Herein, results from measurements conducted by the University of Bristol are presented. The channel characteristics of multiple input multiple output (MIMO) indoor systems at 5.2 GHz are studied. Our investigation shows that the envelope of the channel for non-line-of-sight (NLOS) indoor situations are approximately Rayleigh distributed and consequently we focus on a statistical description of the first and second order moments of the narrowband MIMO channel. Furthermore, it is shown that for NLOS indoor scenarios, the MIMO channel covariance matrix can be well approximated by a Kronecker product of the covariance matrices describing the correlation at the transmitter and receiver side respectively. A statistical narrowband model for the NLOS indoor MIMO channel based on this covariance structure is presented.
