High directivity of 60 GHz links introduces new link training and adaptation challenges due to both client and environmental mobility. In this paper, we design, implement and evaluate <b>MOCA</b>, a protocol for <b>M</b>obility resilience and <b>O</b>verhead <b>C</b>onstrained <b>A</b>daptation for directional 60 GHz links. Since mobility-induced link(More)
Developing energy consumption models for smart buildings is important for studying demand response, home energy management, and distribution network simulation. In this work, we develop parsimonious Markovian models of smart buildings for different periods in a day for predicting electricity consumption. To develop these models, we collect two data sets(More)
We introduce X60, the first SDR-based testbed for 60 GHz WLANs, featuring fully programmable MAC/PHY/Network layers, multi-Gbps rates, and a user-configurable 12-element phased antenna array. These features provide us with an unprecedented opportunity to revisit the most important aspects of 60 GHz signal propagation and obtain new insights on performance(More)
In this paper, we use recently developed error estimation coding (EEC) to devise an efficient relaying framework for a multi-relay network. EEC utilizes an added redundancy to form an estimate of the bit-error rate (BER) of data received over a noisy channel. Utilizing the BER estimate, we propose a relaying selection strategy that uses the BER estimate at(More)
