Designations of the radio base stations

While the English designation of the radio base station in 2nd generation mobile networks is Base Transceiver Station( BTS), in 3rd generation ( 3G) mobile networks, i.e. UMTS, it is referred to as NodeB, in 4th generation ( 4G) it is Evolved NodeB (eNodeB), and in 5th generation( 5G) mobile networks it is Next Generation NodeB (gNB or gNodeB).

In 5G networks, the radio base station is a Next-Generation NodeB, which consists of the Centralized Unit( CU), the Distributed Unit( DU), and a Radio Unit( RU). The Centralized Unit supports the protocols in the higher layers, the Distributed Unit those in the lower layers.
