Pico cells are a small wireless communication base station covering a small area, often used to extend cellular network coverage to indoor or outdoor areas where signals can not easily penetrate, and also to improve data transfer throughput for mobile users and increase capacity in the mobile network.
Femto cells are a small cellular, low-power wireless access points, typically designed for use in a home or small business. Femto cells deliver significantly improved coverage inside homes, small offices, and outdoor public spaces. This means a stronger signal and better voice quality, plus improved data download and upload speeds.
The aim of this paper is to explain the effect of pico cells and femto cells to reduce the predicted path loss, this achieved by taking a different scenarios and using a MATLAB 2008a programming language to compare the obtained results.
From the results obtained, once can see the importance of using this type of cells to improve the signal quality of the mobile phone.
