MIMO is a technology that utilizes multiple antennas at transmitter/receiver to improve the throughput, capacity and coverage of wireless system. Massive MIMO where Base Station is equipped with orders of magnitude more antennas have shown over 10 times spectral efficiency increase over MIMO with simpler signal processing algorithms. Massive MIMO has benefits of enhanced capacity, spectral and energy efficiency and it can be built by using low cost and low power components. Despite its potential benefits, this paper also summarizes some challenges faced by massive MIMO such as antenna spatial correlation and mutual coupling as well as non-linear hardware impairments. These challenges encountered in massive MIMO uncover new problems that need further investigation.
