Based on the channel measurement in a typical indoor environment, wideband Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) channel capacity analysis result is reported in this paper. A series of Non Line-Of-Sight (NLOS) and LOS measurement positions are planned for capacity comparison in different propagation conditions. For fixed received Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), slight average capacity loss in LOS cases is observed compared to NLOS cases. However, the capacity in presence of LOS component appears more position-sensitive than that in NLOS cases. When considering the large scale path loss difference introduced by the receiver movement, the capacity in LOS cases greatly exceeds the NLOS cases.
