This paper presents the wireless intelligent ATM (WIATM) network, designed to provide wireless broadband integrated services. The WIATM network takes advantage of the ATM-cell relay paradigm for integrated services through a radio link with quality of service (QoS) guarantee. The design of the WIATM network architecture is an independent wireless network, which is consistent with the inherent cellular/PCS network architecture, as a wireless customer premises equipment/network (CPE/CPN) to access the ATM transport network in the B-ISDN infrastructure. An independent network architecture design separates the wireless access network from the ATM backbone network; this provides flexibility for wireless resource management with low rate source codecs with minimal tolerable QoS considered to increase the spectral efficiency, and mobility support by taking advantage of the functionalities of the IS-41 circuit-switching handoff procedures. The protocol design of the air interface is to meet the QoS requirements of wireless B-ISDN services and to be compatible with that of B-ISDN UNI. A hybrid concatenated error control scheme distributed through the protocol layers is used to target individual QoS requirements of different services. The convolutional coding and interleaving in the wireless physical layer protocol are used to guarantee QoS of voice services. A concatenated coding with additional 36 bit BCH code in the wireless ATM layer, which replaces the VCI/VPI of the ATM header field, improves the QoS up to the requirement of video services. The VCI/VPI field in WIATM is an overlapped routing information routing with the address control by radio port controller, and is thus not needed in the wireless ATM layer protocol. The retransmission scheme for data service only is added in the wireless data link layer, which is on top of wireless AAL, to meet its QoS requirement. Examples of signaling flows for call registration, call setup, and supporting handoff are shown in the design of the wireless network layer protocol. The AIN (advance intelligent network) signaling functionalities are considered for multimedia service control in the access network and interconnection to the ATM network. A parent-child creative basic call state model (BCSM) for wireless integrated services is introduced in both call origination and termination
