Reference Entry
An encyclopedia entry for broadband wireless access is presented. It is a technology aimed at providing wireless access to data networks, with high data rates. A definition of the term "broadband," according to the 802.16-2004 standard is presented. It states that broadband wireless access is equivalent to broadband wired access, and is thought to be used up to 40 miles away.
