Millimeter Wave WPAN: Cross-Layer Modeling and Multi-Hop Architecture
— The 7 GHz of unlicensed spectrum in the 60 GHz band offers the potential for multiGigabit indoor wireless personal area networking (WPAN). With recent advances in the speed of silicon (CMOS and SiGe) processes, low-cost transceiver realizations in this “millimeter (mm) wave” band are within reach. However, mm wave communication links are more fragile than those at lower frequencies (e.g., 2.4 or 5 GHz) because of larger propagation losses and reduced diffraction around obstacles. On the other hand, directional antennas that provide directivity gains and reduction in delay spread are far easier to implement at mm-scale wavelengths. In this paper, we present a cross-layer modeling methodology and a novel multihop medium access control (MAC) architecture for efficient utilization of 60 GHz spectrum, taking into account the preceding physical characteristics. We propose an in-room WPAN architecture in which every link is constrained to be directional, for improved power efficienc...
