Abstract: In this paper, measurement data from wideband multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel measurements at 2.35 GHz are presented. Measurements were preformed in indoor hotspot scenario with no line of sight (NLOS). Space-alternating generalized expectation (SAGE) algorithm was utilized to estimate angular domain parameters and powers of multipath components (MPCs), which are then used to compute the circular angular spread (CAS) and to construct the power azimuth spectrum (PAS) of transmitter and receiver sides. It is found that PASs of both sides follow multi-cluster truncated Laplacian distribution. The spatial correlation, capacity and multiplexing gain are also presented. Due to rich scatters in the indoor hotspot environment, the correlation space is Q.2lambda and the multiplexing gain is 15, which indicate indoor hotspot MIMO channels facilitate multiplexing and could achieve high capacity. The results provide important basis for future channel modeling and technique evaluation.
