High datarates can either be achieved by increasing the channel bandwidth or the system modulation complexity or both. As mentioned in Chap. 1 the 802.11ad standard using the 60 GHz band provides large bandwidth that allows for a datarate of 1.76 Gb/s if one channel is used for transmission with BPSK modulation. Increasing the datarate further requires bonding more channels or increasing the modulation complexity.
