Channel measurement refers to the techniques widely used in telecommunications for studying the properties of wireless channels. It is done by carrying out real-world measurements using a set of specialized equipment known as channel sounders (transmitter(s) and receiver(s)). Typically, the field measurements are undertaken at different times, cities, environments, and under different scenarios, resulting in what is referred to as channel measurement campaigns. The results from the measurements are used to develop channel models for the characterization and performance evaluation of wireless systems and networks. Millimeter wave (mmWave) channel measurements thus refer to measurements carried out at mmWave frequencies (30–300 GHz) (Busari et al., 2017).
