A cluster-based analysis of outdoor-to-indoor office MIMO measurements at 5.2 GHz
Förlag: Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., Piscataway, NJ 08855-1331, United States
In this paper, we present a cluster based analysis of an outdoor-to-indoor Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) measurement campaign, and extract model parameters for the COST273 channel model. The measurements were performed at 5.2 GHz for 159 measurement locations in an office building. Multipath component (MPC) parameters have been extracted for these positions using a high-resolution algorithm. We analyze the clustering of MPCs, i.e., grouping together of MPCs with similar DOAs, DODs, and delays. We compare cluster identification by visual inspection to automatic identification by the recently proposed algorithm of Czink et al. In the paper we include results on the intercluster properties such as the distribution of the number of clusters and the cluster powers, as well as intracluster properties such as the angle and delay spreads within the clusters. In particular, we extract parameters for the COST 273 channel model, a standardized generic model for MIMO propagation channels. © 2006 IEEE.
