In 2020, 5G Deployments will Continue at a Frantic Pace
The implementation of massive MIMO in 5G systems is changing, according to a Mobile Experts report.
There’s a shift away from the dominant position of 64T64R mMIMO, toward 32T32R systems. During initial 5G system roll-outs, the distinct preference was to achieve best coverage and data rate, leading to large deployment of 64T64R mMIMO antenna solutions.
The 5G snowball is gaining momentum; in 2020, the pace of deployments will continue the frantic pace they set in 2019. It’s also gaining weight as areas with early deployments extend the overall coverage area, fill in gaps and start implementing applications that 5G systems can offer.
