Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) developed the wireless IP access system (WIPAS), a point-to-multipoint fixed wireless access (FWA) system utilizing the 26-GHz frequency band for home and small office-home office (SOHO) users to provide broadband Internet access service. WIPAS provides a broadband access service by combining wireless technology with optical fiber. We describe this structure as "fiber + radio." WIPAS provides a best-effort-type IP service with the transmission rate of 80 Mbit/s. WIPAS is compatible with FTTH in terms of cost, transmission speed and user interface, and is a part of NTT's broadband access infrastructure. The access point (AP, hub station) was downsized so that it can be mounted on a telephone pole. The wireless terminal (WT, user equipment) was downsized to a volume of approximately two liters. To expand service areas for WIPAS services, we employed an adaptive modulation scheme. We simulated line of sight (LOS) and considered transmission distance of WIPAS. This paper describes the system concepts, specifications, technologies, and estimation of transmission distance of WIPAS
