As the mobile cellular carriers are currently facing a spectrum crunch, researchers are concentrating on higher carrier frequency bands, such as E-band (71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz) for the next generation wireless communication systems. The E-band is promising due to its large available, continuous bandwidth and robust weather resilience. In this paper, we demonstrate a spread spectrum sliding correlator channel sounder operating at a center frequency of 73.5 GHz with an 800 MHz null-to-null bandwidth. The channel sounder provides a multipath time resolution of 2.33 ns. 72 GHz millimeter wave propagation and penetration characteristics in an indoor office environment are investigated using the sliding correlator channel sounding system. Data collected and processed from the measurements shows that strong received power can be achieved from the multipath-rich indoor environment, in the presence of multiple obstructions. The data obtained from this measurement campaign may be utilized for the design of future fifth generation millimeter wave indoor cellular systems.
