A wireless MAN (Metropolitan Area Network) is a large-scale network where subscriber stations and mobile stations communicate wirelessly with base stations. Subscriber stations are static, while mobile stations are capable of moving freely between coverage areas of base stations. Base stations are linked to one another across even greater distances by wired or microwave wireless connections.
