    We propose an architecture using the 60 GHz Radio over Fiver along with a novel concept of forming Extended Cells (EC). Since in the indoor environment , the propagation of millimeter wave signals is strongly hindered by walls, people, furniture, etc., a mobile user might experience frequent loss of connection as soon as one movers from one cell to antother. With ECs one can create sufficient overlap areas between cells, thus ensuring a semaless communication environemtn to achieve lesser handovers and call drop. We illustrate the effectivieness of the proposed architecture throught simulation. We continue further to model the mobility of users in the indoor environment to arrive at an expression to find the call blocking probability.
