Multiple Input/Multiple Output

Multiple input/multiple output (MIMO) is multi-antenna wireless technology suitable for base stations and mobile devices that can increase throughput, system capacity and spectral efficiency, reduce fading and improve resistance to interference. It is being used in pre-standard 802.11n WLAN equipment and is likely to be adopted in WiMAX and future cellular standards.
