LMDS is currently a promising emerging technology in broadband fixed wireless communications. The cellular structure, high data rates, and flexibility make it perfect for multimedia, digital television, and interactive services. These high-bandwidth multimedia services received most of the research attention until lately. There has been a clear gap when considering UDP/TCP/IP and other data services over LMDS. We examine the ramifications of using standard TCP/IP data communication over a two-layer LMDS system. We argue that the former emphasis only on multimedia and ATM-based communication over LMDS was a mistake. The most exciting prospect for LMDS should be in the role of enabling Internet and data services together with multimedia. We introduce a basic architecture for two-layer IP-LMDS based on a trial network built between 1996 and 2000
