Abstract: We present the results of a 3 dimensional (3D) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel impulse response (CIR) measurement conducted in China and New Zealand (NZ) for an outdoor-to-indoor (O2I) urban macro environment. Key channel parameters are computed from the measured data using the space-alternating generalized expectation-maximization (SAGE) algorithm, and are used to re-construct the 16 × 16 3D MIMO CIR according to the guidelines given in the 3GPP 3D MIMO channel model. The CIR is then used to evaluate the channel capacity for four different antenna configurations. These different topologies, along with different antenna spacings, allow us to study the characteristics of the MIMO channel with different spatial correlation structures.
