Title: Reducing wireless communication latency

Abstract: In systems and methods of reducing latency in a wireless communication system, a first signal of a first radio access technology and a second signal of a second radio access technology are received at a first antenna and a second antenna of a wireless device. From a first circulator the first signal received at the first antenna and the second antenna are received and combined to generate a combined first signal. In addition, from a second circulator the second signal received at the first antenna and the second antenna are received and combined to generate a combined second signal.
