Wireless Local Loop

Abstract

Wireless local loop systems are available to provide both broadband and narrowband services to customers. Narrowband systems are generally either based on cordless or mobile standards, or a manufacturer's proprietary technology. They are generally designed to offer voice-band services although some are capable of delivering ISDN. The broadband systems are either circuit or cell based. These systems usually operate at millimetre-wave frequencies where a line-of-sight path is required between the customer and a central base-station. Services are typically leased line, ATM and LAN interconnect.
