Should Cellular Industry Rethink the Uplink/Downlink Asymmetry to Lower 5G Radio Network Cost?

Report Summary:

Massive MIMO and Multi-Site Coordination are thought of as key technologies to extend 5G cell coverage and lower deployment cost. But these technologies mainly focus on the downlink. To improve 5G uplink capacity, it may be a time for the cellular industry to consider Supplemental Uplink.
