base station

(1) A holder (see cradle).

(2) In general, a transmitter and receiver of electronic signals.

(3) An earth-bound transceiver station for wireless transmission to a communications satellite. See earth station and transceiver.

(4) A transceiver station for wireless transmission to cellular phones and devices. In 2G GSM systems, the base station is a "base transceiver station" (BTS). In 3G and LTE networks, base stations are known as "Node B" and "Evolved Node B" (eNB) stations respectively. See 3G, LTE and transceiver.

(5) A transceiver station for a wireless local area network (WLAN). A Wi-Fi base station is an "access point." See access point, transceiver and wireless LAN.
