Boon and Bane of 60 GHz Networks: Practical Insights into Beamforming, Interference, and Frame Level Operation
MetadataShow full item record
The performance of current consumer-grade devices for 60 GHz wireless networks is limited. While such networks promise both high data rates and uncomplicated spatial reuse, we find that commercially available devices based on the WiHD and WiGig standards may suffer from their cost-effective design. Very similar mechanisms are used in upcoming devices based on the IEEE 802.11ad standard.
