Telefonica runs 3.5 GHz LTE TDD Massive MIMO trial

Tuesday 28 February 2017 | 11:10 CET | News
Telefonica has successfully completed an outfield trial of its TDD Massive MIMO, running sixteen terminals simultaneously over 20 MHz spectrum on the 3.5 GHz band. The trial, conducted over the O2 LTE sub network in Munich, showed a peak downlink rate of 650 Mbps. Its completion verified the performance of the TDD Massive MIMO, a project undertaken jointly by Telefonica and Huawei. Massive MIMO is a multi-antenna technology cable of full three-dimensional beam forming, which allows the antenna to directly cover areas where a high capacity is needed.
