We propose a cost effective deployment of personal communications services (PCS) over hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC) CATV networks. Our proposal utilizes the emerging IEEE 802.14 network architecture and the medium access control (MAC) protocol. This paper presents the proposed network architecture and addresses some PCS mobility issues such handoff (HO), and location registration and update
