In this paper, we propose a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) mobile-to-mobile channel simulation model derived from a non-realizable reference model presented in Part I of our paper. The underlying reference model is based on the geometrical two-ring scattering model, where both the transmitter and the receiver are moving. A closed-form solution is provided for the three dimensional (3-D) space-time cross-correlation function (CCF) of the simulation model. An important result is that this CCF is ergodic. Also, our results show that this 3-D function can be expressed as a product of two 2-D space-time CCF, called the transmit and the receive CCF. It is shown that the parameters of the simulation model can be determined for any given space-time CCF describing the reference model. In case of isotropic scattering, we present a closed-form solution of the model parameters and illustrate some numerical results for the transmit and receive CCF. Finally, simulation results show an excellent correspondence between the statistical and time average of the MIMO channel capacity. This supports the hypothesis that the MIMO capacity is ergodic with respect to the mean.
