Multi-Antenna Technology to Feed Data-Hungry Smartphones
Added Mar 5, 2013 | Rate View top rated
Demand for wireless data is projected to increase 18-fold in the next five years due to the growing popularity of data-hungry smartphones and tablets. To help meet the challenge, wireless researchers from Rice University, Bell Labs, and Yale University are creating Argos - a multi-antenna technology that aims to dramatically increase network capacity by allowing cell towers to simultaneously serve dozens of customers on the same frequency. The 64-antenna Argos prototype is capable of simultaneously beaming signals to 15 users on the same frequency.
