How 4×4 MIMO can boost your mobile network

The inexorable demand for more mobile data volume requires ever-higher capacities in radio mobile networks. Network densification and the introduction of new frequencies could be solutions, but both are time-consuming and cost intensive. The implementation of higher-order MIMO features into existing radio networks, however, will boost peak data rates throughout the network and deliver an additional capacity gain. 4×4 MIMO…
