In this paper we evaluate the system performance and capacity of single carrier ultra-wideband
(UWB) networks over 60GHz wireless personal area network (WPAN) channel. Symbol error rate is
derived for both single user and multiple access scenario with a general system capacity and
performance evaluation approach based on moment generation function. System outage probability
and network throughput performance are also studied. Based on the current IEEE 802.15.3 WPAN
standard work, different transmission scenarios have been explored and the performances with
RAKE reception has been obtained. The channel model is also based on the recent work of IEEE
802.15 WPAN group. Numerical results are given to illustrate the system performance.
