Abstract

It is proposed that multiple directional antennas at a base station site can be used in conjunction with the InFLEXionTM protocol for voice and data messaging so as to increase coverage and traffic capacity, thereby reducing system cost. A key aspect of this technique is the coordination of the protocol and beam selection with respect to subscriber units.
