Abstract
The dense multipath components (DMC) represent the part of the radio channel that cannot be characterized by a superposition of distinct plane waves, i.e., the specular components (SC). In this letter, the propagation characteristics of the DMC are analyzed in indoor environments from two perspectives. First, the proportion of DMC in the total power is studied as a function of the distance between the transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX). Second, the characteristics of the DMC and SC are compared in angular and delay domains. The measurement results show that the amount of DMC in the total power increases as the TX-RX distance increases in both line-of-sight (LOS) and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) scenarios. In addition, it is shown that the... (More)
