Millimeter wave (mmWave) communication is con-sidered as a key technology in fifth generation (5G) wireless communication standard to meet the skyrocketing demand of traffic by enabling its huge bandwidth. However, channel model is still complex in case of mmWave communication due to its high weather sensitivity and stringent line-of-sight (LOS) requirement for a short range. In this paper, we simulate the characteristics of a spatial channel modeling for 5G mmWave for several mmWave bands (28, 38, 60, and 73 GHz) using by NYUSIM.

This simulator can handle a large span of carrier frequencies up to 100 GHz and radio frequency (RF) bandwidth up to 800 MHz for different environment conditions including urban macrocell, urban microcell, and rural macrocell. Simulation results present 3D channel characteristics and various power delay profiles while considering time cluster-spatial lobe approach for different mmWave bands.
