Abstract

The IEEE 802.11ad task group has published its first draft to cope with the characteristics in 60 GHz millimeter-wave (mmWave) wireless communications. In this paper, three different 2×2 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) techniques are considered to enhance the performance of 60 GHz wireless personal networks (WPANs). Packet Error Rate (PER) and link throughput performance are simulated under different channel conditions. In addition, the system throughput over operation range is presented in the paper. Results show that significant enhancements in both coverage and capacity can be achieved by employing space-time block codes (STBC), spatial multiplexing (SM) and three different configurations of beamforming.
