There was such a dispute associated with cellular networks.
As far as I understand the principle of operation of cellular networks, the connectivity of one subscriber with another is as follows:
My phone communicates with the BS. BS communicates with the interlocutor through a series of other BS, so, as I understand it, these networks are called cellular.
My opponent argues that the relationship is as follows:
My phone is associated with BS, BS with the satellite, the satellite BS of the interlocutor, and the interlocutor of BS with the phone of the interlocutor.
Prompt, please, who is right?
