For wireless broadband systems to succeed as a major communication solution in the 21/sup st/ century, they must be the primary communication solution in the bandwidth range of 100 Mb/s and higher. This bandwidth range is not effectively served by copper or fiber optic networks. Key technical characteristics of a primary communication network are that it be reliable, maintainable, generally accessible, easy to deploy, cost effective, etc. This paper addresses a solution for dense deployment, which is related to the key issue of accessibility. Common questions in wireless networks are "can the customer be reached?" and "will the performance be adequate?" Technical issues are system gain versus distance and interference control for dense deployment. This paper provides in-depth analysis of interference control by studying the impact of antenna patterns, different transmit power control schemes, frequency assignment and polarization. In conclusion, consecutive point networks should be able to provide broadband communication service to any medium to large buildings in any city.
