The article focuses on advantage of the virtual antenna array for the mobile signal technology. According to British researchers, mobile phone signal capacity could escalate with better quality video and quicker file downloads if handsets in a local area work together. A team at King's College London plans to test the hardware and algorithms needed to make the virtual antenna array that allows handsets to transmit and receive heavy amounts of data by sharing packets via other mobiles close by. The array will use low-power short-range communication such as Bluetooth or ultra-wideband to allow antennas to work in concert.
