  • Patent number: 9801226
    Abstract: Logic may facilitate the establishment and maintenance of a link in a 60 gigahertz band. Logic may determine via out-of-band information that a distance is not likely a reason for failure of a link in the 60 gigahertz band. Logic may determine via out-of-band information that the distance between devices is within a range of the link in the 60 gigahertz band. Logic may determine via out-of-band information that an orientation of one of the devices may be a cause of a poor or failed 60 GHz connection. Logic may display a message to a user related to possible issues with establishing or maintaining a 60 GHz connection. Logic may determine that refining a beamforming directional granularity may improve chances of maintaining a link in the 60 gigahertz band. And logic may synch devices via an out-of-band connection.

  • Publication number: 20170303328
    Abstract: Wireless communication networks may use various techniques, including those that use multiple-access techniques such as multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) techniques. In some embodiments, the use of a MU-MIMO setup frame may give a destination STA a chance to select a best antenna weight vector (AWV) based on previous antenna training. In particular, the use of an AWVgroupID may be used to identify a group of one or more STAs that can be the destination STAs of the MU-MIMO setup frame.
