What is MIMO Wireless Technology?

MIMO – Multiple-Input Multiple-Output is a technology utilised in some WiFi products that uses multiple antennas to transmit and receive wireless signals; This usually leads to a stronger, more reliable signal when compared to single antenna alternatives.

MIMO is actually a combination of two technologies – SIMO (Single-Input Multiple-Output) and MISO (Multiple-Input Single-Output). When MIMO combines these two wireless systems, it does so by using multiple antennas to both send and receive signals. This usually leads to a stronger, more reliable signal when compared to single antenna alternatives.

So how do you take advantage of this technology when you are setting up your WiFi network at home or in your business? Luckily, LinITX.com offer a complete range of Ubiquiti wireless network and WiFi products that predominantly feature MIMO technology in various iterations.

We stock a comprehensive range of Unifi Access Points (that all use MIMO), alongside the Ubiquiti airMAX range of access points and bridges, if that doesn’t cover it, we also stock the complete range of Ubiquiti switches, including the popular Unifi Network Switches.

If any of our customers want more information or advice on how best to set up their wireless network to take advantage of MIMO technology, please give our expert sales team a call and we’d be delighted to make product suggestions for your specific install requirements.

    Surely the Ubiquiti AmpliFi HD Mesh WIFI system is MIMO also?

      Hi David,

      Thanks for your feedback. Yes, you are correct – the Ubiquiti AmpliFi HD Mesh WIFI uses MIMO technology, and comes highly recommended by us. There are many more Ubiquiti products that feature MIMO technology, perhaps too many to list in this short article.
