In present scenario 802.11n is one of the fastest standards which is widely popular. It provides a theoretical maximum of 450 Megabits per second (Mbps), with a typical throughput of 100Mbps. As the authors know, there is high demand for higher speed due to an increasing of High Definition (HD) video on smart phone usage and home entertainment. As 802.11n is not able to provide the required speed needed for these uses, thus there is need for technologies which can meet the requirement. IEEE 802.11ad is one of such standards which meet the requirement needed for the above. IEEE 802.11ad standard operates at 60 GHz frequency, promise to deliver from 1 to 7 Gbps.
