Due to spectrum shortage in the conventional microwave bands, millimeter wave (mmWave) bands have been attracting great attention as an additional spectrum band for 5G cellular networks. In this paper, we show the feasibility of using a mmWave-based small cell with directional antennas. We investigate the effect of the number of antennas, nant, on the capacity and coverage probability, and propose an antenna clustering scheme (ACS) to utilize the antennas more efficiently. For a given nant, we… CONTINUE READING
