To design a reliable communication system utilizing millimeter-wave (mm-wave) technology, which is gaining popularity due to its ability to deliver multi-gigabit-per-second data rate, it's essential to consider the site-specific nature of the mmwave propagation. Conventional site-general stochastic channel models are often unsatisfactory for accurately reproducing the channel responses under specific usage scenarios or environments. For high-precision channel simulation that reflects sitespecific characteristics, this paper proposes a channel model framework leveraging a widely accepted 3GPP map-based hybrid channel modeling approach, and it provides a detailed recipe to apply it to an actual scenario using some examples. First, an extensive measurement campaign was conducted in typical urban macro and micro cellular environments using an inhouse dual-band (24/60 GHz) double-directional channel sounder. Subsequently, the mm-wave channel behavior was characterized, focusing on the difference between the two frequencies. Then, the site-specific large-scale and small-scale channel properties were parameterized. As an essential component for improving prediction accuracy, this paper proposes an exponential decay model for power delay characteristics of non-line-of-sight clusters, of which powers are significantly overestimated by deterministic prediction tools. Finally, using the in-house channel model simulator (CPSQDSIM) developed for grid-wise channel data (PathGridData) generation, a significant improvement in prediction accuracy compared with the existing 3GPP map-based channel model was demonstrated.
