5G Massive MIMO Overview

In 5G, Massive MIMO is considered as the holy grail to increase individual datarates, to improve cell capacity, to extend range, or any combination of these. mMIMO is not a single technique, however, there are a number of different flavors that can to a degree be mixed and matched to achieve different things.

5G TDD: Synchronization Across Networks Required?

I recently came across this paper of Huawei on 5G Spectrum matters and one paragraph in particular caught my attention: “[…] inter-operator synchronisation and alignment of uplink/downlink transmissions (slot and frame synchronization) is […] necessary for efficient deployment of 5G NR networks in unpaired assignments.” In other words this sentence says that network operators using … Continue reading 5G TDD: Synchronization Across Networks Required?
