Dual-Polarized (DP) Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems are known to be beneficial in terms of the spectral efficiency under certain conditions on the channel and the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR). In order to assess under which conditions DP antenna setups are advantageous over Single-Polarized (SP) antenna setups, an accurate yet analytically tractable modeling of such channels is a necessary but challenging task. The authors propose a novel channel model for DP mobile Ricean MIMO channels for which the statistical channel parameters are readily obtained from a moment-based channel decomposition.
