Base Station


Within the computer network world, a base station may be the main hub for wireless network connection between computers.

Today, these kinds of base station are generally known as a wireless router. It allows mobile phones to work within LAN (Local Area Network) which is linked to a mobile or wireless service provider.

In a computer netwok it is a transceiver acting as a router for computers in the network, possibly connecting them to a local area network and/or the internet. In traditional wireless communications it can refer to the hub of a dispatch fleet such as a taxi or delivery fleet, the base of a TETRA network as used by government and emergency services or shack.
