The area of radio range or coverage in which the wireless devices can communicate with the base station. The size of the cell depends upon the speed of the transmission, the type of antenna used, and the physical environment, as well as other factors.
The area covered by a cellular base station. A cell site may sectorise its antennas to service several cells from one locationCell siteThe facility housing the transmitters/receivers, the antennas and associated equipment Cell splitting
A geographic area within a cellular phone system, defined by the radio coverage of one base station.
The geographic area determining the signal range from each base station.
The radio frequency coverage area in the cellular system resulting from operation of a single multiple-channel set of base station frequencies.
The area controlled by one cell site. All calls made within the cell go by radio waves to that cell site. Cells are usually hexagonal and can be anywhere from 0.4 miles up to 15 or more miles in radius.
The geographical area covered by a Base Transceiver Station (BTS). Another kind of 'cell' with a different meaning is an ATM cell.
Area covered by the signals from a base station.
an area, bounded by latitude and longitude lines on four sides, defined by a geographic domain name in the .geo hierarchy, such as 3e4n.10e50n.geo.
A geographic area over which a radio base station transmits and receives radio signals.
The geographic region that is serviced by one base station in either analog cellular or digital networks.
The basic geographic unit of a cellular system and the basis for the generic industry term "cellular." A city or county is divided into small "cells," each of which is equipped with a low-powered radio transmitter/receiver. The cells can vary in size depending on terrain and capacity demands. By controlling the transmission power and the radio frequencies assigned from one cell to another, a computer at the Mobile Telephone Switching Office (MTSO) monitors the movement and transfers (or hands off) the phone call to another cell and another radio frequency as needed.
The geographic area encompassing the signal range from one base station (a site containing a radio transmitter/receiver and network communication equipment). Wireless transmission networks are comprised of many hexagonal, overlapping cell sites to efficiently use radio spectrum for wireless transmissions. Also, the basis for the term "cellular phone" below.
The basic geographic unit of a wireless system. A city or county divided into smaller "cells," each of which is equipped with a low-powered radio transmitter/receiver. By controlling the transmission power, the radio frequencies assigned to one cell can be limited to the boundaries of that cell.
In a cellular system, a cell is the individual geographical unit of coverage. Each cell is equipped with a low-powered receiver/transmitter, which services the immediate area.
The unit of a base station having the ability to radiate in a given geographic area; a "sector" or "face" of a physical radio equipment implementation.
The basic geographic unit of a cellular system and the root term of cellular. An overlapping network of cells make up city coverage, and each of them are equipped with a radio transmitter and receiver or a base station. DIGITAL Information represented by non-continuous values or signals sent between cell phones. It is binary, or consists of 0 and 1. DUAL BAND A wireless phone which is capable of operating on two different frequencies.
A service area that can be covered by a wireless transmitter.
Geographic area covered by a radio transceiver in a mobile communications system.
The coverage area of an individual base station or BTS in a mobile network. Can accommodate a hierarchical system of macrocells, microcells and picocells to increase coverage density.
The specific geographical area covered by a base station.
The basic geographic unit of wireless coverage. Also, shorthand for generic industry term "cellular." A region is divided into smaller "cells," each equipped with a low-powered radio transmitter/receiver. The radio frequencies assigned to one cell can be limited to the boundaries of that cell. As a wireless call moves from one cell to another, a computer at the Mobile Telephone Switching Office (MTSO) monitors the call and at the proper time, transfers the phone call to the new cell and new radio frequency. The handoff is performed so quickly that it's not noticeable to the callers.
The geographic region in which Radio Frequency (RF) transmission from one fixed transmission site can be received at acceptable levels of signal strength using an omnidirectional or a directional antenna. In a cellular network, a cell represents a geographic area within which a particular bandwidth of radio frequency channels can be received at adequate signal strength.
Loosely, one or more collocated base stations. They can service different angular sectors, different frequencies, or both.
The geographic area covered by a single base station in a cellular mobile network.
The basic geographic unit of a cellular system and the basis for the generic industry term "cellular." A cell is an area where calls are handled by a particular cell site, which is equipped with a low-powered radio transmitter/receiver or base station.
In communications and networking, a fixed-size packet of data. In cellular telephone systems, a geographic area.
The geographic area encompassing the signal range from one base station. Wireless networks are comprised of many overlapping cells to efficiently use radio spectrum for wireless transmissions. See Also: Base Station
As in "cell phone" or "cellular" mobile wireless telecom service -- a cell is the area of connectivity from each wireless base station
A room. In Lakat, the barracks are called cells, with a cell for each student. On a ship, the Gul's ‘ready room' is called the Command Cell. The officer quarters on ships and stations are also known as cells.
In cellular mobile telephony,the geographic area served by one transmitter. Subscribers may move from cell to cell.
In personal communications systems (cellular mobile phone systems) a cell is the geographic area served by a single base station. Cells are arranged so that base-station frequencies can be reused between cells. In asychronous transfer mode (ATM) networks, a cell is a packet of data.
Geographic area in cellular telephone systems in which all cellular transmissions are controlled by a single cell site.
Cell: The basic geographical unit of a cellular communications system. Service coverage of a given area is based on an interlocking network of cells, each with a radio base station (transmitter/receiver) at its center. The size of each cell is determined by the terrain and forecasted number of users.
A geographical area, four to 20 miles, surrounding a radio antenna designated for wireless transmission.
A geographic area covered by a particular base station.
radio neighbourhood, area where all nodes can communicate with each other. As the range over radio is limited, the network is split into independent cells and a cell to cell communication is provided (via access point or internal routing).
The geographic area covered by a cellular telephone transmitter. A connected group of cells form a cell system, which is what you gain access to when you sign up for cellular telephone service.
A geographical area in which the transceivers of one base station provide coverage. Cells can vary in size and they are usually hexagonal in shape.
