alternative Massive MIMO Setup, IIT Hyderabad

Background

IIT Hyderabad, in collaboration with WiSig Networks has successfully developed and commercialized 5G technology, including an NB-IoT chipset. In the process, a wealth of new knowledge has been created. It is imperative that this knowledge be shared with as many young graduates in the country as possible in the shortest possible time.
