Characterization of a vector network analyzer based millimeter-wave channel sounder
As the world moves into 5G communications systems, many cellular networks will extend their reach past sub 6GHz bands into millimeter wave (mmWave) bands. The mmWave frequencies provide a greater bandwidth to supply the higher data rate requirements for 5G networks. One step to meet the 5G network development to make this technology a reality is reliable mmWave channel models. These channel models are developed through the direct measurement of mmWave propagation channels. To provide reliable channel models at mmWave frequencies, a comprehensive characterization of the performance and uncertainty ...
