Good start. Perhaps future generations will have an antenna architecture more representative of the narrower and electronically steerable beams that will be used in actual systems. For example phased arrays or lens antenna arrays (one developed at UW-Madison shown below).

Related: the first real-time demonstration of a 28 GHz multi-beam (4×2) multliuser MIMO prototype was done at the UW-Madison a year earlier on May 4, 2016. The UW-Madison prototype uses a lens array based architecture, as opposed to a phased array architecture in the NI prototype (and virtually all existing prototypes).
