How massive MIMO challenges 5G base station testing

Presented By Meik Kottkamp and Ezer Bennour

Webinar: How massive MIMO challenges 5G base station testing (EU/APAC)

Massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO) antenna systems and beamforming are no doubt the key enablers and fundamental components of 5G deployment. They improve the end-user experience, network capacity and coverage and ultimately contribute to high spectral efficiency. This webinar explains the MIMO techniques used in today’s commercially deployed networks. It further discusses the latest MIMO enhancements specified in 3GPP Release 16, finalized in June 2020. The webinar also demonstrates how to apply Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscopes for testing phase-coherent 5G MIMO signals during the development of 5G base stations and small cells in the lab.


Ezer Bennour is a product manager within the oscilloscope department at Rohde & Schwarz. His main focus is on RF applications for high-end oscilloscopes. Before joining Rohde & Schwarz in 2019, he had gained experience as an application engineer with a special focus on modular RF instruments. Ezer holds a diploma degree in electrical engineering from the University of Stuttgart in Germany.
