Abstract:

Despite the increase in the demand for high speed Internet services, the last-mile solutions currently available neither are inexpensive enough to attract the majority of the population, nor are they available in low density populated areas, This thesis examines Fixed Broadband Wireless FBW as an alternative technology to the current last-mile solutions, The analysis shows that LMDS and MMDS are the most promising emerging FBW technologies and that they are able, by utilizing microwave radio as their fundamental transport medium and using high modulation schemes, to provide digital two-way voice, data, video and Internet services.
