This TR establishes channel models to be used for deployment evaluation.
The channel models have been chosen as simplifications, or typical realisations of the COST 259 model that is described in more detail in Annex A.
A large number of paths (20) in each model ensure that the correlation properties in the frequency domain are realistic. Path powers follow the exponential channel shapes in the COST 259 model. The delay spreads for each model are close to expected medians when applying the COST 259 model in reasonably sized macrocells. In the rural model a direct path is present, resulting in Rice-type fading when filtered to wideband channels. The hilly terrain model onsists of two clusters, a typical situation in these environments.
With the chosen parameters the models will be quite similar to the GSM channel models [GSM 05.05], after filtering to the GSM bandwidth.
In Section 5, the channel models are specified explicitly.
