Abstract

HIPERLAN/2 and IEEE 802.11~ are two Wireless LAN (WLAN) standards which operate in the 5GHz band. In order to support broadband multimedia communications, they can provide data rates up to 54 Mbps. In this paper an overview of the two standards is presented together with software simulated physical layer performance results. Furthermore, the differences between the two standards (PDU size, MAC layers etc.}and the effects on throughput and range are discussed.
