Abstract
This paper presents an overview about Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems and its capabilities to provide high data rates and quality of service. To maximize the gains achieved with MIMO systems, a detailed characterization of the channel is needed so a MIMO channel model will be presented and, based on data collection, a performance analysis will be made. The evaluated model presented here is the extended Saleh-Valenzuela model.
