The article focuses on the dilemma concerning the adoption of wireless network engineering. It has been claimed that migration to fourth generation (4G) technologies could worsen the dilemma faced by wireless data network engineers. In order to deliver promised data throughput rates, developers of 4G technologies need to provide high channel quality. Physical layer handling technologies, which are believed to be the solution, could only limit improvements in effective channel quality.
