Because of the short-range characteristics of UWB or 802.15.3 networks (around 10 m), it is highly desirable to have a range extension technology for future wireless personal area networks (WPANs). In the 802.15.3 standard, coverage extension is achieved by creating child or neighbor piconets from a parent piconet. One of the main disadvantages of this approach is that it does not make use of the multi-channel capability provided by the underlying physical layer (e.g. multi-band OFDM) as both… CONTINUE READING
