A cluster-based channel model is presented that includes polarization characteristics. Measurements have been carried out in an indoor environment at 3.6 GHz using a dual-polarized transmitter and a tri-polarized receiver. Individual propagation paths are extracted using the SAGE algorithm, and a cross-polar discrimination (XPD) per ray is defined. Clusters are identified in the co-elevation-azimuth-delay domain, with an automatic clustering algorithm. The cluster properties are investigated and polarization characteristics are identified on a per-cluster basis. Finally, the obtained model is simulated and extraction-independent parameters are compared with experimental parameters for validation.
