Beamforming vs Precoding - What's the difference?

beamforming | precoding |


As nouns the difference between beamforming and precoding

is that beamforming is (physics) a technique in which the phase and amplitude of transmitted signals are modified, by a feedback process, in order to improve transmission speed while precoding is a form of beamforming that supports multi-layer radio transmissions.
