell network platforms 1110 and 1180 can include components, e.g., nodes, gateways, interfaces, servers or platforms, that facilitate both PS and CS traffic (e.g., voice and data) and control generation for networked wireless communication. For example, macro cell network platform 1110 includes CS gateway node(s) 1112 which can interface CS traffic received from legacy networks like telephony network(s) 1140 (e.g., public switched telephone network (PSTN) or public land mobile network (PLMN)) or a SS7 network 1160 . Moreover, CS gateway node(s) 1112 interfaces CS-based traffic and signaling and gateway node(s) 1118 . In addition to receiving and processing CS-switched traffic and signaling, gateway node(s) 1118 can authorize and authenticate PS-based data sessions with served (e.g., through macro cell RAN) wireless devices. Data sessions can include traffic exchange with networks external to the macro cell network platform 1110 , like wide area network(s) (WANs) 1150 ; it should be appreciated that local area network(s) (LANs) can also be interfaced with macro cell network platform 1110 through gateway node(s) 1118 . Gateway node(s) 1118 can generate packet data contexts when a data session is established. It should be further appreciated that the packetized communication can include multiple flows that can be generated through server(s) 1114 . Macro cell network platform 1110 also includes serving node(s) 1116 that convey the various packetized flows of information or data streams, received through gateway node(s) 1118 . Server(s) 1114 can include one or more processor configured to confer at least in part the functionality of macro cell network platform 1110 . To that end, the one or more processor can execute code instructions stored in memory 1130 , for example. In example wireless environment 1100 , memory 1130 stores information related to operation of macro cell network platform 1110 . Information can include business data associated with subscribers; market plans and strategies (e.g., promotional campaigns, business partnerships; operational data for mobile devices served through macro cell network platform; service and privacy policies; end-user service logs for law enforcement). Memory 1130 can also store information from at least one of telephony network(s) 1140 , wide area network (WAN) 1150 or signaling system number 7 (SS7) network 1160 . Femto cell gateway node(s) 1184 have substantially the same functionality as PS gateway node(s) 1118 . Additionally, femto cell gateway node(s) 1184 can also include substantially all functionality of serving node(s) 1116 . In an embodiment, femto cell gateway node(s) 1184 facilitates handover resolution (e.g., assessment and execution). Server(s) 1182 have substantially the same functionality as described in connection with server(s) 1114 and can include one or more processors configured to confer at least in part the functionality of macro cell network platform 1110 . Moreover, the analysis component 1114 can be implemented or executed by server(s) 1182 and/or server(s) 1114 . To that end, the one or more processor can execute code instructions stored in memory 1186 , for example. Memory 1186 can include information relevant to operation of the various components of femto cell network platform 1180 . For example operational information that can be stored in memory 1186 can comprise, but is not limited to, subscriber information; contracted services; maintenance and service records; femto cell configuration (e.g., devices served through femto cell RAN 1190 ; access control lists or white lists); service policies and specifications; privacy policies; add-on features; femto cell measurement data). With respect to FIG. 12 , in example embodiment 1200 , FAP 1210 can receive and transmit signal(s) (e.g., traffic and control signals) from and to wireless devices, access terminals, wireless ports and routers, etc., through a set of antennas 1269 1 - 1269 N . It should be appreciated that while antennas 1269 1 - 1269 N are a part of communication platform 1225 , which comprises electronic components and associated circuitry that provides for processing and manipulating of received signal(s) (e.g., a packet flow) and signal(s) (e.g., a broadcast control channel) to be transmitted. In an embodiment, communication platform 1225 includes a transmitter/receiver (e.g., a transceiver) 1266 that can convert signal(s) from analog format to digital format upon reception, and from digital format to analog format upon transmission. In addition, receiver/transmitter 1266 can divide a single data stream into multiple, parallel data streams or perform the reciprocal operation. Coupled to transceiver 1266 is a multiplexer/demultiplexer 1267 that facilitates manipulation of signal in time and frequency space. Electronic component 1267 can multiplex information (data/traffic and control/signaling) according to various multiplexing schemes such as time division multiplexing (TDM), frequency division multiplexing (FDM) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), code division multiplexing (CDM), space division multiplexing (SDM). In addition, mux/demux component 1267 can scramble and spread information (e.g., codes) according to substantially any code known in the art; e.g., Hadamard-Walsh codes, Baker codes, Kasami codes, polyphase codes, and so on. A modulator/demodulator 1268 can be also a part of operational group 1225 , and can modulate information according to multiple modulation techniques, such as frequency modulation, amplitude modulation (e.g., M-ary quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), with M a positive integer), phase-shift keying (PSK), and the like. FAP 1210 also includes a processor 1245 configured to confer