Local access encompasses requirements of high throughput, transfer performance, flexibility, and ease of user/terminal mobility at a relatively low cost. While some of these targets can often be met satisfactorily with wired infrastructures, it is getting increasingly popular to resort to wireless access (wireless LAN), mainly because of its simpler deployment, continuous coverage, availability of ad hoc connectivity, and user/terminal mobility support. This article outlines the proposal of a broadband quality-oriented WLAN system. The basic system characteristics are described, with details given on a MAC protocol supporting IP and exploiting an OFDM-CDMA technique
