Abstract: The wideband channel measurements at 580 MHz, 2.35 GHz and 4.90 GHz have been performed in the urban micro- and macrocell scenarios in the cities of China with multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel sounder. The measured cases include line-of-sight (LOS) and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) propagation. Statistical results and comparative analysis for both scenarios are presented in this paper, including path loss (PL), root mean square (rms) delay spread (DS) and maximum excess delay (maxED), and angular spread (AS). In NLOS case, the frequency dependent factor (FDF) is observed as 32.1 by fitting the PL model of 2.35 GHz and 4.90 GHz. Moreover, a larger rms DS in urban microcell and AS at both base station (BS) and mobile subscriber (MS) are found for the denser and higher buildings in the cities of China. As the frequency varying from 580 MHz to 4.90 GHz, the median rms DS is decreased from 330 ns to 130 ns for NLOS case.
