Industries are undergoing an information and communication technology-driven transformation as the world becomes increasingly digitally and globally linked. 5G technology provides a common basis for providing the multiple vertical sectors with a more cost-effective, open, and wide ecosystem solutions. Due to the generally large attainable bandwidths, high frequency technologies have emerged as a promising solution for future wireless communications and attracted great interest in the literature. The millimeter wave (mmWave), i.e., the frequency range 30–300 GHz, would enable the exploitation of tens of gigahertz transmission bands, resulting in a massive channel capacities of even over one Tbps. However, one of the most challenging issues in high-frequency communication connections is the significant channel losses that require highly directional antennas and, in most cases, line-of-sight link between the transmitter and receiver. In this thesis, we study the beamforming design for wideband systems with different bandwidths. The simulation results show that with a larger bandwidth, the power loss increases with the beamforming angle. The loss of power behavior due to beam squinting effect is quite similar over different distances.
