The high attenuation of millimeter-wave (mmWave) would significantly reduce the coverage areas, and hence it is critical to study the propagation characteristics of mmWave in multiple deployment scenarios. In this work, we investigated the propagation and scattering behavior of 60 GHz mmWave signals in outdoor environments at a travel distance of 98 m for an aerial link (rooftop to rooftop), and 147 m for a ground link (light-pole to light-pole). Measurements were carried out using Facebook…

28 GHz Indoor and Outdoor Propagation Measurements and Analysis at a Regional Airport
Results on LOS propagation, reflection, penetration, signal coverage, and multipath components (MPCs) show a lower indoor FSPL, a richer scattering, and a better coverage compared to outdoor, while high indoor-to-outdoor propagation losses are observed.
28 GHz mmWave Channel Measurements and Modeling in a Library Environment
A rotated directional antenna-based channel sounder is used for measurements at 28 GHz in large indoor environments at a library setting and models for power angular-delay profile and large-scale path loss based on the measurements over distances ranging from 10 m to 50 m are presented.
Analysis of 60-GHz In-street Backhaul Channel Measurements and LiDAR Ray-based Simulations
Measurement and simulation of 60 GHz in-street backhaul propagation channel shows strong channel sparsity when antennas are located at 3 meters above the ground, caused by the many in- street obstacles.

These data are useful for link budget design and site-specific (ray-tracing) models for future millimeter-wave communications systems.
28 GHz propagation measurements for outdoor cellular communications using steerable beam antennas in New York city
The world's first empirical measurements for 28 GHz outdoor cellular propagation in New York City are presented, suggesting that millimeter wave mobile communication systems with electrically steerable antennas could exploit resolvable multipath components to create viable links for cell sizes on the order of 200 m.
Indoor Wireless Channel Properties at Millimeter Wave and Sub-Terahertz Frequencies
Indoor propagation measurements and large-scale indoor path loss models at 140 GHz are provided, revealing similar path loss exponent and shadow fading as observed at 28 and 73 GHz.
60 GHz Path Loss Modelling Inside Ships
This paper presents the results of a mmWave channel sounding campaign in a bulk carrier vessel. Using the Terragraph channel sounder, we measured path loss at 60.48 GHz for different separations
28 GHz millimeter wave cellular communication measurements for reflection and penetration loss in and around buildings in New York city
Reflection coefficients and penetration losses for common building materials at 28 GHz show that outdoor building materials are excellent reflectors with the largest measured reflection coefficient of 0.896 for tinted glass as compared to indoor building materials that are less reflective.
Wideband Millimeter-Wave Propagation Measurements and Channel Models for Future Wireless Communication System Design
Experimental measurements and empirically-based propagation channel models for the 28, 38, 60, and 73 GHz mmWave bands are presented, using a wideband sliding correlator channel sounder with steerable directional horn antennas at both the transmitter and receiver from 2011 to 2013.
mmWave Massive MIMO Channel Measurements for Fixed Wireless and Smart City Applications
The findings from a mmWave channel measurement campaign performed in different indoor and outdoor scenarios are presented as part of the contribution to the mmWave Network Project Group of the Telecom Infra Project (https://telecominfraproject.com/mmwave/).
