Abstract
The COST 2100 channel model is a geometry based stochastic channel model (GSCM) for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) simulations. This paper presents parameterization and validation of the channel model for peer-to-peer communication in the 300 MHz band. Measurements were carried out in outdoor environments for both line-of-sight (LOS) and non line-of-sight (NLOS) scenarios. The COST 2100 channel model is characterized and parameterized based on clusters. The KpowerMeans algorithm and a Kalman filter are used for identifying and tracking clusters from measurements. General issues regarding the parameterization for the channel model are analyzed in detail. A full set of single-link parameters for the channel model is extracted from the... (More)
The COST 2100 channel model is a geometry based stochastic channel model (GSCM) for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) simulations. This paper presents parameterization and validation of the channel model for peer-to-peer communication in the 300 MHz band. Measurements were carried out in outdoor environments for both line-of-sight (LOS) and non line-of-sight (NLOS) scenarios. The COST 2100 channel model is characterized and parameterized based on clusters. The KpowerMeans algorithm and a Kalman filter are used for identifying and tracking clusters from measurements. General issues regarding the parameterization for the channel model are analyzed in detail. A full set of single-link parameters for the channel model is extracted from the measurements. These parameters are used as the input to the channel model validation processes, targeting delay spread, spatial correlation, singular value distribution as well as antenna correlation. The validation results show good agreements for spatial

correlation and singular value distribution between the channel model simulations and the 300 MHz outdoor measurements. Our findings suggest that the model has potential for modeling 300 MHz channels

in outdoor environments, although some adjustments are needed for the distribution of cluster delay spreads and the size of visibility regions. (Less)
