Achieving greater performance at nearly half the cost with Interleaved MIMO

Download Whitepaper

The demand for greater wireless bandwidth and better network performance is forcing operators to consider solutions capable of providing exponentially higher data rates. As a result, many are exploring the use of multiple-in, multiple-out (MIMO) transmission schemes in a distributed antenna system (DAS) environment. Until recently, selecting a MIMO solution over a more traditional single-in, single-out (SISO) solution to achieve higher data rates mandated a much higher CapEx investment. This initial high-cost investment forced operators to make a difficult choice: state-of-the-art performance or bottom-line profitability.

CommScope recently finished testing and patenting an alternative scheme for interleaved MIMO. Called i-MIMO, this solution enables operators to realize close to full MIMO performance at roughly half the cost of prior MIMO solutions.
