The authors present an empirically based comparative study of spectral efficiency for a variety of transmission systems applicable to a fixed or repositionable wireless environment, in the context of Wi-Fi, WiMAX or MuniNet systems. A narrowband 4x4 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) channel sounder has been constructed and a series of outdoor to indoor measurements have been carried out, in multiple locations and with different array configurations. The channel measurements have been used to compute the spectral efficiency of different systems that could be deployed in such scenarios, ranging from a full MIMO system with perfect Channel State Information (CSI) at both ends to simple diversity schemes such as classical beamforming.
