A channel model should include information about the angle of multipath arrivals in order to characterize the propagation channel. In this paper, we present results from a large set of direction of arrival (DOA) measurements performed for both line-of-sight (LOS) and non-LOS (NLOS) conditions. The aim of this paper is to establish channel models by characterising the propagation in outdoor-to-indoor case at 3.5 GHz. These models will be used to simulate a WIMAX system. A description of the measurement system developed and used throughout the experiments is made.
