An extensive review of the statistical characterization of 60-GHz indoor radio channels is provided from a large number of published measurement and modeling results. First, the most prominent driver applications for 60 GHz are considered in order to identify those environment types that need to be characterized most urgently. Large-scale fading is addressed yielding path-loss parameter values for a generic 60-GHz indoor channel model as well as for the office environment in particular. In addition, the small-scale channel behavior is reviewed including the modeling of time-of-arrival and angle-of-arrival details and statistical parameters related to delay spread, angular spread and Doppler spread. Finally, some research directions for future channel characterization are given.
