Nokia, Sprint show off massive MIMO at MWC

Monday 27 February 2017 | 15:42 CET | News
Nokia and Sprint are demonstrating massive MIMO at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, showing how the technology can boost cell capacity eight-fold compared to 4G. Sprint said the joint demo makes it the first US operator to demonstrate massive MIMO for TDD-LTE spectrum with 64T64R, for both the downlink and uplink on an existing LTE frequency. Massive MIMO, a key element of 5G, can enable LTE network performance well beyond 1Gbps.
