Massive MU-MIMO Technology Tested to Increase Spectrum Capacity by 1,000x

Current telecommunications technology is constantly improving. With every generation of wireless network, carriers make improvements to meet data demand, speeds increase, and new capabilities and applications of mobile networks arise. Cell towers, with a few antennas per base station, have been the backbone of the industry, standing as points of reception and transmission of data on radio airwaves. Today’s top-of-the-line 4G wireless networks’ base stations have the capacity to communicate with up to four users at a time on a given frequency.

The Future of Cell Towers

Could Advancements in Cellular Technology Make Cell Towers as We Know Them Obsolete?

With talk of a 5G mobile network slated to launch sometime in 2020, cellular carriers and consumers in the know are equally delighted: 5G will mean more than 10 times the current capacity of even the best 4G LTE. Still, with the announcement of this and other technological advancements, some are concerned about what the debut of new technology could mean for the cellular industry as we know it.

The Future of IoT Connectivity

The Availability of Mobile Data Connectivity is Key

As the Internet of Things (IoT) matures, and begins to mean more than the oversimplified (and over-hyped) early examples, such as the much maligned connected fridge, it has become clear that mobile networks will be crucial for ensuring connectivity of devices. It’s beyond doubt that mobile data connectivity (3G/4G) will be key to this, until the arrival of 5G at least.
