MIMO and beamforming provide increased data rates than you can get using single, omnidirectional signals. Antennas convert between radio waves propagating through space and electric currents moving in a metal conductor. In early communication system, antennas were often quite simple, perhaps just a half-wave dipole constructed of wire. We usually just had one antenna per…
