Measurement Analysis of NLOS Indoor MIMO Channels

In this paper, we present results from measurements conducted by the University of Bristol.We study the channel characteristics of Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) indoor channel at 5.2GHz. Our investigation shows that the envelope of the channel for non-line-of-sight (NLOS) indoorsituations is approximately Rayleigh distributed and consequently we focus on a statistical descriptionof the first and second order moments of the narrowband MIMO channel. Furthermore, it is shown thatfor NLOS indoor scenarios, the MIMO channel covariance matrix can be well modeled by a Kroneckerproduct of the covariance matrices describing the correlation at the transmitter and the receiver siderespectively. A statistical narrowband model for the NLOS indoor MIMO channel based on thiscovariance structure is presented along with some simulation results.
