Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Recently, cellular phone has been rapidly penetrating the population in the developing countries, mainly in urban areas, while on the other hand there are many villages in rural areas where there is no fixed-line phone or cellular reception. We are proposing the mobile wireless IP telephony with mobility as a rural telecommunication system, utilizing FMC (Fixed Mobile Convergence) and combining wireless LAN (IEEE802.11b) and cellular network. In addition, we examined the network configuration with Wireless IP Access System (WIPAS) that uses sub-millimeter spectrum (26GHz) as a backhaul circuit between wireless LAN and cellular network, and conducted its verification experiment in weather conditions of tropical monsoon region, where many of the developing countries are situated. Through this test we verified the viability of mobile wireless IP telephony in rural areas, and we additionally verified its viability in remote rural villages by operating a point-to-point type WIPAS under intense rainfall of over 100 mm/hour.
