Ericsson and IBM are Teaming Up to Design a New 5G Antenna

In an endeavor to design a new 5G antenna, Ericsson and IBM are working together. The two companies will be performing collaborative research on designs for antennas that will provide 5G data speeds, which is "magnitudes" faster than what we have access to today.

The 5G antenna is being designed using phased-array techniques to create prototypes in an effort to serve more mobile phone carriers, offer new services on the same frequency and provide faster data speed that is on an entirely different level than what is currently available.

They are looking into this technology now, as Ericsson believes we can expect 2020 to be the year 5G will be standard and major rollouts will occur. Research, therefore, needs to be done now.
