Claim of US Patent No. 11,115,106


7. A system for selecting between multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) and carrier aggregation modes of operation in a wireless network, the system comprising:a processing node; and
a processor coupled to the processing node, the processor configured to perform operations comprising:
determining that a predicted MIMO pairing efficiency of a sector in the wireless network meets a threshold, wherein inter-band carrier aggregation is enabled within the sector;
responsive to determining that the predicted MIMO pairing efficiency meets the threshold, disabling inter-band carrier aggregation in the sector; and
enabling the MIMO mode of operation within the sector.
