WINNER Phase II Model



The source code of a MATLAB reference implementation of the WINNER Phase II Channel Model has been specified in (including also Part II):

[4] IST-WINNER D1.1.2 P. Kyösti, et al., "WINNER II Channel Models", ver 1.1, Sept. 2007. Available: https://www.ist-winner.org/WINNER2-Deliverables/D1.1.2v1.1.pdf

The code is implemented on MATLAB. The code was developed in Workpackage 1 of the WINNER project of the European Union's 6th Framework Programme.

The software was developed for MATLAB 6.5.0 (R13). Older MATLAB versions may cause unexpected problems. Certain optional ANSI-C functions require GNU Scientific Library (GSL), but the program can also be used without it.



The main features of this WIM implementation include:

  • parametrization based on measurements
  • seventeen model scenarios (including indoor)
  • stochastic models for system level simulations
  • fixed clustered delay line (CDL) models for calibration simulations
  • network layout visualization tool auto-correlation of large-scale channel parameters
  • support to arbitrary 3D antenna geometry and field patterns


The current version was released on September 22, 2008. You can download the code and the documentation from the following link.

The WINNER Phase I model implementation is based on SCM/SCME/WINNER I implementations. What is incremental to these is mainly written by Lassi Hentilä (Elektrobit), Pekka Kyösti (Elektrobit), Martin Käske (TU Ilmenau), Milan Narandzic (TUI Ilmenau), and Mikko Alatossava (University of Oulu).
