With the advent of opening up 60 GHz Radio with 5 GHz of available spectrum, many bandwidth-hungry applications can be supported. The immediate concern, however, is the constraint on the line-of-sight transmission as well as the short transmission range of signals. As a result, in an indoor network, a mobile user might experience frequent breaks or losses of connection when one moves from one cell to another. To mitigate this problem, the Extended Cell (EC) architecture is proposed. In this paper, a dynamic Extended Cell formation algorithm is proposed based on the actual floor plan and the traffic situation under the network. Moreover, by applying this dynamic EC formation algorithm, we show that the call blocking probability is reduced. The dynamic EC formation also eases the deployment and maintenance cost due to its adaptability to the changing environment.
