Base Station Installation

What is a base station, anyway?

A base station is a wireless station set up as a base used to communicate with mobile wireless units (like cell phones, PHS, and computers). In order to enable wireless communication, the base station determines the location of the units and is responsible for establishing a connection with the main telephone network.

Because wireless units can only communicate within so-called "communication areas", we need to be inside such an area in order to make calls.

Which is to say, base stations are indispensable in order for us to use our cell phones and computers.
