The paper presents a broadband wireless access system for wired and wireless LANs. The system supports the provision of Internet access and of multimedia services of moderate bandwidth requirements (such as the reception of short audio and video clips) with a guaranteed minimum throughput. Design issues, as well as a prototype implementation, are discussed. The prototype has served as a testbed for conducting performance measurements and the paper reports on relevant results. Details on the prototype's operational status and on user feedback are included together with a vision for future exploitation and extensions.
