Stories by Michael Lorenz

Michael Lorenz's ambition is to be a pioneer. The Senior Applications Engineer is always keen to put his hands on the latest technologies and features. When Michael entered the field of mobile communications 15 years ago, Vodafone Germany had just implemented its first 3G test network. After many fundamental research and optimization projects, the technical adventurer with a PhD in physics moved on to Vodafone Group, where he shared his expertise as a trainer in more than 20 markets. Stimulated more by the "why" than the "what", Michael sees himself playing with NB-IoT today and with 5G tomorrow.

How 4×4 MIMO can boost your mobile network

July 4, 2018 | by Michael Lorenz

Network densification and the introduction of new frequencies are cost-intensive and time-consuming. Could the implementation of higher-order MIMO features into existing radio networks meet the inexorable demand for more data volume? And how does 4x4 MIMO boost data rates and deliver additional capacity gain, thereby improving legacy LTE networks?
