This paper investigates the viability of an `image based' 3D indoor propagation algorithm for characterising the radio channel in both LOS and non-LOS locations. The channel characteristics are also studied for different receiver antenna orientations. Predictions from the model are compared with high resolution channel impulse response measurements. The measurements highlight the high degree of variability experienced in the indoor channel. The results illustrate that with sufficient detail in the ray model reasonable agreement can be obtained for the power delay profiles
