Quantifying the Benefits of 64T64R Massive MIMO with Beamforming and Multi-User MIMO Capabilities (2018) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

December 4, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 4, 2018--The “Quantifying the Benefits of 64T64R Massive MIMO with Beamforming and Multi-User MIMO Capabilities” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The author conducted the first independent benchmark study of Massive MIMO. This research was tested in Dallas, Texas with the Sprint LTE TDD network (Band 41) by comparing the results of side-by-side 64T64R and 8T8R antenna systems.

This study was done with the logistical support of Accuver Americas who provided the analysts with its suite of drive test tools. XCAL-Auto was used to remotely control and monitor the test activities with the eight remote Galaxy S8 smartphones which were located throughout the network. XCAL-Solo was used with each S8 smartphone to log the data and we used XCAP to post process and analyze the data. The takes full responsibility for the data collection and the analysis provided in the report.

The study observed up to a 3.4x increase in downlink sector throughput and up to an 8.9x increase in the uplink sector throughput versus 8T8R (obviously the gain is substantially higher relative to 2T2R). Results varied based on the test conditions that were identified. Link budget tests revealed close to a triple-digit improvement in uplink data speeds. Preliminary results for the downlink also showed strong gains. Future improvements in 64T64R are forthcoming based on likely vendor product roadmaps.
