HIPERLAN

(HIgh PERformance Radio LAN) A wireless LAN protocol developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) that is similar in function to Wi-Fi in the U.S. HIPERLAN/1 and HIPERLAN/2 offer 20 and 54 Mbps data rates respectively in the 5 GHz band. Unlike 802.11a, HIPERLAN provides quality of service (QoS), which lets critical traffic be prioritized.

Faster HIPERLANs
HIPERACCESS (High Performance Radio Access) and HIPERMAN (High Performance Radio MAN) are designed for broadband speeds and greater ranges than HIPERLAN/2. HIPERACCESS provides up to 100 Mbps in the 40.5-43.5 GHz range, and HIPERMAN is designed for wireless metropolitan area networks (MANs) in the 2 GHz and 11 GHz bands. See wireless LAN and ISM band.

11a and HYPERLAN 2 -- Form factor of 10 mm x 14 mm x 3 mm -- Efficiency of 80 percent peak and 50 percent minimum across all bands -- Mounts directly to groundplanes -- Assembled onto printed circuit boards using standard surface mount technologies with no cables or connectors required
The delivery network included an optical fibre core spanning 400 kilometres, enabling access to domestic and business dwellings, and a Hyperlan wireless network, mainly for the 105 Communes not covered by any broadband infrastructure.
A separate service for Local Area Network access, called HyperLAN ADSL, which provides access for up to 10 users, is available for as little as $179.
Conversely, the same approach may be used for high-speed products that require localized power reductions like ADSL, VDSL or Hyperlan applications.
