Because the high frequency band has a very large spectral bandwidth, it is a promising candidate band for the next generation (5G) mobile communication systems.High frequency band also has strong propagation loss, quasi-optical characteristics and other characteristics.In order to fully utilize, select and evaluate the available high frequency band, it is necessary to adequately measure and research on the high frequency channel.Currently there are mainly two kinds of sounders, customized broadband and vector network analyzer based, are used for high frequency channel measurement.The paper reviews the high frequency channel measurement campaigns currently undertaken, including the antenna configuration, scenarios, focused parameters and the corresponding measurement equipments.Finally, several high frequency band channel models newly proposed, e.g.METIS, MiWEBA, mmMAGIC, 5GCM and 3GPP-HF, are summarized and pointing out the key features and application scope of the existing model, as well as the direction on channel measurement and modeling to be strengthened.
