Abstract

A novel beam combination method for wide-band digital indoor communication systems such as wireless LAN's and wireless ATM's is proposed. Crossed fan beams are used at the base station (BS) and personal stations (PS's). The beam combination method provides better transmission quality than the traditional pencil-beam combination and eliminates complex beam control in the BS. Maximum dispersion distributions in a transmission frequency bandwidth are calculated by a three-dimensional (3-D) indoor propagation delay simulation algorithm. A prototype fan-beam antenna for the PS is fabricated and measured at 20 GHz.
