60 GHz High Data Rate Wireless Communication System

During the last decade, substantial knowledge about the 60 GHz Milli-Meter-Wave (MMW) channel has been accumulated and different architectures have been analyzed to develop new MMW communication systems for commercial applications. Due to the large propagation and penetration losses, 60 GHz WLANs (Wireless Local Area Networks) are primarily intended for use in short-range and single room environments. Moreover, demands for high-speed multimedia data communications, such as a huge data file transmission and real-time video streaming, are markedly increasing. Hence, one of the most promising solutions to achieve a gigabit class wireless link is to use millimeter-waves for the carrier frequency.
