Channel Sounding System for MM-Wave Bands and Characterization of Indoor Propagation at 28GHz

Channel Sounding System for MM-Wave Bands and Characterization of Indoor Propagation at 28GHz The aim of this work is to present a vector network analyzer based channel sounding system capable of performing measurements in the range from 2 to 50 GHz. Further, this paper describes an indoor measurement campaign performed at 26–30 GHz. The sounding system is capable of receiving two channels and transmitting one. Using this feature a channel measurement has been performed using both a directional horn antenna and a virtual uniform circular array (UCA) at the same time. This allows for comparative studies of measured channels with two different antennas in a simultaneous way. The measurement has been conducted with 42 measurement positions distributed along a 10 m long path through an indoor laboratory environment. The transmitter was positioned such that measurements were conducted both in line-of-sight and non-line-of-sight scenarios. The measurements showed good agreement between the measurement data collected with the horn antenna and the data collected with the UCA. The propagation environment was found to be sparse both in delay and angular domain for the given scenario. Based on the performed measurement campaign together with validation measurements of the system stability, it is found that the system works as expected. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Wireless Information Networks Springer Journals

Abstract

The aim of this work is to present a vector network analyzer based channel sounding system capable of performing measurements in the range from 2 to 50 GHz. Further, this paper describes an indoor measurement campaign performed at 26–30 GHz. The sounding system is capable of receiving two channels and transmitting one. Using this feature a channel measurement has been performed using both a directional horn antenna and a virtual uniform circular array (UCA) at the same time. This allows for comparative studies of measured channels with two different antennas in a simultaneous way. The measurement has been conducted with 42 measurement positions distributed along a 10 m long path through an indoor laboratory environment. The transmitter was positioned such that measurements were conducted both in line-of-sight and non-line-of-sight scenarios. The measurements showed good agreement between the measurement data collected with the horn antenna and the data collected with the UCA. The propagation environment was found to be sparse both in delay and angular domain for the given scenario. Based on the performed measurement campaign together with validation measurements of the system stability, it is found that the system works as expected.
