microcell

[′mī·krə‚sel]
(cell and molecular biology)
A micronucleus within a layer of cytoplasm and a membrane.

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.

(2) (MicroCell) An indoor cellular tower from AT&T. See femtocell.

Some of the Arm CPUs, such as R-Car or Zynq, are equipped with a so called embedded trace macrocell (ETM) that is able to collect program flow information during the program run.
"The small antennas work in conjunction with existing macrocell antennas.
1, the downlink data transmission scenario of a two-tier HCN with underlay model is considered, where the energy-harvesting small cell network and the macrocell network are deployed in the same area.
The current mobile network relies on a relatively small number of macrocell base stations with a range of twenty miles or more, and antennas mounted high on cellphone towers or rooftops.
In [6], an HO mechanism between Macrocell and Femtocell in LTE based networks is proposed.
Therefore, corrosion detection technologies were developed including chain drag method (ASTM D4580-12), electrochemical half-cell potential (HCP), Tafel extrapolation technique (TP), linear polarization resistance (LPR) [3-5], macrocell current (MC) [6], radio-frequency identification (RFID), and sacrificial sensors (SS).
Development of cognitive femtocell network (CFN) is able to provide solutions to improve the cost effectiveness in several scenarios related to spectrum scarcity because the femtocell network can be implemented to share the spectrum with the macrocell network [5].
We have a technology called the MacroCell LTE which allows public
Enterprise and governmental facilities broadband needs with the capability to deliver up to ten times faster bandwidth for macrocell backhaul, or access broadband for commercial use, whether that be a multi-dwelling residential unit, such as a block of flats, a business park, or a university campus through mBond.
Denish NG, Director, Marketing and Infrastructure Solutions, Rosenberger said, "The Indian telecom industry has witnessed increasing investments in HetNet infrastructure with the deployment of C-RAN (Cloud Radio Access Networks) architectures, traditional macrocell base stations, small cells and DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) networks, over past few years.
Dense deployment of small cells over traditional macrocell s is considered as a key enabling technique for the emerging fifth-generation (5G) cellular networks [1-4].
