The next generation wireless networks call for Quality of Service (QoS) support. The Effective Capacity (EC) proposed by the authors provides a powerful tool for the design of QoS provisioning mechanisms. In their previous work, they derived a formula for effective capacity of a Rayleigh fading channel with arbitrary Doppler spectrum. However, their paper did not provide simulation results to verify the accuracy of the EC formula derived in their paper. This is due to difficulty in simulating a Rayleigh fading channel with a Doppler spectrum of continuous frequency, required by the EC formula.
