Claim of US Patent No. 10,342,021

1. A method for minimizing interference in a wireless network, the method comprising:determining that a first angle of a first formed beam directed towards a first wireless device meets a first threshold angle relative to a fixed location, wherein an interference is caused to a second wireless device at the fixed location by a lobe of the first formed beam upon the first angle meeting the first threshold angle;
switching an operating mode of the second wireless device from a default mode to an aggregated mode;
determining that the first angle meets a second threshold angle at which the interference is no longer caused to the second wireless device; and
upon the first angle meeting the second threshold angle, switching the operating mode of the second wireless device back to the default mode,
wherein in the aggregated mode, additional resources are scheduled for the second wireless device based in part on the interference.
