Abstract.  A spatial circuit switching system based on a beam steering application for W-band wireless links is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The system enables two simultaneous transmissions of a 2.5  Gbit/s data signal over a carrier of 81 GHz, while allowing the receiver to dynamically switch between them. The performance of the system is tested with the real-time measurements of the BER, achieving values below the FEC limit for 7% of overhead and serving to prove the viability of wireless spatial circuit switching in the next generation of wireless access networks.
