Cell-Free Massive MIMO

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Cell-free massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) is a system comprising a very large number of access points (hundreds or thousands of access points) and a relatively smaller number of active users (tens or hundreds of users) distributed over a large area. The access points use directly measured channel characteristics to jointly serve all users in the same time-frequency band. There are no cells or cell boundaries.
