What are Phone Networks?
A mobile phone network or cellular phone network as it is also known, is made up of a large number of signal areas called cells. Users on the network can cross into different cells without loosing connection.
Within each cell you will find a base station or mobile phone tower, which sends and receives the mobile transmissions. A mobile device will connect to the nearest or least congested base station. The base stations are connected to a digital exchange where the communication is sent to other telephone or data networks.
Communication over the mobile network can be made up of voice, data, images and text messages.
