WLL Explained: Tutorials & Basic Info

Wireless local loop (WLL) goes by a variety of names, including Fixed-Radio Access (FRA), Radio in the Loop (RITL), or fixed-wireless access (FWA). By any name, it describes a technique where wireless communications are used as the final "last mile" link between the person holding the telephone (or sitting at the computer terminal) and the start of the telephone pole or other wired service. There are a number of technologies that can be used to provide this link, including CDMA, TDMA, GSM, UMTS 3G, 4G, PHS, PAS, DECT, and LMDS to name a few. For more information and tutorials on this concept, see one of the links below.
