Abstract—The concept of Orthogonal Vertical Beamforming (OVB) is proposed in this paper to eliminate interference when users remain at the same angle in the horizontal plane but are positioned at different distances. This orthogonal property helps systems avoid interference in the vertical direction of the mainbeam. A fully constructed prototype tested in a real indoor environment validates the proposed concept, revealing that the proposed OVB provides higher Signal Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR) and Packet Error Rate (PER) in the vertical plane than conventional vertical beamforming and Orthogonal Beamforming.
