The huge MIMO radio will appear soon

For radio multiple input and multiple output i.e. MIMO, a procedure is multiplied by the capacity of a radio connection using multiple transmission and reception antennas to take advantage of multipath propagation. MIMO has become an essential component of wireless communication standards, including IEEE 802.11n (Wi-Fi), IEEE 802.11ac (Wi-Fi), HSPA + (3G), WiMAX, and Long Term Evolution (LTE). Recently, MIMO has been used for power line communication in three-wire installations as part of the ITU standard and the HomePlug AV2 specification.

Nokia CEO Pekka Lundmark noted that Verizon ranked Nokia among its radio partners on the last capital market day.

Pekka Lundmark said: "I can confirm that we have new radios on the market ... both a new huge MIMO radio and a new baseband."

According to him, Nokia's new huge MIMO radio is "coming soon". He said he would have wider bandwidth than his competitor, although he did not specify which “competitor” he was referring to. Both Ericsson and Samsung have announced new 5G rugged MIMO radios.

He also said the radio will be “lighter than its competition” in some high-volume configurations, such as the 32T32R.

He said the first common baseband for 4G / 5G is now delivering to some experimental customers and that the full rise will begin in the second quarter.

“This issue of 5G radio competitiveness will definitely be central to the overall competitiveness of our mobile network business; that Nokia is half like the whole company. Lundmark said.

At the same time, the term "MIMO" refers to the use of multiple antennas at the transmitter and receiver wirelessly. In modern use, "MIMO" specifically refers to a practical technique for transmitting and receiving more than one data signal simultaneously over the same radio channel using multipath propagation. MIMO is fundamentally different from intelligent antenna techniques, which have been developed to enhance the performance of a single data signal, such as beamforming and diversity.
