Abstract
The development of MIMO over-the-air (OTA) test methodology is an ongoing activity in 3GPP RAN4, CTIA and EU COST Action 2100. In this paper, the focus is on the anechoic chamber approach, which uses a uniform circular array of probe antennas to replicate directional channels for the device-under- test at the array center. In particular, we study in simulation the complexity requirements of implementing the WINNER II clustered delay line (CDL) model in RF using off-the-shelf RF components. Our results reveal that a significant reduction in complexity of the CDL model can be achieved, while keeping the change in both ergodic and outage capacities under 10% relative to the full model. This suggests that it is both feasible and cost effective... (More)
