Cellular networks are linked collections of wireless mobile base stations, each containing one or more transceiver (transmitter-receiver). Each base station is responsible for communicating with any mobile telephones or related devices within range of it, in an area known as a cell.

Cellular networks are linked collections of wireless mobile base stations, each containing one or more transceiver (transmitter-receiver). Each base station is responsible for communicating with any mobile telephones or related devices within range of it, in an area known as a cell. Each device within a cell may be assigned a particular frequency range and a schedule for transmitting and receiving information to avoid interference from other devices in the cell. Each device is referenced by unique identifiers, and as a mobile phone (or 'cell phone') is carried from one cell to another, it registers (sometimes mid-call) with the nearest base station, allowing for a smooth 'hand-off' from one cell to the next. Cellular networks are designed so that each cell will have the same size and shape (typically hexagonal). However, each base station has a specific range, frequency bandwidth and data capacity, so network coverage will vary from place to place and from one frequency to another.
