What is Umbrella cell?


  • A freeway crossing very small cells produces an important number of handovers among the different small neighboring cells. In order to solve this problem, the concept of umbrella cells is introduced. An umbrella cell covers several microcells. The power level inside an umbrella cell is increased comparing to the power levels used in the microcells that form the umbrella cell. When the speed of the mobile is too high, the mobile is handed off to the umbrella cell. The mobile will then stay longer in the same cell (in this case the umbrella cell) . This will reduce the number of handovers and the work of the network.
  • A too important number of handover demands and the propagation characteristics of a mobile can help to detect its high speed.
    Umbrella Cell Approach is Used for Both Low Speed and High Speed Users. High Speed Vehicles Crosses the Cellular Boundary Very Rapidly. So, Using Umbrella Approach One Big Tower is Placed at the Centre of Area to Provide Network Connectivity to High Speed Users to Minimize the Number of Handoffs. Same Way It is Useful to Low Speed Vehicles Also. As It Moves in One Cell Only, Microcell Tower is Also Provided for Them for Network Connectivity
