Massive MIMO Working Group
The use of a large number of antenna elements, known as Massive MIMO, is seen as a key enabling technology in the 5G and Beyond wireless ecosystem. The intelligent use of the multitude of antenna elements unleashes unprecedented flexibility and control of the physical channel of the wireless medium. Through Massive MIMO and other techniques, it is envisioned the 5G and Beyond wireless system will be able to support high throughput, high reliability (low bit-error-rate (BER)), high energy efficiency, low latency, and an Internet-scale number of connected devices. Massive MIMO and related technologies will be deployed in the mid-band (sub 6 GHz) for coverage, all the way to mmWave bands to support large channel bandwidths. It is envisioned Massive MIMO will be deployed in different environments: FDD, TDD, indoor/outdoor, small cell, macro cell, and other heterogeneous network (HetNet) configurations.
The scope of the Massive MIMO Working Group includes the following topics:
- Framework for large number of active users with massive connectivity.
- Framework for high spectral efficiency and energy efficiency with high user density and emerging applications having the strong need of QoS guarantees.
- Big Data Management.
- Cost-effective, reliable, and scalable implementation for Massive MIMO.
- Machine-type communications and low complexity transceiver design.
- PHY design for mmWave massive MIMO systems.
- Analog and digital hybrid precoding design
- Secure communications for massive MIMO systems
- The integrating of machine learning into massive MIMO systems.
