WINNER Phase I Model



Here you find the source code of a MATLAB/ANSI-C implementation of the WINNER Phase I Channel Model specified in

[3] IST-WINNER D5.4 D.S. Baum, H. El-Sallabi, et al., "Final Report on Link and System Level Channel Models", ver 1.4, Oct. 2005. Available: https://www.ist-winner.org/DeliverableDocuments/D5.4.pdf

The code is mostly based on MATLAB, but, as an optional feature, certain parts have also been implemented in ANSI-C for computational efficiency. The code was developed in Workpackage 5 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
  • seven 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


The current version is 1.5. It was released August 20, 2006. You can download the code and the documentation from the following link.

The WINNER Phase I model implementation is based on SCM/SCME implementations. What is incremental to these is mainly written by Daniela Laselva (Elektrobit), Pekka Kyösti (Elektrobit), Lassi Hentilä (Elektrobit), and Marko Milojevic (TU Ilmenau).
