Wireless In-House Network Studies

Objective

The objectives of WINS were to:

- determine user needs and environment characteristics for wireless in-house networks in the domestic, public industrial and business sectors
- survey and assess existing technologies for wireless communications
- merge user requirements into feasible wireless network scenarios
- identify promising systems
- examine the feasibility of such systems
- recommend implemented systems for further development, and identify standardisation implications.
The wireless in house network studies (WINS) exploratory action addressed the use of wireless communication technologies for in house applications as a means of complementing and enhancing wired networks. Such wireless networks are expected to have a major impact in the home, school, office, factory and public building environments, and in all service areas where there is a need for flexibility, mobility or the frequent reconfiguration of equipment layouts. Wireless networks are also expected to contribute to the establishment layouts. Wireless networks are also expected to contribute to the establishment of a global personal communications network (PCN).

identify standardization implications.

The exploratory action addressed 2 issues: requirements for wireless systems in 4 application areas, and the enabling technologies available, or in prospect, that could meet these requirements. The application areas covered were domestic, public, industrial and business, and the technologies were infrared, radio frequency and microwave.
