"Single-cell wireless LAN: all of the wireless end systems are within range of a single control module. Multiple-cell wireless LAN: there are multiple control modules interconnected by a wired LAN; each control module supports a number of wireless end systems within its transmission range."

A single access point may not be adequate for a large organization. The access point may lack the necessary range or may not support enough users. Fortunately, you can use multiple access points to add extra range and support. When multiple access points are used, the cells tend to overlap.
