Multi-Antenna Technology Compact Antenna Solutions

This document provides the solutions of compact antenna to reduce the difficulty of antenna deployment for information sharing. This deliverable focuses on the conclusion and summary of some basic modes from operators and vendors experiences. This document includes basic mode and compact mode with 2 interface innovation extensions. BMA and MCIC are two interface extensions for improving the performance of interface between antenna and RRU (Remote Radio Unit). The compact solution is the combination of basic mode and interface improvement in urban/dense urban. The intention is to provide a specific, yet generic, description of basic modes for compact antenna features.
