Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,806

1. A method of wireless communication at a user equipment (UE) capable of millimeter wave (mmW) communication with a serving base station, comprising:iteratively performing, until a predetermined number of synchronization cycles is reached, a process comprising:
selecting one from a plurality of Transmit (Tx)-Receive (Rx) beam pairs between the UE and the serving base station based at least in part on a scheduling opportunity value of each Tx-Rx beam pair of the plurality of Tx-Tx beam pairs that has not been measured for a current synchronization period; and
measuring a strength of the selected Tx-Rx beam pair between the UE and the serving base station; and
determining a new serving Tx-Rx beam pair between the UE and the serving base station based on cumulative strengths of the plurality of Tx-Rx beam pairs.
