Through a Macro cell base station, the local provider can deliver broadband speed audio, video and data services with few packet losses. Essentially, subscribers will be able to establish and maintain broadband connectivity anytime and wherever they are as long as they are within the maximum range of the Macro cell base signals.
The Micro cell base solution of Airspan on the other hand is much cheaper. Small and medium scale companies can easily deploy it. The downside however of micro cell is its reduced range capabilities. This will affect connectivity and subscribers can experience some data losses if located at the outer limits of the base range. This is ideal for small networks that need broadband connections.
