The MIMO OTA way forward was approved at the 3GPP RAN4 #62bis meeting in Jeju (Korea) [1], and among the remaining works to be accomplished it was highlighted that the channel model had to be validated across methods in order to ensure that a minimal number of artifacts are inserted into the channel model by any given methodology and that the different methods reproduce, and the DUT experiences, the same radio conditions regardless of the methodology.
