The article offers information on next generation networks and its demands on antenna systems architecture. With the introduction of devices that use high speed 4G networks, which is deployed on different frequency bands, to the market, the existing antenna systems require modifications and upgrades to maintain the same level of service as compared to 2G and 3G networks. The continued success of 4G technology depends on the development of 4G devices and the networks they use.
