Off-the-shelf antennas

A variety of different antennas is available for terminal devices. Using off-the-shelf antennas is highly recommended due to the verified proof of concept performance, reduced antenna design costs, and design support provided by antenna manufacturers. Some antenna vendors also offer antenna tuning and testing on customer devices.

Some examples of antennas from different vendors are listed in Examples of off-the-shelf antennas. These antennas have typical terminal antenna performance and can be used as a reference when selecting an antenna. To reach good antenna performance, the layout and placement recommendations in the antenna datasheets should be followed.
