Over the last ten years, the research and development has been supported by the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India (MeitY) and the Department of Telecommunications (DoT). Massive MIMO refers to the deployment of MIMO on a larger scale to improve network coverage and data carrying capacity. The antennas needed for the technology are smaller than those used in traditional telecom equipment, reducing the physical footprint of telecom infrastructure. The technology is a three-fold improvement over the state-of-the-art 5GmassiveMIMO technology and is designed to support 12 simultaneous users. It will be critical in supporting the proliferation of IoT devices and transforming cities into smart cities.
IITH continues to push the boundaries of this technology, and ongoing research includes new deployment topologies for indoor and outdoor cell sites.
