A Review of Millimeter Wave Communication for 5G
MetadataShow full item record
The millimeter wave (mmWave) bands give new facilities with tremendous amount of spectrum to fifth generation (5G) mobile communication network to supply mobile data demand, which is expanding out of control. Essential differences are considered between conventional systems and mmWave communications, regarding directivity, sensitivity to blockage and high propagation loss. mmWave brings various challenges in communication on some issues such as anti-blocking, interference management, spatial reuse, dynamic control and system design for fully utilizing. In this study, we surveyed on solutions and standards for these challenges and we proposed design principles in architecture and protocols for mmWave communications. And previous studies in the literature on whether the millimeter wave band can be tested in small cell access in 5G, cellular access in 5G and wireless backhaul in 5G or not have been investigated. Also, we described prospective using areas of mmWave in 5G.
