mMIMO Platform Available at POWDER

The RENEW mMIMO platform is available outdoors at POWDER. In collaboration with the University of Utah, we have deployed a new massive MIMO base station and multiple clients, outdoors. This latest deployment is comprised of a 64-antenna massive MIMO base station and two 2x2 MIMO User Equipment (UE) devices. In the next few weeks we will deploy four other UEs, for a total of six. Currently, this setup operates in a portion of the CBRS band (i.e., 3550 MHz to 3600 MHz). Our initial deployment inside the anechoic chamber continues to be available until further notice.
