Point to Multipoint Wireless (PMP) is a method of connecting multiple locations with ethernet when wires cannot be deployed typically due the substantial cost of ADSL/fibre or where terrain does not allow for cable to be dug into the ground. PMP could be used to connect multiple buildings in a school or business park, provide backhaul for multiple CCTV cameras or access for houses or businesses in an ISP network.
