Abstract

Wireless systems represent a good alternative solution to wired one for delivering broadband services, that could be the future challenge for the modern telecommunication era. In fact wireless systems could be implemented in areas with cost impairment or where physical wiring is limited by social or architectural impairments. Obviously the standardization process could be a good opportunity for creating open systems and for reducing the costs of the wireless equipment. Therefore, the reuse of standards already defined for other delivering systems could also contribute in reducing the costs of the wireless equipment. In this paper a brief description of the activities in different standard bodies is included.
