New ultra high data rate systems in the 60 GHz band, especially those targeting high definition video indoor transmission, have a strong requirement for Quality of Service to prevent link outage, and this has to be performed at the MAC level. This paper describes a new simulation platform for these ultra high data rate wireless systems. This new tool models the complete wireless system, including a ray tracing based channel model, smart antennas model, and a physical layer model suitable for MB-OFDM and Single Carrier basebands. In addition, it includes the modeling of RF front-end properties and a MAC layer with beamforming capability for Quality of Service. In this paper we also highlight one use case of this simulation tool as a mean to compare the performance impact of different antenna arrays in a high definition video streaming application.
