Multi-User MIMO Dataset

Project Dataset

We used the Argos V2 platform to measure the mobile channels to a 64-antenna massive MIMO base station in outdoor environments. We measured user channels in 4 Line-of-Sight and 5 Non-Line-of-Sight clusters in near-stable environments. In each cluster, we measured channels in more than 25 locations. In total, the measurement covers more than 225 locations. And the measured channel at each location covers all 52 data sub-carriers and up to 300 frames. The measurement is done on 2.4-GHz ISM band.
