Beamforming (BF) with phased arrays is a critical and natural solution for millimeter-wave (mmWave) wireless communications due to the increased signal propagation attenuation. In this paper, we propose fast and efficient codebook-based BF training to estimate antenna weight vectors (AWVs) for next generation mmWave WLANs/WPANs or the fifth generation (5G) wireless systems with spatial multiplexing (SM). In the proposed mmWave SM systems, the transmit and receive antenna arrays are grouped into… CONTINUE READING
