One of the challenges of modern communications is finding available spectrum. One of the newer Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) bands is centered at 60 GHz. The 60 GHz band is notable for its short reach due to the size of the wavelength and oxygen absorption. The short reach can be mitigated by the use of antenna arrays which both lengthen and focus the beam. One of the potential applications of devices in the 60 GHz band is transmission from the curb to the home. However, foliage from trees can block the signal. This talk looks at potential ways to have low-maintenance communication to the home in the challenging 60 GHz band.
