Implementation of the COST 273 Directional Channel Model in Microcell Scenarios

Ivo Sousa, Maria Paula Queluz, António Rodrigues

Abstract

This paper presents a tutorial on how to implement the COST 273 Directional Channel Model (DCM) for microcell scenarios. Special care has been taken to present all the parameters models and values required by the DCM, being some of them proposed in this work because they were missing in the related literature and are essential. The results and comparison with experimental data of an implementation example are also presented, which prove that this DCM is suitable for wireless systems development, especially those that exploit spatial aspects of radio channels, like for example Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems.
