Abstract

The embodiment of the invention provides a cell switching method. The cell switching method comprises the following steps: receiving a physical cell identity (PCI) of a target cell from user equipment (UE); acquiring position information, wherein the position information is used for representing the position of the UE or controlling the position of a target base station of the target cell; determining the target cell switched from the UE according to the PCI of the target cell and the position information; sending a switching request to the target cell switched from the UE, and performing UE switching. The embodiment of the invention further provides a base station and the UE, which are used for determining the target cell switched from the UE according to the PCI of the target cell and the position information. The phenomenon that the target cell cannot be determined due to cell PCI collision can be avoided, and cell switching delay under the condition of the PCI collision is reduced.
