Abstract

Millimeter wave band (mmWave) integrates with a wide variety of signals under manifold communication standards due to its high-capacity feature, which enables mmWave beam sensing to serve a valuable function in discriminating different signals. In this paper, we propose a novel frame structure consisting of variant beam sensing process and data transmission process. In the beam sensing process, multi-power-level beam sensing method is conducted in every direction to discriminate multi-users under multiple standards. The sensing duration varies with the number of directions. Several performance metrics are correspondingly proposed to quantify the beam sensing for multiple mmWave users, such as the probability of correct detection and the false alarm probability. In the second process, the signal with the biggest received signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is given priority to communicate. On this base, sensing-throughput tradeoff is analyzed to balance the time division between two processes for throughput maximization. Finally, numerical evaluations and simulations are conducted to verify the correctness of the proposed methods.
