• Acronym: DiMa-MIMO
  • Short description: DiMa-MIMO testbed has as  a unique feature 64-antennas  from the BS distributed into two separate patch antenna arrays of  equal size. With this testbed it is possible to obtain channel measurements for indoor and outdoor scenarios. The channel collection is available  for uplink and downlink at <1GHz, 2.6 and 3.5GHz.
