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.
