The Role of Antenna Quality in Meeting Mobile Data Demand

Fueled by the ever-increasing popularity of smartphones and tablets, along with the emergence of IoT (Internet of Things), wireless communication has experienced explosive growth over the past decade. Still, some experts predict to see an exponential, 1000-fold increase in mobile data traffic between 2010 and 2020.

The wireless industry as a whole has taken on the challenge of cost-effectively supporting this increase, with service providers struggling to deliver enough bandwidth to meet consumer demand. This white paper will explore the factors driving this trend, the challenges faced by wireless carriers in keeping up with demand, and highlight the importance of antenna quality in developing a long-term solution for addressing these challenges.
