Multi-band Characterization of Propagation in Industry Scenarios
Industry 4.0 is the scenario in which the 5G and beyond networks are expected to show all their potential. However, while propagation at sub-6 GHz has been widely investigated in industry environments, mm-waves propagation and channel modelling in those scenarios is still under early research. Therefore, we introduce novel simultaneous multiband ultra-wideband measurements at 6.75 GHz and 30 GHz in LOS and NLOS with RX below and above clutter level. This unique set-up allows a direct comparison between the sub-6 GHz and mm-wave channel. Results have shown larger specular to dense multi-path components power ratio and shorter large-scale parameters at mm-waves.
