Demand for wireless data is projected to increase 18-fold in the next five years due to the growing popularity of data-hungry smartphones and tablets. To help meet the challenge, wireless researchers from Rice University, Bell Labs and Yale University are creating Argos, a multi-antenna technology that aims to dramatically increase network capacity by allowing cell towers to simultaneously serve dozens of customers on the same frequency. In August 2012, Rice unveiled a 64-antenna Argos prototype capable of simultaneously beaming signals to 15 users on the same frequency.
