Massive multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO), which refers to the practice of employing a large number of antennas at a base station to achieve better spectral efficiency using the same time and frequency resources, has received extensive interest as a potential solution for a next-generation cellular system. Presented herein are techniques to optimize a MIMO antenna configuration in order to reduce power consumption (and therefore operation cost) in a next-generation cellular network, paving the way to an energy-efficient wireless network.
