dc.description.abstractIn this thesis we present modifications made to the popular network simulation environment ns-3 to provide accurate simulation of IEEE 802.11ad Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) in the 60 GHz band. There is a need for such a framework as it allows research into how a directional, high performance wireless link affects various parts of the networking stack and Medium Access Control (MAC) design. The work contained herein describes changes made to the existing WLAN MAC and Physical Layer (PHY) model in ns-3 to support antenna directionality and multi-Gbps throughput. The resulting model is then analysed and found to accurately match optimal theoretical values in a number oftest scenarios. The result of this work is a simulation model capable of emulating IEEE 802.11ad WLANs with correct MAC and PHY representations.
