Title (EN) SEGMENTED BEAMFORMING
(FR) FORMATION SEGMENTÉE DE FAISCEAU
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A method for beamforming in a communication network includes generating a plurality of beamforming training (BFT) units associated with a beamforming session between a pair of devices, where each of the plurality of BFT units corresponds to a different beamsteering vector, causing a first non-zero subset of the plurality of BFT units to be transmitted during a first timeslot, and causing a second non-zero subset of the plurality of BFT units to be transmitted during a second timeslot, where the first time timeslot and the second timeslot are not contiguous.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de formation de faisceau dans un réseau de communication. Ledit procédé consiste à générer une pluralité d'unités d'apprentissage de formation de faisceau (BFT) associées à une session de formation de faisceau entre une paire de dispositifs, chaque unité de la pluralité d'unités BFT correspondant à un vecteur d'orientation de faisceau différent, à faire en sorte qu'un premier sous-ensemble non nul de la pluralité d'unités BFT soit transmis pendant un premier créneau temporel, et à faire en sorte qu'un second sous-ensemble non nul de la pluralité d'unités BFT soit transmis pendant un second créneau temporel, le premier créneau temporel et le second créneau temporel n'étant pas contigus.
