60 GHz Wireless Communication has attracted increasing attention with its distinct advantages such as abundant bandwidth, unlicensed and so on. For overcoming the large path loss of 60 GHz spectrum, devices generally make use of antenna array to get high directivity beam, enhance transmit and receive antenna gain. As a result how to implement fast beam-search is an inevitable challenge for 60 GHz Wireless Communication. Based on IEEE 802.15.3C criteria and channel model(including application environments), this chapter aims to propose a novel beam-search strategy by taking into account the characteristics of 60 GHz Wireless Communication, such as large path loss, strong directional beam and correlation among beam-search of devices. Moreover this strategy was proved by the simulation that it can effectively reduce the range of beam-search, improve efficiency.
