Out-of-Band mmWave Beamforming and Communications to Achieve Low Latency and High Energy Efficiency in 5G Systems

  title={Out-of-Band mmWave Beamforming and Communications to Achieve Low Latency and High Energy Efficiency in 5G Systems},
  author={Morteza Hashemi and Can Emre Koksal and Ness B. Shroff},
We propose a hybrid RF/millimeter wave (mmWave) architecture for 5G cellular systems. Communication in the mmWave band faces significant challenges due to variable channels, intermittent connectivity, and high energy usage. Moreover, speeds for electronic processing of data is of the same order as typical rates for mmWave interface. Therefore, the use of complex algorithms for tracking channel variations and adjusting resources accordingly is practically out-of-reach. To alleviate the… 
Convolutional neural network and Kalman filter-based accurate CSI prediction for hybrid beamforming under a minimized blockage effect in millimeter-wave 5G network

Boon and bane of 60 GHz networks: practical insights into beamforming, interference, and frame level operation
This paper presents the first in-depth beamforming, interference, and frame level protocol analysis of off-the-shelf millimeter wave systems with phased antenna arrays, and shows strong side lobes that challenge the common conception of high spatial reuse in 60 GHz networks.
Design aspects of short-range millimeter-wave networks: A MAC layer perspective
The MAC layer design aspects of short-range millimeter- wave networks are discussed and it is argued for the necessity of new collision-aware hybrid resource allocation frameworks with on-demand control messages, the advantages of a collision notification message, and the potential of multihop communication to provide reliable mmWave connections.
Modeling and Analyzing Millimeter Wave Cellular Systems
A baseline analytical approach based on stochastic geometry that allows the computation of the statistical distributions of the downlink signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) and also the per link data rate, which depends on the SINR as well as the average load is presented.
Millimeter-Wave Cellular Wireless Networks: Potentials and Challenges
Measurements and capacity studies are surveyed to assess mmW technology with a focus on small cell deployments in urban environments and it is shown that mmW systems can offer more than an order of magnitude increase in capacity over current state-of-the-art 4G cellular networks at current cell densities.
Estimating millimeter wave channels using out-of-band measurements
A transform is provided that can be used to relate the spatial correlation matrix derived at one frequency to another much different frequency, and an expression for the excess mean squared error is derived to evaluate the performance experienced by using the transformed correlation in mmWave channel estimation.
Joint Spatial Division and Multiplexing for mm-Wave Channels
A new, “degenerate” version of JSDM that only requires average CSI at the transmitter and thus greatly reduces the computational burden is developed, and evaluations in propagation channels obtained from ray tracing results, as well as in measured outdoor channels, show that this low-complexity version performs surprisingly well in mm-Wave channels.
