What is a small cell?

Base Station Antenna Cable


Small cell is an umbrella term used to describe tiny radio access points (APs) or wireless network base stations with low radio frequency (RF) power output, footprint, and range. Small cells enhance cellular network coverage and capacity in areas of highest usage demand, such as densely populated urban centers. Looking ahead, the fifth generation (5G) of small cells will usher in an era of massive innovation, ensuring significantly improved signal penetration and superior coverage.



How do small cells work?


Operator-controlled small cells can be deployed indoors or outdoors in licensed, shared, or unlicensed spectrum. The physical size of the device inspired the names of these tiny base stations.



Small cells look nothing like macro cells, the tall cellular towers people have grown accustomed to seeing on highways or on top of buildings. Small cells are much smaller -- about the size of a pizza box.



Because of their small size and compact size, you can find these low-power small cells installed every few blocks to supplement macro cells in densely populated areas. In this case, the mobile carrier that runs the carrier's network typically connects the small cells to physical structures such as the sides of buildings, street lights and signs. They are essential for data transfer between wireless devices.
