Consider a system of two millimeter wave transceiver nodes A and B. We assume that each node is equipped with a circular array antenna that has beamforming capability. We are interested in using the beamforming capability to find the best possible directions for transmission and reception such that the communication link between two nodes provides maximal SNR at the receiver. A protocol that in most cases achieves the optimal solution is developed and simulation results are provided to show the effectiveness of the algorithm.
