The Personal Access Communications System (PACS) supports wireline quality voice, voiceband data, digital data, and messaging services and is based on a low-power, low-complexity design. Operating environments for PACS include indoor and outdoor; fixed, low mobility, and vehicular mobility; and private and public access. PACS is a microcellular system providing high frequency reuse efficiency and thus is capable of supporting high traffic density. These attributes make PACS ideal for providing fixed wireless local loop and mobile services in moderate to densely populated areas, including developing countries. PACS mobile and fixed wireless local loop service can be offered by interfacing PACS with advanced intelligent network/ISDN switches, any traditional wireline switches, or with cellular/personal communications system mobile switching centers. The PACS air interface has been standardized by the American National Standards Institute
