The next remarkable change in wireless communication ecosystem is the deployment of
5G networks. The 5G networks are targeted to deliver more than 1000X data rates and network
capacity compared to current systems. At least third of this increase is expected to come from the
radio hardware improvements. This indicates that with minor incremental improvements of
current hardware, the implementation of 5G networks and success on market is impossible. The
traditional design methodology of adding new frequency band variants is becoming obsolete due to
the required hardware flexibility, new functionality, and interference caused by the exponential
increase in the mobile device connectivity.
