© 1990-2011 IEEE.The World Radiocommunication Conference 2015 (WRC-15) identified a number of frequency bands between 24 and 86 GHz as candidate frequencies for future cellular networks. In this article, an extensive review of propagation characteristics and challenges related to the use of millimeter wave (mm-wave) in future wireless systems is presented. Reference to existing path-loss models including atmospheric and material attenuation in recommendations of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in Geneva, Switzerland, is given, and the need for new multidimensional models and measurements is identified. A description of state-of-the-art mm-wave channel sounders for single and multiple antenna measurements is followed by a discussion of the most recent deterministic, semideterministic, and stochastic propagation and channel models. Finally, standardization issues are outlined with recommendations for future research.
