one6G Open Lecture 8 – Next Generation MIMO

Couple of weeks back one6G hosted the long-anticipated Open Lecture 8 on 'Next Generation MIMO' where they brought together four top-class speakers who presented and discussed important results, new possibilities, and open questions regarding the standardization and commercialization of this new technology. Quoting from the event page:

MIMO technologies are a cornerstone in the evolution of mobile radio systems toward improved spectral and energy efficiency. This is an important prerequisite for new use cases and business opportunities. The long-anticipated Open Lecture 8 provided an overview of some important trends and basic principles, including MIMO scheduling to give each user a fair share of the total throughput. The development of cell-free systems was also discussed, with the latest results on fronthaul load balancing and flexible user-centric clustering. The speakers also talked about how larger MIMO configurations and higher frequencies push wireless communications into the radiative near field, which allows a further increase in data rates. Finally, Open Lecture 8 provided insights into fluid antenna systems, which have the potential to enhance communication performance by flexibly adapting their position and shape.

The video of the lecture as follows:
