A base transceiver station (BTS), also called as radio base station (RBS), is an equipment that enables wireless communication between user equipment, such as mobile phones, WLL phones and computers, and a network. The equipment sends/receives radio signals to/from user equipment and converts them to digital signals. These signals are passed on to the network to route to other terminals in the network or to the Internet.
The term BTS is applicable for any type of wireless communication standards, it is generally used with respect to mobile communication technologies such as CDMA and GSM. A BTS is controlled by a base station controller.
BTS offers several benefits such as faster telephony coverage to remote places, promotion of universal access to ICT services, easing information dissemination and supporting a broad range of value added services in under-served and unserved areas.
