Gartner Glossary


A femtocell is a small, A5-size base station box aimed at improving indoor coverage, especially for higher-frequency services such as third generation (3G) services. Similar to picocells, femtocells are even smaller cellular base stations that are designed for use in residential or corporate environments that connect to the customer’s own broadband connection using an Internet Protocol link for backhaul.
