Why is beam management key to 5G?

5G millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum promises massive bandwidth and huge monetization potential for telcos. But 5G mmWave also introduces propagation challenges. 5G New Radio (NR) adds massive multiple-input multiple-output (mMIMO) support and utilizes beam management techniques to maximize throughput and device density to meet capacity needs for 5G mmWave User Equipment (UE).

Massive MIMO antennas, which increase data throughput and spectrum efficiency by adding transmit and receive elements to antennas, and high-frequency, high-capacity millimeter wave spectrum are both synonymous with 5G.
