  • The Wi-Fi antenna that Ericsson built into the glass pane of a window is barely visible as a faint red diamond shape near the bottom of the window.

  • At CTIA Wireless, Ericsson showed off a window with a Wi-Fi antenna built into the glass.

  • In its booth at CTIA Wireless, Ericsson showed off two experimental windows with built-in wireless antennas. They were flanked by existing technologies: A window with electronic shading, left, and a window with a built-in touchscreen display.
