Analysis of MIMO performance for 5G

Chandan B S, Dr. Arathi R Shankar, Gayetri vranjeri


MIMO stands for Multiple input multiple output, is considered as onevof thevpillar’s for the cellular communication networks. InvMIMOvtechnology, multiplevantennasvarevplaced atvboth transmittervandvreceiver. The primary goal of thevMIMO isvto enhance thevcapacity, coveragevand throughputvof the wireless communicationvsystems. MIMO alsovcontrols thevoverall antenna patternvforvinterferencevreduction. For its abilityvto deliverva largervspectral efficiency, MIMOvis consideredvas keyvtechnology for cellularvnetworks. Constructingvantenna arraysvat bothvtransmitter andvreceivervside will also improvesvthevdirectivity, therebyvthevlongvdistance communicationbis possible.
