Massive MIMO: from channel, antennas and SDR towards user fairness

Abstract: Massive MIMO is widely seen a s promising kandidate for 5G as it promises high throughput, long range, low cost or power consumption, and perfect fairness among users. We will introduce the key principles behind Massive MIMO, and highlight the main assumptions that underly it's world record performance. Then, implementation aspects will be discussed going from the signal processing algorithms to the antennas. By looking at the real measured performance as function of various implementation choices, such as the antenna elements, we will shed some new light on Massive MIMO.

Sofie Pollin obtained her PhD degree at KU Leuven with honors in 2006. From 2006-2008 she continued her research on wireless communication, energy-efficient networks, cross-layer design, coexistence and cognitive radio at UC Berkeley. In November 2008 she returned to imec to become a principal scientist in the green radio team. Since 2012, she is tenure track assistant professor at the electrical engineering department at KU Leuven. Her research centers around Networked Systems that require networks that are ever more dense, heterogeneous, battery powered and spectrum constrained. Prof. Pollin is BAEF and Marie Curie fellow, and IEEE senior member.
