The rapid development of MIMO technology in the area of wireless communications is to setting up of base stations with large number of antennas to improvements in energy and spectral efficiency. In this paper a detailed survey on massive technology, its advantages and comparison with existing method are proposed. The Long Term Evolution (LTE) has been designed to support only packet-switched services and is aimed to provide IP connectivity between UE and eNodeB. As we move forward to5G becoming more promising next generation technology with increase in capacity, reduced latencies, support of very high frequencies (mmWave) with a smaller size single antenna, smaller the aperture for receiving energy. To overcome this small aperture on receiver side at high frequency, we need to use a large number of transmission antenna. This would be the main reason to use the Massive Multiple Input Multiple Outputs (MIMO).This paper focused on the massive MIMO performance, the gain, and return losses of different antennas operating at different frequencies.
