Base Station

A base station in a mobile radio system is a radio receiver that communicates with mobile stations, which connect cellular calls to a public telephone network. It can also communicate directly with other base stations and the public telephone network. Each base station covers a geographical area called a cell and belongs to a specific telecommunications company. However, rival companies can have their own base stations in the same geographical area.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Base Station

A base station generates a much greater wattage than a traditional single two-way radio, benefiting SMBs that rely on a mobile radio system for communication. For example, employees on an industrial site can exchange messages over long distances with limited interference.
