  • Current cellular spectrum at below 3 GHz bands is experiencing severe shortage and cannot keep up with the dramatic proliferation of mobile traffic in the near future, requiring the search for innovative solutions to enable the 5G era. mmWave communications, with a possible gigabit-per-second data rate, have attracted great attention as a candidate for 5G broadband cellular communication networks. However, a complete characterization of mmWave links for 5G wireless networks still remains… CONTINUE READING
