Etisalat trials massive MIMO with Ericsson in UAE

Wednesday 1 August 2018 | 16:38 CET | News
Etisalat and Ericsson have successfully conducted a live on-air trial of the Ericsson Radio System with massive MIMO technology in the United Arab Emirates, paving the way towards 5G deployment. As one of Ericsson's key New Radio (NR) technologies, massive MIMO has enabled the launch of the Antenna Integrated Radio (AIR) 6468 on the Etisalat UAE network. Etisalat tested the benefits of massive MIMO in real-life scenarios with the advanced NR Radio and baseband, which are 5G ready, and the latest 5G plug-Ins software.
