In this paper, we present results from measurements conducted by the University of Bristol. We study the channel characteristics of Multiple Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) indoor channel at 5.2 GHz. Our investigation shows that the envelope of the channel for non-line-of-sight (NLOS) indoor situations is approximately Rayleigh distributed and consequently we focus on a statistical description of the first and second order moments of the narrowband M/MO channel. Furthermore, it is shown that for NLOS indoor scenarios, the MIMO channel covariance matrix can be well modeled by a Kronecker product of the covariance matrices describing the correlation at the transmitter and the receiver side respectively. A statistical narrowband model for the NLOS indoor MIMO channel based on this covariance structure is presented along with some simulation results
