Abstract

Antenna is one of the most important single part of a wireless communications system and significantly affects the total energy consumption. Current mobile antennas can be inefficient in both converting radio energy to radiating waves and also focusing the radiated waves. The upcoming 5G introduces additional challenges to antennas but could also provide opportunities to use RF energy more efficiently. This paper discusses 5G antenna challenges and presents two potential antenna solutions for 5G mobile devices and one for mm-wave access points.
