This article explains the important features of IEEE 802.15.3c, the first wireless standard from IEEE in the 60-GHz (millimeter wave) band and its development. The standard provides three PHY modes for specific market segments, with mandatory data rates exceeding 1 Gb/s. During the span of the standard development, new contributions to wireless communication technology were also made, including a new channel model, a codebook-based beamforming scheme, and a low-latency aggregation method.
