This paper derives a generic model for the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless channel. The model incorporates important effects, including i) interdependency of directions-of-arrival and directions-of-departure, ii) large delay and angle dispersion by propagation via far clusters, and iii) rank reduction of the transfer function matrix. We propose a geometry-based model that includes the propagation effects that are critical for MIMO performance: i) single scattering around the BS and MS, ii) scattering by far clusters, iii) double-scattering, iv) waveguiding, and v) diffraction by roof edges. The required parameters for the complete definition of the model are enumerated, and typical parameter values in macro and microcellular environments are discussed.
