microcell

(1) A geographic area covered by a cellular carrier, generally no more than a mile and a half in diameter. Microcells are used in cities and other densely populated venues. The smaller "picocell" reaches approximately 600 feet, whereas the traditional high-power "macrocell" tower can cover an area as large as 20 miles in diameter or more. See cellphone.

It was proven to have satisfactory prediction accuracy for 910 MHz and 1.48 GHz radio wave propagation in urban microcellular networks. In the process of executing RT procedure, a compromise between execution time and calculation accuracy is achieved by the creation of the new storage structure, definition of the type weight of the ray, limitation of limit number, acceleration of handling diffraction sources, and operation of generating the virtual source tree and finding propagation paths at one time.
