A Practical Guide to WiMAX Antennas: MIMO and Beamforming Technical Overview
Revolutionary multiple antenna techniques at the base station and end-user device, paired with sophisticated signal processing, allow WiMAX to dramatically improve the communications link for the most demanding application scenarios including heavily obstructed propagation environments and high speed mobility service. Conventional wireless network design has long used base site sectorization and single, omni-directional antennas at the end-user device to serve the communications link. Now with WiMAX's advanced, multi-antenna implementations, operators have a new suite of tools to develop the robust wireless networks of the future. Read this white paper to learn more about how this technology works and the benefits it provides.
