beam switching

beam switching

[′bēm ‚swich·iŋ]
(electronics)
Method of obtaining more accurately the bearing or elevation of an object by comparing the signals received when the beam is in directions differing slightly in bearing or elevation; when these signals are equal, the object lies midway between the beam axes. Also known as lobe switching.

They are suitable for telecommunications, test instrumentation, research and development, and radar front-end applications that may involve general switching, receiver protection, pulse modulation, or antenna beam switching.
The demonstration utilized beam switching (a method of tracking the device, selecting the best antennas, and sending their signals to a targeted location), support for dynamic TDD (the ability to adjust in real time the allocated capacity for downlink and uplink traffic based on network demand), and how the 5G system would react to real-world obstructions such as various types of window panes.
With two independent machining stations that share a single lasing source, beam switching not only contributes to compact machine design, it means different optics are available to suit differing part requirements.
Early VSAT platforms introduced important innovations such as uplink power control, dynamic bandwidth allocation and beam switching.
