Wireless ATM provides a framework for next-generation wireless communication networks supporting QoS based multimedia services. A proof-of-concept prototype of a Wireless ATM network, termed WATMnet, has been developed at NEC USA C&C Research Labs in Princeton, NJ. In this paper, we discuss the implementation of radio access protocol layers in WATMnet. We also present results from an experimental evaluation of the various protocol layers and their effect on higher layer performance.
