This paper describes samples of analysed results obtained from a high-resolution dynamic double-directional channel sounding campaign conducted in a hotspot courtyard environment. Post-processed results indicate that significant amount of multipath components (MPCs) concentrated along the axis where both transmitter (Tx) and receiver (Rx) faced each other. The global distributions of directional parameters at both sides were found to be uniformly distributed, with a peak exhibiting Laplacian characteristics around directional region where both terminals faced each other. Further, the capacity of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel has been evaluated based on reconstructed channel responses from knowledge of multipath parameters, and was found to provide excellent match with capacity computed from real measurement data
