Executive Summary

This paper describes the Wireless IP Access System (WIPAS); a Point-to-MultiPoint (P-MP) Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) system that provides broadband IP service for both business and home users with low charge. First, its concept and features are presented. WIPAS exclusively uses the 26 GHz, a frequency with significant bandwidth available for FWA suitable for providing highly-reliable broadband service. The transmission rates of radio and Ether frame data are up to 80 and 46 Mbit/s, respectively. Its compactness and light weight enable easy deployment in various places. Two types of the commercial services based on WIPAS currently provided in Japan, are presented. One is compatible with the optical fiber service called Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH).
