Samsung, on December 8, released a new whitepaper that highlights the capabilities and benefits of Massive Multi-Input, Multi-Output (MIMO) in 5G NR systems. Titled “Massive MIMO for New Radio,” the whitepaper shares the company’s roadmap for Massive MIMO solutions. It also presents essential air technologies, various form factors, and developmental plans, as well as the South Korean electronics giant’s “vision for this critical technology essential for 5G build-out.”
According to the whitepaper, Massive MIMO is a major breakthrough in technology to cope up with the exponentially increasing growth in mobile traffic. Samsung points out the need for fast and stable network connections with newly deployed 5G solutions. And here’s where the Massive MIMO comes to the rescue, by improving the network capacity and the user’s experience.
Samsung’s Massive MIMO Roadmap
The whitepaper explains that Massive MIMO, which is outfitted with a large number of antennas, can control these antennas to concentrate the emitted radio signals into a narrowed beam focussed on a designated user. This results in a significant improvement in throughput and efficiency while reducing interferences among nearby users, says the company.
Notably, the company provides a wide array of Massive MIMO radio lineup that aims to support all of the globally defined 5G spectrums in mid-band and serve diverse environments and site requirements. Samsung says that it will continue to develop technology that supports a vast array of the spectrum with higher capacity.
Samsung said, it will introduce the next-generation Massive MIMO with enhancements in the latest 3GPP release 16 and 17 in the coming years. The electronics company also wants to lay the groundwork for Distributed FD-MIMO (Full Dimension MIMO) in near future.
