BWA - Computer Definition
Wireless local loop (WLL) technologies supporting broadband performance to individual end users. BWA technologies include both radio frequency (RF) and infrared (IR) solutions. RF-based solutions include Local Multipoint Distribution Service (LMDS), Multichannel Multipoint Distribution Services (MMDS), and Wireless Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX). Free space optics (FSO) systems are wireless optical transmissions using wavelengths in the infrared range. See also broadband, FSO, IR, LMDS, local loop, MMDS, RF, WiMAX, and WLL.
