multi-cell network

Multi-cell networks are radio networks that consist of several base stations and in which several radio cells are controlled by a central controller.

In WLANs, for example, setting up several autonomous cells next to each other is conceivable and may even make sense for security reasons. The individual cells of such a network can be interconnected by means of roaming and bridging functions to form a larger, fully integrated wireless local area network. Access points are used to provide access to wired networks.

Typically, wireless local area networks with radio technology in Europe operate in the 2.4 GHz band. This means that in multi-cell networks, all radio cells are assigned to the same frequency band. Adjacent radio cells share the radio channel and its transmission capacity in the overlap area.
