Implementing, Testing MIMO & Beamforming in 5G Base Stations & Components - The Three Challenges

As 5G New Radio (NR) moves from the definition and specification phase into development, enabling technologies such as multiple input, multiple output (MIMO), and beamforming are critical. Engineers will use active phased array antennas to implement MIMO and beamforming in base stations and devices. In fact, these active antennas are critical to overcome signal propagation issues, such as higher path loss at millimeter wave frequencies. They also provide the ability to dynamically shape and steer beams to specific users. Active antennas offer more flexibility and improve the performance of 5G communications, especially at millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies.
