Airgain Introduces Miniaturized Embedded LTE Antennas for Smart Home and LPWAN Applications

September 12, 2017

Delivering efficiency and seamless integration for set-top-box and gateway deployments as well as LPWAN technologies including CAT-M1, LoRa, and NB-IoT

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a leading provider of embedded antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking, today introduced the Profile Contour Embedded series of new ultra wide-band miniaturized antennas, to provide LTE connectivity to the smart home and emerging Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) applications, including Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Targeting set-top-box and gateway deployments as well as LPWAN applications including CAT-M1, LoRa, and NB-IoT, the latest LTE embedded antennas from Airgain utilize an efficient flexible polymer-based low profile design optimized for confined designs and robust assembly variations. Available now, the antennas require minimal incremental integration effort, minimizing the cost and complexity typically associated with embedded antenna system integration. These antennas provide market-leading performance for shorter cable lengths in the lower LTE frequency ranges, making them ideal for LPWAN applications.

With four billion Internet of Things devices expected to rely on LPWANs by 2025, these miniaturized LTE antennas from Airgain will help drive proliferation in LPWAN technology, which is forecasted to be the fastest growing connectivity segment in the market through to 20251. Airgain’s expertise and innovation in enabling high performance wireless networking will support environments including smart homes, smart cities, smart buildings, and IIoT applications as they embrace LPWAN.

“The demand for the best connectivity everywhere and on everything is transforming whole industries,” said Airgain President and Chief Executive Officer, Charles Myers. "We are seeing increasing demand for LTE in our traditional set-top-box business as the smart home becomes a reality, while high growth forecasted in IIoT applications is driving the proliferation in technologies such as LPWAN. In this environment, an antenna which is small, easily integrated and cost effective is fundamental, which is why we have introduced this series of miniaturized embedded LTE antennas. Airgain is enabling the high performance wireless connectivity required as industries connect the unconnected.”

With multiple applications, this latest series of embedded antennas for LTE and LPWAN from Airgain expands its existing Profile Contour embedded antenna product line. This builds on Airgain’s patented antenna technology it has built over more than a decade in delivering best-in-class wireless connectivity through embedded antenna design and integration innovation.

Airgain will be attending MWC Americas 2017 in San Francisco, from September 12-14, as well as IBC 2017, in Amsterdam, from September 15-19. Visit the LoRa Alliance stand, N.620, at MWC 2017 and stand 15.MS3 at IBC 2017 to view product demonstrations and discuss its latest technology offerings. Airgain's latest innovations for multi-gigabit Wi-Fi, LTE, LPWAN, and more will be on display.
