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.
