AT&T and Cisco have developed a robust small cell solution for the home and home office: the AT&T Micro-Cell. The AT&T Micro-Cell provides cellular coverage indoors where you need it most. It connects to AT&T's network using existing broadband Internet service. With the AT&T Micro-Cell, customers receive improved cellular signal performance for both voice calls and cellular data applications.


Microcellular systems are typically used to provide low cost mobile phone systems in high-density environments such as large cities. There are 3G micro cell devices that expands the network for the particular areas like as a mall, a hotel, or a transportation hub. We can register multiple mobile numbers with that device.

For example : A mobile number “08956879510” is registered in the 3G micro cell device, and when that mobile device comes in the coverage of the 3G micro cell device network ,it will catch the network and can operate on it.


A microcell is a cell in a mobile phone network served by a low power cellular base station (tower), covering a limited area such as a mall, a hotel, or a transportation hub. A microcell uses power control to limit the radius of its coverage area.

A microcellular network is a radio network composed of microcells.

    The technology definitely sounds cutting edge. Few queries

    How is it relevant from testing point of view ?

    what would it entail to test such a micro cell ?

    how would it impact the current mobile solutions ?

    would 20 minute be ok for this session ?
