Cobham Wireless said it has delivered its massive MIMO (Multiple-In-Multiple-Out) test solution to China Mobile Research Institute, to enable the operator to verify the capacity and performance of Massive MIMO technology.
Cobham Wireless has developed a multi-beam Massive-MIMO performance test solution offering a cost-effective way to validate Massive MIMO core technologies and system functions.
This will help in the deployment of massive MIMO technology to improve network capacity and energy efficiency by increasing the number of data signals. Massive MIMO can improve end-user experience by directing signal to areas where there is high-bandwidth demand, and away from areas where less energy is required.
Cobham Wireless will be testing the massive MIMO technology in a virtualized environment that can simulate real-world conditions and different beam-based capacity performance scenarios.
According to Cobham, its test solution is implemented on a software-based validation platform, which can easily adjust to new standards, positioning the operator at the forefront of 5G innovation as its network evolves. This is hoped to set new benchmarks in the development of 5G.
