The public's desire for mobile communications and computing, as evidenced by the popularity of cellular phones and laptop computers combined with the explosive demand for Internet access suggest a very promising future for wireless data services. The key to realizing this potential is the development and deployment of high-performance radio systems. In this article we describe a basic service concept, advanced cellular Internet service (ACIS), and the technologies for achieving reliable high-speed transmission to wide-area mobile and portable cellular subscribers with very high spectrum efficiency. Such a wireless service, optimized to meet the needs of a client-server model for information retrieval and Web browsing, and combined with evolutionary enhancements in second-generation technologies, can provide an attractive option for third-generation systems. The radio link design combines OFDM with transmit and receive antenna diversity and Reed-Solomon coding to overcome the link budget and dispersive fading limitations of the cellular mobile radio environment. For access, a dynamic packet assignment algorithm is proposed which combines rapid interference measurements, priority ordering, and a staggered frame assignment schedule to provide spectrum efficiencies of two-to-four times existing approaches
