How to shrink a basestation into a Raspberry Pi

From PA Consulting Group, a competition that challenged entrants to use a Raspberry Pi to make the world a better place – http://www.paconsulting.com/raspberry…
“Here our experts use one to create a basestation for our own mobile-phone network.
“If you are developing your entry into the competition and are looking for inspiration — or are just interested in what can be done with this game-changing new technology — please take a look.
“One of the technology highlights of 2012 has been the Raspberry Pi platform. This $30 Linux-based computer, about the size of a credit card, is targeted at educating the next generation of software and hardware engineers in programming. Recognising its potential, we teamed up with the Raspberry Pi Foundation to launch a competition (now closed to new entrants) that challenged schoolchildren, students and programmers to use a Raspberry Pi to make the world a better place.
“Meanwhile, to evaluate what the platform was capable of, our wireless experts at the PA Technology Centre got hold of a Raspberry Pi to see if we could implement a mobile phone base-station that could run our own private mobile-phone network.
