The work on millimeter wave antennas and propagation relating to wireless local area networks is outlined. The basic arrangement for such systems involves a hub antenna, located in the ceiling and a number of roamable antennas located on desks throughout the room. Signals that are transmitted are subject to considerable multipath interference and this limits the system performance. Optimization of the WLAN performance involves the understanding of propagation effects in rooms and the development of antennas whose characteristics match overall requirements, including cost.
