In cellular communication systems employing millimeter wave (mmWave) bands for a link, a large amount of training time and network resources will be required to find a serving BS with the best transmit and receive (Tx-Rx) beam pair if downlink control signals are used. In this paper, a tracking technique for OFDM-based cellular communication systems with a mmWave link, where an analog beamforer is used at the mobile station (MS) and a digital beamformer is used at the BS, is proposed using an uplink signal. A technique to select a serving BS with the best beam pair is described using the uplink preamble sequence based on Zadoff-Chu sequence and a metrics which can be used to identify parameters such as beam ID (BID), MS ID (MID), and direction-of-arrival (DoA). The effectiveness of the proposed technique is verified via simulation with the spatial channel model (SCM) for a moving MS in mmWave cellular systems.
