The extension of broadband services to the wireless environment is being driven mainly by the proliferation of multimedia portable computers, personal digital assistants, and personal information assistants. Although there are various competing technologies that may provide these services, such as 3G cellular networks and WLAN, wireless ATM has the advantage of offering end-to-end multimedia capabilities with guaranteed quality of service (QoS). The wireless medium has several unique properties which make the design of WATM networks more challenging than the wired one. The most important challenge is the MAC protocol and the Scheduling algorithms that is used to traffic regulation based on traffic characteristics.
