A measurement campaign was carried out to analyse several possible transmitter locations for a 4x4 MIMO system. The receiver modules were moved along indoor routes, and both indoor and outdoor locations were considered for the transmitters. The spatial correlation, path loss and capacity were analysed. Also several options regarding signal combination at system level were studied, assuming two base stations with 2 antennas each. As a result, it is shown that the 2x4 configuration with base station selection and waterfilling scheme provides almost as good performance as a 4x4 full waterfilling scheme when the 2 base stations are spatially separated. This solution may be very interesting to reduce system complexity without significant loss of performance.