functionality, at least partially, to substantially any electronic component in the FAP 1210 , in accordance with embodiments of the embodiments. In particular, processor 1245 can facilitate FAP 1210 to implement configuration instructions received through communication platform 1225 , which can include storing data in memory 1255 . In addition, processor 1245 facilitates FAP 1210 to process data (e.g., symbols, bits or chips) for multiplexing/demultiplexing, such as effecting direct and inverse fast Fourier transforms, selection of modulation rates, selection of data packet formats, inter-packet times, etc. Moreover, processor 1245 can manipulate antennas 1269 1 - 1269 N to facilitate beamforming or selective radiation pattern formation, which can benefit specific locations (e.g., basement, home office) served by the FAP; and exploit substantially any other advantages associated with smart-antenna technology. Memory 1255 can store data structures, code instructions, system or device information like device identification codes (e.g., International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI), an International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI), a Mobile Station International Subscriber Directory Number (MSISDN) or a serial number) and specification such as multimode capabilities; code sequences for scrambling; spreading and pilot transmission, floor plan configuration, AP deployment and frequency plans; and so on. Moreover, memory 1255 can store configuration information such as schedules and policies; FAP address(es) or geographical indicator(s); access lists (e.g., white lists); license(s) for utilization of add-features for FAP 1210 , and so forth. In some embodiments, data storage 216 , 214 ′ can be implemented in memory 1255 . In embodiment 1200 , processor 1245 is coupled to the memory 1255 in order to store and retrieve information necessary to operate and/or confer functionality to communication platform 1225 , broadband network interface 1235 (e.g., a broadband modem), and other operational components (e.g., multimode chipset(s), power supply sources) that support FAP 1210 . In addition, various embodiments disclosed herein can also be implemented through (i) program modules stored in a computer-readable storage medium or memory (e.g., memory 1186 or memory 1255 ) and executed by a processor (e.g., processor 1245 ) and/or (ii) one or more other combinations of hardware and software or hardware and firmware. Generally, program modules include routines, programs, components, data structures, etc., that perform particular tasks or implement particular abstract data types. Moreover, those skilled in the art will appreciate that the inventive methods can be practiced with other computer system configurations, including single-processor or multiprocessor computer systems, minicomputers, mainframe computers, as well as personal computers, hand-held computing devices, microprocessor-based or programmable consumer electronics, and the like, each of which can be operatively coupled to one or more associated devices. The illustrated embodiments of the embodiments herein can be also practiced in distributed computing environments where certain tasks are performed by remote processing devices that are linked through a communications network. In a distributed computing environment, program modules can be located in both local and remote memory storage devices. Computing devices typically include a variety of media, which can include computer-readable storage media and/or communications media, which two terms are used herein differently from one another as follows. Computer-readable storage media can be any available storage media that can be accessed by the computer and includes both volatile and nonvolatile media, removable and non-removable media. By way of example, and not limitation, computer-readable storage media can be implemented in connection with any method or technology for storage of information such as computer-readable instructions, program modules, structured data or unstructured data. Computer-readable storage media can include, but are not limited to, RAM, ROM, EEPROM, flash memory or other memory technology, CD-ROM, digital versatile disk (DVD) or other optical disk storage, magnetic cassettes, magnetic tape, magnetic disk storage or other magnetic storage devices or other tangible and/or non-transitory media which can be used to store desired information. Computer-readable storage media can be accessed by one or more local or remote computing devices, e.g., via access requests, queries or other data retrieval protocols, for a variety of operations with respect to the information stored by the medium. Communications media typically embody computer-readable instructions, data structures, program modules or other structured or unstructured data in a data signal such as a modulated data signal, e.g., a carrier wave or other transport mechanism, and includes any information delivery or transport media. The term “modulated data signal” or signals refers to a signal that has one or more of its characteristics set or changed in such a manner as to encode information in one or more signals. By way of example, and not limitation, communication media include wired media, such as a wired network or direct-wired connection, and wireless media such as acoustic, RF, infrared and other wireless media. The systems and/or methods described herein can employ artificial intelligence (AI) to facilitate automating one or more features in accordance with the embodiments. The embodiments (e.g., in connection with automatically identifying acquired cell sites that provide a maximum value/benefit after addition to an existing communication network) can