Multiple input multiple output explained
What is all the buzz about MIMO?
MIMO stands for multiple input multiple output.
With 802.11N all the shortcomings of 802.11 A/B/G which used SISO (Single Input Signal Output) are now used in the favour of the network.
Reflection, Absorption, Refraction, Diffraction and Scattering are used by MIMO to serve as multiple streams of DATA to be transferred between devices. 802.11N is a game changer to the deployment of wireless networks in environments such as manufacturing, warehouse and other challenging environments where A/B/G deployments struggled with multi-path caused by Reflection, Absorption, Refraction, Diffraction. LTE also takes advantages of MIMO.
