This paper presents a MIMO channel measurement for indoor environment. The results present the comparison of channel capacity by using beamforming technique in MIMO systems. Also, polarization diversities (vertical and horizontal) are introduced to reduce multipath fading issues. The measurements were conducted at 2.4GHz with Line of Sight (LOS) scenario.
