Mitigating Lateral Interference: Adaptive Beam Switching for Robust Millimeter-Wave Networks

Putting into practice "pseudo-wire" links in wireless millimeter-wave (mm-wave) networks is challenging due to the significant side lobes of consumer-grade phased antenna arrays. Nodes should steer their beams such that they maximize the signal gain but also minimize interference from lateral directions via both their main lobe and their side lobes. Most… CONTINUE READING
