    Abdullah, N, Goulianos, A, Barratt, TH, Freire, AL, Berraki, D, Armour, S, Nix, A & Beach, M, 2015, ‘Path-Loss and Throughput Prediction of IEEE 802.11ad Systems’. in: Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC Spring), 2015 IEEE 81st., pp. 1-5


    This paper presents a path-loss prediction analysis and a performance evaluation of the 60GHz IEEE 802.11ad standard. Received signal strength measurements were performed in indoor locations and the decay coefficients were estimated over a number of measured routes. Furthermore, real world maps were incorporated into a 3-D mm wave ray- tracing tool for the purpose of employing realistic channel matrices into an 802.11ad bit level simulator. Finally, performance metrics for various MCS modes are presented and analyzed for both Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and Single Carrier (SC) transmissions.
