In this paper, we report design and implementation scenarios for a gigabit-capacity and high-data-rate fixed wireless access technology research demonstrator. The all weather survivable system is based on broadband wireless access concept and implementation techniques utilizing RF/microwave/millimeter-wave as well as free-space optical wireless high speed links. The demonstration platform provides broadband last mile access and networking solutions to Internet users in densely populated areas with homes and businesses (e.g., downtown building-centric and inner city- environment) in need of high bandwidth not served with fiber infrastructure. The focus of this investigation is radio link design, access network architecture, and system integration. Hybrid fiber radio and WDM optical wireless solutions are implemented to interface and complement the existing ATM fiber and satellite core networks in support of all wireless infrastructure for Next Generation Internet (NGI).
