Dual Carrier Modulation (DCM) is studied as a potential enhancement to conventional QPSK modulation. Results are obtained for a multi-band orthogonal frequency multiplexing (OFDM) system. DCM not only provides a diversity gain, but also offers coding gain .In this paper DCM is analyzed based on the IEEE 802.11ad standard using a wideband 10-tap fading channel. Results show that DCM achieves a lower PER then conventional QPSK. For a PER threshold of 1 in 10 an SNR gain of approximately 5dB is observed. The introduction of dynamic tone mapping is shown to introduce a further 3dB gain.
