A novel stochastic millimeter wave indoor radio channel model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper introduces a model for the stochastic millimeter-wave indoor radio channel. This model relates the stochastic properties of the radio channel to the underlying geometry of the investigated environment. The geometric simplicity of the millimeter-wave channel allows examining fundamental deterministic properties of the wave propagation behavior in environments of predefined randomness, i.e., environments whose dimensions and properties are described by various probability distributions. The influence of the randomness on the radio channel is studied for the down-link of a wireless local area network at 60 GHz. Joint amplitudes of path lengths, angles of departure, and amplitudes, as well as spatial power densities, average power of the direct paths, and k factors are investigated.
