Title: EFFICIENT SEARCH THROUGH AN ANTENNA-PATTERN GROUP
Abstract:
An access point may utilize a fast search through a set of antenna patterns to select antenna patterns for multiple antennas in the access point. During the search, the access point may transmit frames while varying, over the set of antenna patterns, an antenna pattern of a first antenna in the access point that is being processed and setting remaining antennas in the access point that have not been processed to a fixed antenna pattern. Based on feedback received from the electronic device, the access point may select a first antenna pattern for the first antenna. Then, the operations may be repeated, independently, for the remaining antennas, while a subset of the antennas (which includes the first antenna) that have already processed are set to their selected antenna patterns and another subset of the antennas that have not already processed may be set to the fixed antenna pattern.
