HiperLAN/2 is an upcoming standard, which is being specified by the ETSI/BRAN project. High Performance Radio Local Area Network type 2 (HiperLAN/2) is one of the wireless broadband access networks, shall provide high-speed communications of up to 54 Mbps between mobile terminals and various broadband infrastructure networks. This paper presents an overview of the H/2 standard together with simulated physical layer performance results for each of the transmission mode define in the standard for channel A, C and E as these channels are the most common environments where H/2 will be deployed. Furthermore, the effect on system's throughput as the number of users and number of connections per user increases are also investigated. At the end, some comparison are made between HiperLAN/2 and IEEE 802.11(a) standards as they are two competing systems.
