Channel models of massive MIMO.

Modeling method Category Property

CBSMi.i.d. Rayleigh channel model Elements of fast fading are i.i.d. complex Gaussian variables
Correlation channel model Contain correlation between transmit antennas or/and receive antennas
Mutual coupling channel model Consider antenna impedance, load impedance, and mutual impedance

GBSM2D channel model Propagate beam on 2D plane, such as linear array
3D channel model Propagate beam on 3D plane, such as spherical, rectangular, and cylindrical array
