Massive MIMO 5G Migration Strategy
 TitanMIMO Series Configurations

 

Modular RF to Support 5G Research

Using a replaceable VITA 57 FMC radio module, the TitanMIMO-4 series is equipped with Radio420M software defined tunable radios (eg. WiFi & LTE) which are replaceable to support the bandwidth and RF tuning ranges required for 5G and millimeter waves.

Scalable, Mesh-Enabled Baseband Processing

With a central baseband processing engine that can scale from a single, powerful Virtex-6 (Perseus 6113) up to clusters of 8 or more (Kermode-XV6), the TitanMIMO-4 testbed series presents developers with the processing power needed to enable scalable algorithm development without the risk of hardware limitations.
