This paper describes a distributed radio port controller architecture to provide PCS services in a micro-cellular environment. The architecture allows for rapid introduction of PCS services for mobile users using existing central office switches. Circuit and packet data services are efficiently integrated with voice services. We present the response of the vendor community to this architecture, and discuss the feasibility of its deployment. Integration of this architecture with cellular systems is explored to provide national coverage. Issues regarding seamless handovers between pedestrian and vehicular speeds in a two-tier radio system are discussed. Finally, the preliminary result of testing to validate the architecture by a simulator in a testbed is presented
