Sixty GHz radio is a promising technology due to its potential to provide multi-Gbps based data rate. It is capable to support emerging wireless multimedia applications like uncompressed high definition video streaming. However, due to the stringent link budget, 60GHz communication is very fragile to the Co-Channel Interference (CCI). An undesired CCI may easily compromise the quality of the 60 GHz system. For this reason, an interference mitigation mechanism has to be delicately designed to ensure reliable communications in 60 GHz systems. Interference issues, especially for Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs), have been investigated in many earlier works.
