We demonstrate a handover scheme for supporting high end-user mobility in a 60 GHz broadband picocellular Radio-over-Fiber network. The proposed scheme relies on a novel Moving Extended Cell (MEC) concept which is based on user-centric virtual groups of adjacent cells that transmit the same data content to the user. The MEC concept utilizes a mechanism for restructuring the virtual multi-cell area according to the user’s mobility pattern, so that a virtual antenna group moves together with the… CONTINUE READING
