The large contiguous bandwidths available in the mm-wave frequency bands have recently started to gain significant attention due to the growing belief that it can alleviate the spectrum shortage at lower frequencies and meet the increasing high data rate demands. While some commercially available mm-wave transceivers in the 60 GHz and 70 GHz bands have been(More)
Future 5G cellular networks are expected to exploit the abundant spectrum resources of the millimeter-wave (mm-wave) bands to satisfy demand for multi-Gbps mobile links anticipated by exponential data traffic growth. However, given the directional nature of mm-wave links, the feasibility of mm-wave mobile networks is critically dependent on efficient(More)
In recent years, novel spectrum access schemes have increased the need to further explore and exploit radio propagation dynamics. One proposed approach is to use spectrum sensing nodes for propagation environment estimation, and particularly to allow shadowing field extraction. In general there is a tendency to develop techniques that allow the automated(More)
In the recent years there has been an effort for the wireless systems to become more efficient in terms of power consumption and coverage planning. One aspect of this effort was the proposal of using spatial estimation approaches, that exploit the spatial correlation of the shadowing and received power, to improve propagation prediction. In this(More)
