The new wireless standard is meant to bring internet connectivity to large areas which are less densely populated that did not have previous coverage. The WRAN-standard will be capable of delivering up to 22Mbps without interfering with existing TV broadcast stations. The network is said to function with a series of base stations like current wireless networks, the customer will only require a small box installed in their house for internet access.
