For the design and performance evaluation of advanced wireless communication systems employing Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) technologies, realistic MIMO channel models with a good tradeoff between accuracy and complexity are indispensable. This paper compares the statistical properties of the two latest standardized MIMO channel models: Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) and IMT-Advanced (IMT-A) channel models. Closed-from expressions are derived for the spatial Cross-Correlation Function (CCF), temporal Auto-Correlation Function (ACF), envelope Level-Crossing Rate (LCR), Average Fading Duration (AFD), Power Delay Profile (PDP), and Frequency Correlation Function (FCF) for both models.
