Every new network generation needs to make a leap in area data throughput, to manage the growing wireless data trafﬁc. The Massive MIMO technologycan bring at least ten-fold improvements in area throughput by increasing the spec-tral efﬁciency (bit/s/Hz/cell), while using the same bandwidth and density of basestations as in current networks. These extraordinary gains are achieved by equipping the base stations with arrays of a hundred antennas to enable spatial multiplexing of tens of user terminals. This chapter explains the basic motivations and communication theory behind the Massive MIMO technology, and provides implementation-related design guidelines.
