Existing wireless network architectures and the increasing demand for cellular services are reviewed. Wireless network control tasks and the structure of a cellular packet switch (CPS) based on an optical fiber metropolitan area network (MAN) are described. Protocols for moving information through the MAN focusing on handoff, a crucial function of wireless networks, are discussed. The results of an analysis of switch performance as measured by capacity and the distribution of functionality are presented. Several open issues regarding the capability of the CPS to deliver telephone service to wireless terminals, including privacy and security issues, are discussed.<>
