Abstract

This paper presents the results of a measurement campaign aimed at characterizing and modeling the indoor radio channel between two hypothetical cellular handsets. The device-to-device channel measurements were made at 868 MHz and investigated a number of different everyday scenarios such as the devices being held at the user's heads, placed in a pocket and one of the devices placed on a desktop. The recently proposed shadowed k-μ fading model was used to characterize these channels and was shown to provide a good description of the measured data. It was also evident from the experiments, that the device-to-device communications channel is susceptible to shadowing caused by the human body.
