Course Overview

This three-week, self-paced course provides a technical introduction to MIMO and beamforming in 5G. You will learn the role of antennas in wireless communications, the evolution of antenna techniques, and the difference between passive and active antenna systems. Additionally, the concepts of MIMO and Massive MIMO will be explained along with the utilization of SU-MIMO and MU-MIMO to increase throughput and capacity, respectively, in wireless systems. Lastly, you will learn the types of beams used in 5G NR and the techniques used to produce them as well as beam management techniques such as beam sweeping, beam selection, beam switching and beam failure recovery so that you are better equipped to configure beamforming parameters and monitor beam performance.
