re: LTE reception boosted by MEMS device

So this technology uses MEMS to fabricate ultra-tiny replacements for electromechanical relays? Does this mean that other proven technologies such as PIN diodes are not feasible at these frequencies and/or power levels, perhaps due to a high level of "stray" capacitance? Why not "tune" the circuits using varactor diodes to vary capacitance, is it technology or just an IP licensing issue? The context fails to clarify the matter.
