BACKGROUND

Increasingly, carriers are looking to wireless local-area network technologies to
provide broadband data services in public areas. Yet WLAN (and personal-
area networks) will never have the coverage of broader area networks such
as cellular systems. One solution is a hybrid approach, with WPAN and WLAN
technology serving hot-spot areas and cellular data serving the wide area.

The intent of this meeting is to examine how such hybrid solutions will
evolve and what the technical implications are for device vendors, software
vendors and operators.

Proposed topics include:

In addition, we will be following up on ongoing PCCA efforts, including
wireless extensions to NDIS, sending AT commands to wireless modems via
IP protocols and our ongoing wireless interoperability workshops.
