This letter presents an extensive multidimensional analysis of line-of-sight (LOS) experimental data and simulations at 60 GHz over a 9-GHz bandwidth. Numerical versions of the measured multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) channel transfer functions were obtained with a ray-tracing engine that includes single-order diffuse scattering. The received power, RMS delay spread (DS), and maximum excess delay (MED) computed from both measured and simulated data indicate that diffuse scattering improves ray-tracing-based modeling. Moreover, the multipath components (MPCs) extracted from both sets of data using the high-resolution estimator RiMAX were statistically compared. The analysis of the results shows that even a raw description of the environment can be used to predict millimeter-wave (mmW) propagation with ray tracing. © 2014 IEEE.
