This paper studies the throughput and range of the OFDM based IEEE 802.11ad millimeter-wave WPANs. The cross layer results show that the MIMO and beamforming schemes with frame aggregation and block acknowledgement enhance the throughput and operation range compared to the case of single antenna with reasonable hardware complexity.
