Abstract

With its abundant bandwidth and worldwide availability, the 60 GHz band has been considered as a promising solution to provide multi-Gbps wireless transmission. Different standard bodies and industrial interest groups start various projects to develop technologies in the 60 GHz band for applications such as high-definition (HD) and fast file transfer. However, until now very little efforts are made to ensure interference-free coexistence between these technologies. In this paper, we investigate the interference problem in the 60 GHz band. The ECMA-387 standard is used as a study case to illustrate how some simple techniques can mitigate the interference among heterogenous devices in the 60 GHz band. We conduct both mathematical analysis and simulations to demonstrate the performance of these simple techniques and identify some problems for future improvements.
