Millimeter wave (mmWave) communication is a promising candidate for future extremely high data rate, wireless networks. The main challenges of mmWave communications are deafness (misalignment between the beams of the transmitter and receiver) and blockage (severe attenuation due to obstacles). Due to deafness, prior to link establishment between a client and its access point, a time consuming alignment/beam training procedure is necessary, whose complexity depends on the operating beamwidth… CONTINUE READING
