Definitions for "Access point base station"
An Access Point Base Station - sometimes called a 'femtocell', is a scalable, multi-channel, two-way communication device extending a typical base station by incorporating all of the major components of the telecommunications infrastructure. A typical example is a UMTS access point base station containing a Node-B, RNC and SGN with only an Ethernet (or ATM/TDM) connection to the Internet or Intranet. Application of Vo IP allows such a unit to provide voice and data services in the same way as a normal base station, but with the deployment simplicity of a Wi Fi access point.
