Abstract

This paper presents 28 GHz wideband propagation channel characteristics for millimeter wave (mmWave) urban cellular communication systems. The mmWave spectrum is considered as a key-enabling feature of 5G cellular communication systems to provide an enormous capacity increment; however, mmWave channel models are lacking today. The paper compares measurements conducted with a spherical scanning 28 GHz channel sounder system in the urban street-canyon environments of Daejeon, Korea and NYU campus, Manhattan, with ray-tracing simulations made for the same areas. Since such scanning measurements are very costly and time-intensive, only a relatively small number of channel samples can be obtained. The measurements are thus used to quantify the accuracy of a ray-tracer; the ray-tracer is subsequently used to obtain a large number of channel samples to fill gaps in the measurements. A set of mmWave radio propagation parameters is presented based on both the measurement results and ray-tracing, and the corresponding channel models following the 3GPP spatial channel model (SCM) methodology are also described.
