What is beamforming? Beamforming is a signal processing technique that uses the multiple antennas available with massive MIMO (MIMO) to create a focused signal (or beam) between an antenna and specific user equipment. Signals can be controlled by modifying the magnitude and phase giving the ability for the antenna to focus on specific users. This concept can be compared to a music concert where a spotlight is focused on specific performers onstage. To learn more, read our blog ‘RF and 5G new radio: top 5 questions answered’.
