3GPP Evolution for MIMO

3GPP Specification, 5G, 5G Network Planning, 5G NR, 5G Physical Layer, NR, RF Optimisation

Released 3GPP standards on MIMO are shown in below image. As you know, Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) is a type of Cooperative MIMO, in which data and channel state information (CSI) are shared among neighbor BSs to coordinate their transmissions. Moreover, “TM” is abbreviated form of Transmission Mode and various aspects of MIMO including Open and Closed loop spatial multiplexing, beamforming, MU MIMO and multilayer transmission are discussed through TM1 to TM9. Besides, “TR 37.976 , TS 38.151” documents on radiated performance for MIMO and “NR and UE MIMO performance requirements” are fruitful for those of you who enjoy reading 3GPP specifications.

Below are referred specs in the image. Add more in the comments below if you know more released documents on MIMO by 3GPP.
