Channel Estimation Techniques for Millimeter-Wave Communication Systems: Achievements and Challenges

The fifth-generation (5G) of cellular networks and beyond requires massive connectivity, high data rates, and low latency. Millimeter-wave (mmWave) communications is a key 5G enabling technology to meet these requirements thanks to its technical potentials that can be integrated with other 5G enable...
