Evolving 4G Networks to 5G
This report reviews key Third-Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) areas of work in LTE and 5G, and it discusses important network upgrade considerations facing operators. It provides an overview of key 5G features and architecture, non-standalone 5G network deployment options, key network upgrade considerations, and the evolution of LTE networks to support 5G.Continue
Reports & Data
In September 2017, Huawei and Bharti Airtel in India announced a partnership to deploy massive MIMO technology in one of the main urban and business centers in India. Until the beginning of 2017, the majority of massive MIMO deployment news came from SoftBank in Japan and China Mobile in China. These early systems provided by Huawei and ZTE featured 128 antenna elements (the total number of transmit and receive antennas at the base station) deployed on commercial LTE networks. In Japan, Softbank has deployed massive MIMO systems in about 100 sites across 6 cities including Tokyo to increase the speeds of its existing services. Both operators have also stated that these technologies are pivotal to future 5G deployment. However, in the first six months of 2017 more than ten trials have been reported now; the Huawei and Bharti Airtel announcement being among the most recent.
