Massive MIMO AAS for 5G
To meet the challenges of 5G, NEC is developing a full digital controlled massive-element antenna for C-RAN based small cells operating in lower SHF bands. NEC has designed its 5G Radio Unit (RU) as Active Antenna array System (AAS) which is consisting of RF front end and massive-element antenna in order to realize the miniaturization and high-efficiency.
- RF front end integrated massive-element antenna
- 4x8 matrix of antenna elements with dual cross polarization
- Several AAS can be concatenated as one large scale massive-element antenna to enhance beamforming and multiplexing capabilities
- small size, light weight
