Beamforming for MU-MIMO in 5G New Radio


In this webinar, you will learn about single- and multi-user MIMO in 5G NR, as well as common beamforming techniques and scenarios. We will cover different techniques to estimate the channel or channel information for beamforming purpose, how the UE communicates the necessary information back to the gNodeB, the different options for SU-MIMO vs MU-MIMO, and how to simulate a complete link with adaptive beamforming in MATLAB with 5G Toolbox.


  • When to use SU-MIMO vs MU-MIMO
  • Relationship between channel estimation and beamforming
  • The use of channel state information reference signals (CSI-RS) for beamforming purposes or beam refinement
  • Types of codebook feedback (Type I, Type II, eType II) and application to SU/MU-MIMO
  • Sounding reference signals (SRS) based beamforming on reciprocal channels (for TDD scenarios)

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
