Applicability of GSM/DCS technology to wireless local loop is considered by link level simulations using channel models, which are based on new radio channel measurements in urban and suburban type environments. For comparison purposes, some simulations are also performed using a 'hilly terrain WLL channel' based on GSM HTX model. Antenna diversity in WLL terminal and slow frequency hopping are studied as performance enhancement techniques. Furthermore, the effect of interleaving depth reduction to achieve smaller overall transmission delay is considered. According to the results, standard GSM/DCS system with antenna diversity in WLL terminal is a feasible technology for wireless local loop. Slow frequency hopping also seems to offer quite good performance gain. In addition, the reduction of interleaving depth is possible with negligible performance loss.
