Definition Edit

The Broadband Radio Service (BRS), formerly known as the Multipoint Distribution Service (MDS)/Multichannel Multipoint Distribution Service (MMDS), is a flexible use service that can be used to accommodate a variety of fixed, portable, and mobile services. In the past, it was generally used for the transmission of data and video programming to subscribers using high-powered systems, also known as wireless cable. However, over the years, the uses have evolved to include digital two-way systems capable of providing high-speed, high-capacity broadband service, including two-way Internet service via cellularized communication systems. Such services provide consumers integrated access to voice, high-speed data, video-on-demand, and interactive delivery services from a wireless device.
