Key Antenna Considerations In Designing Your Smart IoT Ecosystem

In partnership with TTI Asia

The complexities of antenna system design and the availability of more frequency bands afforded by 5G have made choosing an antenna for a smart device that much more challenging. System designs cannot rely on plug-and-play options, but instead require more sophisticated planning and a holistic assessment of all connectivity requirements. In a variety of IoT applications, an antenna will need to be customized and include two to 12 antenna products, all inside a minuscule device, like a mobile phone. These antennas must manage different redundancies and services while working clearly and independently from one another - a physical trick of isolating antennas within a system design.

Key Takeaways:

  • Examine technology advancements that influence the emergence of smart environments and applications
  • Identify challenges and requirements to develop the optimal IoT solution
  • Examine two major trends in IoT applications: smart tracking and smart buildings
  • Understand how to navigate through the complexities of antenna system design
