Tue 25 Apr: Beamforming and Massive MIMO (Enabling 5G)
About the Event
5G enables access to higher frequency spectrum than previous generations. In order to efficiently use that high frequency spectrum [and put very simply], antenna size needs to be smaller, and we need to use more of them. This in turn means that massive antenna arrays are a key component of 5G deployment - where lots of antennas are used in a very organised way to focus energy and drive spectral efficiency. The ways in which 5G data streams are mapped to those antenna arrays is highly flexible, offering the operator a range of beamforming and massive MIMO (Multiple-In, Multiple-Out) options.
This talk explores the options and techniques available, as well as setting out the most appropriate deployment scenarios. We aim to make sense of this highly complex subject – looking at the impact of advanced antenna systems without getting stuck into the mathematics!
Topics to be discussed include:
- Frequency Bands for 5G
- Propagation Characteristics - UHF to mmWave
- Frequency and Typical Cell Ranges
- Dual Connectivity
- Antenna Arrays
- MIMO Explained
- Massive MIMO Techniques
- Beamforming in 5G
- Advanced Antenna Techniques
- Use of Reference Signals and Feedback for Beam Management
- Advanced Antenna Use Cases
