This paper proposes a new channel model for millimeter wave (60 GHz) for indoor applications, power amplifier and phase noise models at 60 GHz, an optimal global channelization over 9 GHz bandwidth, common mode signaling to bridge SC (single carrier) and OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplex) camps, and a robust payload as well as a header and preamble design for single carrier for practical applications. The computer simulations have validated these new proposals for WPAN (wireless personal are network) design and significantly contributed a lot to global (IEEE802.15.3c) standardization which will be closed in the near future by issuing system specifications.
