The author identifies the characteristics of the European wireless LAN standard, HIPERLAN, which impact on its range. The noise performance required of each receiver class is then assessed. It is suggested that receiver sensitivity can be deliberately limited, reducing observed delay spread. This technique could allow unequalised HIPERLAN receivers to challenge directed infra-red in short range, low cost applications.
