Massive MIMO for 5 G

  title={Massive MIMO for 5 G},
  author={Erik G. Larsson and L. Perre},
Massive MIMO is the currently most compelling sub-6 GHz physical-layer technology for future wireless access. The main concept is to use large antenna arrays at base stations to simultaneously serve many autonomous terminals, as illustrated in Figure 1. The rich and unique propagation signatures of the terminals are exploited with smart processing at the array to achieve superior capacity. Massive MIMO splendidly offers two most desirable benefits:

Massive MIMO for next generation wireless systems

While massive MIMO renders many traditional research problems irrelevant, it uncovers entirely new problems that urgently need attention: the challenge of making many low-cost low-precision components that work effectively together, acquisition and synchronization for newly joined terminals, the exploitation of extra degrees of freedom provided by the excess of service antennas, reducing internal power consumption to achieve total energy efficiency reductions, and finding new deployment scenarios.
