Overlay vs Macro
by: Sean (Tower Genius)

The industry has many terms that apply to more than one piece of equipment. For the easiest understanding of the terms in questions, a "macro" site a standard wireless telecommunications facility consisting of a full blown cell site. An "overlay" usually refers to sites that may surround a macro site, that may work in conjunction with that macro site or may operate independently from the macro site, utilizing micro cells, small cells or DAS (distributed antenna system) style propagation system.

I hope that helps.
