In order to realize very high throughput wireless local area network (WLAN) systems, which demand multi Gbps capacities/bitrates, the IEEE802.11.TGad (Next generation WLAN standard at 60GHz band) is in the standardization process. To evaluate and select the proposed physical layer modulation and coding schemes in the standardization process, channel models for each specified usage model are required. In this paper, suitable impulse channel models for that purpose are proposed. Propagation measurements are carried out in a living room environment in the 60GHz band. To cover various usage cases, line-of-sight (LOS) and non-line-of-site (NLOS) scenarios and three different signal transmission polarization types are examined, and each channel model's parameters are extracted by statistical analysis. These channel models are useful in designing systems for millimeter-wave wireless communications.
