Massive MIMO Trials: Driving Gigabit LTE and 5G Services

 

Sprint and Ericsson secured early results from their joint field testing of Massive MIMO on the Sprint LTE Plus network in downtown Seattle and Plano, Texas, demonstrating a 4x increase in spectral efficiency. Massive MIMO is key to a network’s ability to meet demands of urban and rural users as a precursor to 5G network deployment in the next few years. Here to discuss from MWC Americas 2017 is Ron Marquardt, VP of Technology for Sprint.
