Abstract

In this paper, the statistical channel properties and channel modeling of indoor part for high-speed train communication system is presented based on wideband channel measurement at 2.35 GHz. Two configurations of base station (BS) antennas, the omni-directional ceiling antenna and the planar antenna on the wall, are used in the measurement, in order to compare different channel characteristics and facilitate the future wideband system deployment. Channel properties, such as Path Loss (PL), Delay Spread (DS) and Ricean K-factor, are analyzed and modeled. The empirical log-distance PL models are derived. It is found that PL with planar antenna at BS is 10 dB bigger than that with omni-directional antenna. The latter is even smaller than the PL of the free space. The distributions of DS under these two configurations are both well fitted with the lognormal distribution, and the mean values of them are similar. However, K-factors in decibel are quite different, although both follow well with the normal distribution. The mean values of K-factor with the omni-directional antenna and the planar antenna at BS are 10.41 dB and 4.09 dB, respectively.
