Best Practices to Accelerate 5G Base Station Deployment: Your RF Front-End Massive MIMO Primer

Strategy Analytics predicts an explosive growth of emerging 5G networks. They forecasted the number of new base station sectors deployed to double between 2018 and 2024. This rapid 5G growth will result in equipment for nearly 9.4 million new and upgraded wireless base stations deployed by 2024. Many of these 5G base stations will incorporate massive MIMO antennas. These new 5G network architectures incorporating massive MIMO antennas are pushing always-on connectivity to the outer edges of the cellular network. This article covers everything to know about the fundamentals of the RF front-end in the massive MIMO base station.
