Smart antenna arrays use MIMO (Multiple Input / Multiple Output) at both the source (sender) and destination (receiver) to improve signal quality. This is in contrast to non-array systems, which use a single antenna (and a single signal path) at the source and destination. The smart antenna market is nothing new as it offers efficient coverage for 2G, 3G and LTE. However, 5G smart antennas will be required to provide mobility support for many new and improved apps and services such as virtual reality, self-driving cars, connected vehicles and voice over 5G.

The story goes on

Smart antennas improve 5G coverage and optimize capacity by focusing RF signals where they are most needed. In addition, smart antennas improve the mobility of 5G applications and services by enabling more continuous connectivity, which can be especially useful with 5G cover seams. Otherwise, a 5G-enabled user experience may be degraded when a handover from 5G to LTE occurs.

5G cellular networks promise to improve many aspects of wireless communication, support improved mobile services, greater scalability for IoT systems and highly reliable communication for business-critical applications. Part of these benefits are based on the development of 4G LTE technologies as well as the unique capabilities of 5G New Radio (5GNR) based on a new infrastructure that supports millimeter wave RAN (mmWave) devices.
