Abstract

Increasing demand on the broadband wireless communication over Gigabits has focused renewed attention on 60 GHz millimeter wave. We developed a novel Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) Gigabit WLAN System on 60 GHz millimeter wave. The proposed system employed wide angle beams antenna overcomes the usability of the conventional system, covers larger areas. Maximum transmission rate was designed to be 1.2 Gigabit/sec. Orthogonal frequency division multiplex (OFDM) using 1024 points FFT, and convolutional code were implemented with PHY layer of the WLAN equipments. Superframe for multiple beams and frame aggregation for high throughput were designed for MAC layer. All control channels for downlink such as broadcast, frame control and access feedback were aggregated to reduce overhead in addition to aggregation of data frame. Maximum improvement of throughput due to control channel aggregation was evaluated to be 200 % compared with individual transmission. Evaluated throughput using proposed frame aggregation was confirmed to be more than 852 Mbit/sec in the case of aggregation size of 16 × 1500byte.
