cellular system



Wireless communication technology in which several small exchanges (called cells) equipped with low-power radio antennas (strategically located over a wide geographical area) are interconnected through a central exchange. As a receiver (cell phone) moves from one place to the next, its identity, location, and radio frequency is handed-over by one cell to another without interrupting a call.
