This paper evaluates the potential for spatial reuse and the degree of interference in a dense 60 GHz wireless networking environment. A 60 GHz simulation model is developed to evaluate the performance and extensive simulations are conducted by varying a number of parameters that affects the spatial reuse gain and interference. The results show that there is abundant spatial reuse to exploit in a dense 60 GHz wireless network. However, the results also indicate that there are considerable scenarios where interference is present, for which interference mitigation mechanisms are needed.
