Title: FAST MILLIMETER-WAVE CELL ACQUISITION
Abstract:
The disclosure relates to technology for assisting a wireless a communication device to acquire access to a millimeter-wave access point (mmW AP). In some embodiments, an angular direction from a mobile wireless communication device to the mmW AP is determined. In some embodiments, the mobile wireless communication device receives information from a wireless network that helps the mobile wireless communication device determine the angular direction. In some embodiments, the signals between wireless network and mobile wireless communication device are below 6 GHz. In some embodiments, the wireless network provides the mobile wireless communication device with the angular direction. Therefore, the mobile wireless communication device is able to configure an antenna to receive and/or transmit a beam in a direction of the mmW AP. The mobile wireless communication may do so during a process of gaining access to the mmW AP.
