STC successfully tests 3.5GHz massive MIMO network

Tuesday 16 May 2017 | 20:18 CET | News
Saudi operator STC and Huawei have jointly announced the successful trial of the first 5G innovative Massive MIMO network in the MENA region. STC completed testing of the latest 3.5GHz Massive MIMO technology, which is considered a corner stone technology for enabling core 5G services. It uses a large number of antennas and beam forming to enhance spectrum multiplexing among multiple user equipment (UEs) to improve the end user experience. 

The new 5G technologies aim at providing huge capacity, better spectral efficiency and lower latency. Widespread 5G connectivity will eliminate information islands, boost the prosperity of a digitalized sharing economy, promote changes to existing production methods and lifestyles. Massive MIMO increases the cell capacity without the need for extra spectrum or additional new sites. STC said this deployment resulted in improvement in network performance and consequent enhancement in user experience.
