In this article we discuss the different multiple antenna techniques introduced in LTE-Advanced. Rather than describing the technical details of the adopted solutions, we approach the problem starting from the design targets and the antenna deployments prioritized by the operators. Then we present the main enabling solutions introduced for downlink and uplink transmissions, and subsequently assess the performance of these solutions in different scenarios. Finally, we discuss some possible future developments.
