Wireless Personal Communications: What Is It?

Donald C. Cox

One-line summary: Wireless PCS is in a chaotic and transitionary state; it will evolve into two main classes - "high-tier" systems that focus on highly mobile voice communications, and "low-tier" systems that minimize cost, maximize the number of users per cell, and provide voice and data capability.

Overview/Main Points


This paper gives describes the current state of wireless communications and speculates on the future, from a telecommunications perspective. The evolutionary trends presented are strongly argued and supported with evidence, and the facts described are accurate without being overly detailed.
