Abstract

At present, Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) supporting broadband multimedia communication are being deployed around the world. Standards include HIPERLAN/2, and IEEE 802.11a /802.11g. These systems provide channel adaptive data rates up to 54 Mbps over short ranges. It is likely that WLANs will become an important complementary technology to 3G cellular systems and typically used to provide ‘hot-spot’ coverage. In this paper, work performed under the framework of the IST ROMANTIK project for the use of WLANs in conjunction with UMTS is presented. In order to quantify the throughput enhancement benefits offered to a cellular network by wireless LAN technology, novel ray-tracing, software-simulated physical layer performance results and optimal base-station deployment analysis have been applied to inter-networking
