802.15.3e-2017 - IEEE Approved Draft Standard for Information Technology-- Local and Metropolitan Area Networks-- Specific Requirements-- Part 15.3: Wireless Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications for High Rate Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPAN) Amendment: High-Rate Close Proximity Point-to-Point Communications
Description: This amendment defines an alternative physical layer (PHY) and a modified medium access control (MAC) layer. Two PHY modes have been defined that enable data rates up to 100 Gb/s using the 60 GHz band. MIMO and aggregation methods have been defined to increase the maximum achievable communication speeds. Stack acknowledgment has been defined to improve the medium access control (MAC) efficiency when used in a P2P (point-to-point) topology between two devices.
