Title: PARTIAL MULTI-ANTENNA SECTOR LEVEL SWEEP
Abstract:
Certain aspects of the present disclosure provide methods and apparatus for enhancing a beamforming training procedure. For example, according to certain aspects, devices may exchange information regarding the number of beamforming transmit sectors each device plans to use for both partial and full sector sweeps, as well as the number of receive antennas. The devices may also exchange timing information used to synchronize when the devices start to perform the partial and full sector sweeps, after detecting a lost link.
