Metrics obtained from a set of channel measurement data are used to predict performance of different MIMO techniques, such as spatial multiplexing and space-time block coding. For a given channel-realisation, metrics such as mutual information, eigenvalues, etc. can be extracted and the BER performance simulated for different MIMO techniques. By correlating the simulated BER performances to the metrics, it can be determined which metrics are useful BER performance predictors for a given MIMO technique. It is shown that mutual information and the eigenvalues of the spatial correlation matrix are useful BER predictors for V-BLAST and STBC techniques
