Abstract

Millimeter wave (mmWave) communication is a key technology for the fifth generation (5G) wireless communications, especially the 60 GHz bands for short-range indoor communications. Though there have been many channel measurements at 60 GHz bands, few of them concern about antenna effects on the propagation channel characteristics, such as the antenna height and directivity effects. In this paper, we conduct extensive 60 GHz indoor channel measurements. Different antenna height and directivity configurations are utilized, and the effects on the propagation channel characteristics are investigated, especially the average power delay profile (APDP), K-factor, root mean square (RMS) delay spread (DS), and RMS angle spread (AS). The results will be valuable for the design of 5G mmWave communication systems.
