With the ever-growing demand of modern applications in term of communications bit-rate, wireless networks are facing a bottleneck in the access segments, especially when confronted with their wired counterparts, that are more and more exploiting fiber optics connections up to the end-user link. A number of technologies are emerging in the field of radio communications to bridge this gap. The aim to provide Gbit/s-rate wireless connections with simple technologies in millimeter-wave band (form 60 GHz to 600 GHz and higher). The sessions aims to presents the latest results in terms of technologies (signal generation and detection) and systems (modems) in the field.
