There is an increasing interest in 60 GHz millimeter-Wave (mmWave) communication technologies for multi-Gigabit Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPAN), aiming to support broadband multimedia applications. Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) is an emerging killer application which requires high data rate and stringent Quality of Services (QoS) in terms of delay and packet loss. In this paper, the authors propose a method to efficiently support high definition video flows in mmWave-based WPAN with QoS guarantee, considering the characteristics of both the IPTV traffic and the mmWave communication technology.
