The main advantages of LMDS are as follows [16]: x provides support for high-bandwidth application, x is cost effective, x has very scalable architecture, x network management and maintenance is relatively simple, x a large part of investment is shifted to CPE (operator spends money only if a customer signs up). The main disadvantages of LMDS are the reduced area of coverage of a single cell, impractical usage as a mobile wireless technology (LMDS should be considered only as a stationary system) and weather conditions can reduce transmission distance to 5 km.

However, a basic dial-up connection does not achieve data transmission of satisfying quality. That is why using ISDN networks seem to be a compromise solution: good data transmission rates, almost permanent connection and relatively low prices. There are many different techniques used to access medical resources, such as [1]: x telephone networks (PSTN), x ISDN network, x private (corporate) network LAN/WAN, x leased-line (channel 2 Mb/s), x xDSL lines, x cellular networks (GSM, UMTS), x Bluetooth, UMTS, LMDS, x satellite links.

GSM standard provides several data services. These services include SMS (Short Message Service), fax, paging service, and data transmission. GSM users can utilize data transmission, at rates up to 9600 b/s, to users on POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service), ISDN, Circuit Switched Public Data Networks, and Packet Switched Public Data Networks [7]. A modem is not required between the user and GSM network, because GSM is a digital network. A number of telemedical services can be offered using GSM networks.
