The phenomenal growth in cellular telephony over the past several years has demonstrated the value people place on mobile voice communications. The goal of next generation wireless systems is to enable mobile users to access, manipulate and distribute multimedia content anywhere anytime. New mobile and wireless services will include Internet access to interactive multimedia, video conferencing and imaging as well as traditional services such as voice, email and web access. As the demand for mobile multimedia services grows, wireless extensions to existing broadband and Internet technologies will be required to support the seamless deliver of voice, video and data to mobile terminals with high quality.
