60 GHz wireless personal area networks (WPANs) offer multi-Gbps throughput, which will provide for a new wave of high data rate applications. This paper exploits the use of location information to improve the performance and enhance range of 60 GHz multi-user beamforming systems. When the location information is available at the transmitter, the scheduler chooses a set of maximum angularly separated users to share wireless resources simultaneously. If additional feedback of signal-to-interference and noise ratio (SINR) is known, a location-assisted scheduler is employed to increase the system overall performance. Both numerical and simulated results show that significant enhancement can be achieved by the proposed schedulers for 60 GHz WPAN systems.
