Millimeter wave (mmW) communication systems have the potential to increase data rates with low-latency, highly directional communication links. Due to the geometric nature of the propagation, mmW signals can also be used for accurate positioning. This paper explores the trade-off between communication rate and positioning quality in mmW systems. We show how rate and positioning quality interact as a function of bandwidth, number of antennas, and receiver location.
