Directional network discovery performance

  title={Directional network discovery performance},
  author={Robert A. Nichols},
  journal={34th IEEE Sarnoff Symposium},
Directional networks provide significant promise for future high-bandwidth communications architectures. There is an increasing need for capacity to support multi-media and other bandwidth-intensive applications while spectrum availability is decreasing. Directional networks allow for high capacity communications by focusing the energy between transmitter and receiver and providing greater frequency reuse. These networks can either be radio frequency (RF) or optical (free-space optical… CONTINUE READING
