What enables an antenna to be MIMO

I saw the ANT-5010 is a 2 x MIMO antenna. But when you look at it, it is a kit of 2 standard 10dBi omnidirectional antennas being one with vertical polarization and another one with horizontal polarization.

So I got this question: What makes this "kit" a 2 x MIMO, is it just by having vertical/horizontal polarization?

 

I guess the key question here is: What makes an antenna a MIMO one?

 

Thanks,

Re: What enables an antenna to be MIMO

In a nutshell, sending two different signals out each connector or possibly in your example the same signal with different polarization at the antenna.
