In this talk, I explain mechanism for generating massless, partially massless and massive higher spin fields in d-dimensional anti-de Sitter space.I start from massless higher spin fields in (d+1)-dimensional anti-de Sitter space and Kaluza-Klein compactify to d-dimesional anti-de Sitter space on an interval (AdS waveguide).I demonstrate that, to obtain partially massless higher spin fields, boundary conditions at the end of interval must involve spectrum-dependent, equivalently, higher-derivative boundary conditions. If time permits, I also demonstrate how the partially massless Higgs mechanism works from the viewpoint of dual CFT.
