According to a recent Credit Suisse report, 38 percent of US macro base stations are in a capacity-constrained state, requiring mobile operators to find new ways to increase network capacity. MIMO mode is tailor-made to address this problem because it uses multiple antennas to double network throughput. Moreover, MIMO mode works by creating signal diversity between multiple antennas, so it is ideally suited for DAS deployments inside buildings, where the environment is broken up by walls, furniture, and equipment.

MIMO mode is being used and planned for use by carriers for LTE and other 4G services in the US and abroad. Support of MIMO in its DAS products puts TE at the forefront of equipment vendors helping mobile operators deliver these new services. InterReach Spectrum and InterReach Fusion DAS products are ideal for supporting MIMO because they can support 2×2 MIMO transmission on a single cable versus competing solutions which require duplicate cable infrastructure. This results in quicker and more cost effective installations.

“AWS is another emerging service that will see widespread deployment in the United States, and MIMO mode will help ensure that wireless carriers will obtain the network capacity they need to support 4G data services,” said Chris Jurasek, vice president and general manager, Wireless and Services at TE.
