HiperLANShort for high performance radio local area network. Developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, HiperLAN is a set of WLAN communication standards used chiefly in European countries. HiperLAN is similar to the IEEE 802.11 WLAN standards used in the U.S.
There are two types of HiperLAN:
- HiperLAN/1: provides communications at up to 20 Mbps in the 5 GHz band.
- HiperLAN/2: provides communications at up to 54 Mbps in the 5 GHz band.
Like 802.11, HiperLAN serves to ensure the possible interoperability of different manufacturers' wireless communications equipment that operate in this spectrum.
