Physical layer simulation results for IEEE 802.15.3c with different channel models
Institut für Nachrichtentechnik, Technische Universität Braunschweig, Braunschweig, Germany
Abstract. This paper investigates the performance of the 60 GHz IEEE 802.15.3c physical layer (PHY) specification in terms of bit error rate (BER) against signal to noise ratio. Two PHY modes of the standard have been implemented and simulated, i.e., Single Carrier and High Speed Interface. The first mode uses single carrier (SC) block transmission and the second mode uses orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). One of the main issues in the new 60 GHz standards is multipath propagation, which plays an important role in the link quality. Thus, we have tested the PHY with the IEEE standard channel model, ray tracing simulations and real 60 GHz measurements.
