Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


In 2017, IEEE Std. 802.15.3d-2017 has been completed as the first wireless standard operating at the frequency 252 GHz to 321 GHz. This standard offers switched point-to-point connectivity with data rates of 100 Gbit/s and beyond. Application scenarios include short-range intra-device communication, kiosk downloading, wireless links in data centers, and wireless backhauling/fronthauling. This chapter describes the requirements for the target applications and usage scenarios and provides a summary of the specifics of the physical and medium access layers of IEEE Std. 802.15.3d-2017 including the results from the performance evaluation done during the standardization process.