employ various AI-based schemes for carrying out various embodiments thereof. Moreover, the classifier can be employed to determine a ranking or priority of the each cell site of the acquired network. A classifier is a function that maps an input attribute vector, x=(x1, x2, x3, x4, . . . , xn), to a confidence that the input belongs to a class, that is, f(x)=confidence(class). Such classification can employ a probabilistic and/or statistical-based analysis (e.g., factoring into the analysis utilities and costs) to prognose or infer an action that a user desires to be automatically performed. A support vector machine (SVM) is an example of a classifier that can be employed. The SVM operates by finding a hypersurface in the space of possible inputs, which the hypersurface attempts to split the triggering criteria from the non-triggering events. Intuitively, this makes the classification correct for testing data that is near, but not identical to training data. Other directed and undirected model classification approaches include, e.g., naïve Bayes, Bayesian networks, decision trees, neural networks, fuzzy logic models, and probabilistic classification models providing different patterns of independence can be employed. Classification as used herein also is inclusive of statistical regression that is utilized to develop models of priority. As will be readily appreciated, one or more of the embodiments can employ classifiers that are explicitly trained (e.g., via a generic training data) as well as implicitly trained (e.g., via observing UE behavior, operator preferences, historical information, receiving extrinsic information). For example, SVMs can be configured via a learning or training phase within a classifier constructor and feature selection module. Thus, the classifier(s) can be used to automatically learn and perform a number of functions, including but not limited to determining according to a predetermined criteria which of the acquired cell sites will benefit a maximum number of subscribers and/or which of the acquired cell sites will add minimum value to the existing communication network coverage, etc. The criteria can include, but is not limited to, historical patterns, UE behavior, user preferences, service provider preferences and/or policies, FAP parameters, location of the femto cell, location of the acquired cell sites, etc. As employed herein, the term “processor” can refer to substantially any computing processing unit or device comprising, but not limited to comprising, single-core processors; single-processors with software multithread execution capability; multi-core processors; multi-core processors with software multithread execution capability; multi-core processors with hardware multithread technology; parallel platforms; and parallel platforms with distributed shared memory. Additionally, a processor can refer to an integrated circuit, an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC), a digital signal processor (DSP), a field programmable gate array (FPGA), a programmable logic controller (PLC), a complex programmable logic device (CPLD), a discrete gate or transistor logic, discrete hardware components or any combination thereof designed to perform the functions described herein. Processors can exploit nano-scale architectures such as, but not limited to, molecular and quantum-dot based transistors, switches and gates, in order to optimize space usage or enhance performance of user equipment. A processor can also be implemented as a combination of computing processing units. As used herein, terms such as “data storage,” data storage,” “database,” and substantially any other information storage component relevant to operation and functionality of a component, refer to “memory components,” or entities embodied in a “memory” or components comprising the memory. It will be appreciated that the memory components or computer-readable storage media, described herein can be either volatile memory or nonvolatile memory or can include both volatile and nonvolatile memory. Memory disclosed herein can include volatile memory or nonvolatile memory or can include both volatile and nonvolatile memory. By way of illustration, and not limitation, nonvolatile memory can include read only memory (ROM), programmable ROM (PROM), electrically programmable ROM (EPROM), electrically erasable PROM (EEPROM) or flash memory. Volatile memory can include random access memory (RAM), which acts as external cache memory. By way of illustration and not limitation, RAM is available in many forms such as static RAM (SRAM), dynamic RAM (DRAM), synchronous DRAM (SDRAM), double data rate SDRAM (DDR SDRAM), enhanced SDRAM (ESDRAM), Synchlink DRAM (SLDRAM), and direct Rambus RAM (DRRAM). The memory (e.g., data storages, databases) of the various embodiments is intended to comprise, without being limited to, these and any other suitable types of memory. What has been described above includes mere examples of various embodiments. It is, of course, not possible to describe every conceivable combination of components or methodologies for purposes of describing these examples, but one of ordinary skill in the art can recognize that many further combinations and permutations of the present embodiments are possible. Accordingly, the embodiments disclosed and/or claimed herein are intended to embrace all such alterations, modifications and variations that fall within the spirit and scope of the appended claims. Furthermore, to the extent that the term “includes” is used in either the detailed description or the claims, such term is intended to be inclusive in a manner similar to the term “comprising” as “comprising” is interpreted when employed as a transitional word in a claim.
