Virtual Cellular Networks for 60 GHz Wireless Infrastructure
Paper in proceedings, 2003
This paper gives a broad description of a broadband communication system using the 60 GHz frequency band. We describe the channel and its inherent problems such as interference situations and body shadowing. We introduce the use of virtual cellular networks (VNC) and multiple receiving antennas (MRA) in order to solve these problems resulting in an overlapping cellular architecture. We explain how the diversity of the channel can be used to increase reliability and performance. Finally, we simulate the ideal link performance of a VCN using two receiving antennas for a particular set of OFDM parameters.
