This paper proposes two energy-efficient standby mode algorithms in short-range one-to-one 60 GHz millimeter Wave (mmWave) communications. Among the many usage scenarios for mmWave radio, file downloading from kiosk terminals or peer-to-peer sync service with portable terminals are of great interest. For these portable terminals, the power consumption of standby mode as well as connection setup time is important. Comparing the power consumption for a frame transmission with that for a frame reception in short-range one-to-one 60 GHz mmWave, the power consumption for a frame reception may become larger than that for a frame transmission. In this paper, two energy-efficient standby mode algorithms are proposed for one-to-one communications.
