Associated Benefits of Massive Multiple-In Multiple-Out Technology and Which Industry May Benefit the Most!

Because of technical advantages in massive MIMO, it is likely to be a key enabler in the field of telecom, IT & services, and military. Massive MIMO systems require higher number of advanced antennas and complex algorithms. Though MIMO technology has been in use since long, the target technology enhances speed, connectivity, and user experience.

Large number of advanced antenna systems for 5G massive MIMO aids in focusing the energy at the single point instead of a diverging one. Prominent advantages of massive MIMO can be summed up in the following points.

Improved Coverage: By the use of this technology, users enjoy the most uniform experience across a wide range of networks. This enables high data rate services everywhere.

Beamforming in the technology is called 3D beamforming, which enables dynamic coverage since users are moving either by walking, vehicles, or connected vehicles. This adjusts the coverage according to their location. In addition its ability to serve multiple users at the time is driving demand for multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO).

Increased Network Capacity: Total volume of data that is being served to users along with the maximum number of users that the technology can serve is known as capacity of network.

The target technology enables high capacity by enabling 5G NR, which is deployed in the frequency range of sub-6 Ghz. Similarly, deploying multi user MIMO enables the service to be availed by many users at the same time.

Enhanced User Experience: As the above two mentioned factors increase, user experience also increases eventually. In terms of high-speed uploading and downloading is leading to mass adoption of massive MIMO.

What are the Restraints being Faced by the Massive MIMO Industry?

High price of spectrum distribution is a prime concern in every region. It highly depends upon government policies, which generally falls into higher tax ranges.

Investments associated with infrastructure building results in loss for a longer period. Where the telecom industry faces cut-throat competition in the market, investing and sustaining becomes a great concern for market players.

Lack of TDD spectrum is also a likely point of concern for TDD-based massive MIMO technology. Currently, traffic is unevenly distributed between end user terminals and base stations. Whereas, FDD provides same channel size on both directions of the network. Massive MIMO experiences higher traffic at the downlink side.

Moreover, TDD technology uses different time frame duration on the same frequency for managing data traffic. Currently, larger share of the market is using FDD spectrum, which limits growth of the target product market.

As demand for high-speed Internet is increasing, FDD-based massive MIMO technology is poised to hold a smaller market share over the coming years.

Which Region Offers Excellent Opportunity for Revenue Generation from Massive MIMO?

North America is expected to account for over 32% of massive MIMO demand throughout the assessment period. Asia Pacific is expected to account for the highest CAGR of almost 29%. Europe is expected to stand next in line, wherein, the U.K. and Germany are market leaders contributing higher dollar opportunity.
