In this paper, a new method to model and simulate a wireless communication system based on system on chip design methodology will be presented. The network performance effected by the amount of detail in the simulation model. Hence there is a need to develop suitable abstractions that maintain the accuracy of the simulation while keeping the computational resource requirements low. The integration of communication modelling into the design modelling has been shown by modelling a noisy communication channel in SystemC. The channel supports different modulation techniques such as, amplitude-shift keying, phase-shift keying, quadrature amplitude modulation. It supports the setting of different Signal to noise ratio and different types of interference for Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint platforms based on SystemC design methodology.
