Ultra-Low-Latency Millimeter Wave Networking using True-Time-Delay Array Architecture

Future generations of millimeter wave networks (mmW-nets) will operate in the upper mmW frequency band where ≥ 10 GHz bandwidth can be used to meet the ever increasing demands. Their realization will demand addressing a completely new set of challenges including wider bandwidths, larger antenna array sizes, and higher cell density.  These new system requirements demand fundamental rethinking of radio architectures, signal processing, and networking protocols. Major breakthroughs are required in radio front-end architectures to enable wideband mmW-nets, as most commonly adopted phased antenna array (PAA) based radios face many challenges in achieving fast beam acquisition, interference suppression and wideband data communication. This talk will present the potential of true-time-delay (TTD) based array architecture for wideband mmW-nets for low latency initial beam training and data communication.
