Airgain Selected by TEKTELIC as Antenna Technology Partner to Pioneer a Cutting Edge LoRa Network

January 09, 2018

Airgain antenna technology to be used for carrier grade LoRaWAN™ antenna connectivity solutions to major US markets

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a global leader in wireless connectivity platforms, has been selected by leading manufacturer of LoRaWAN Internet of Things (IoT) Gateways, TEKTELIC Communications, as its antenna technology partner for its Carrier Grade LoRa antenna connectivity solutions. The Airgain antenna technology is paired with TEKTELIC’s Carrier Grade LoRaWAN Gateways and Sensors supporting high scalability and rapid network deployment, very long lifecycle and low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). TEKTELIC IoT Gateways have highly differentiated features such as Frequency Division Duplex, multiple concurrent Tx channels, built-in highly selective bandpass filters, and multiple Rx and Tx antennas which will benefit from Airgain’s antenna technology.

Airgain is providing TEKTELIC with a custom designed high performance IP-67 dual LoRa antenna solution for a U.S. nationwide LoRaWAN network. The antenna has been designed to meet stringent carrier-grade requirements, demanding radio frequency specifications, and full water immersion compliance. They are also designed to blend in seamlessly with urban furniture. Additionally, Airgain is supplying TEKTELIC with custom cabling, antennas and other RF solutions.

The first shipments of the antenna solutions commenced in late 2017, with volume production anticipated during the first half of 2018. Airgain was selected by TEKTELIC based on its RF expertise with Carrier and Enterprise Grade outdoor antenna solutions, as well as its experience in pioneering antenna solutions for LoRa gateways and smaller LoRa IoT devices such as sensors. Airgain is also a trusted supplier to major North American carriers of embedded LoRa, Wi-Fi, LTE, and other IoT antenna solutions for smart home gateways and set-top boxes.

Roman Nemish, President and Co-Founder of TEKTELIC, said: “Airgain with their proven antenna design expertise and technology are an ideal solution for TEKTELIC’s portfolio of Carrier Grade Gateways and IoT Sensors. We are very glad to be working with the Airgain team as they design and manufacture for TEKTELIC a large portfolio of LoRaWAN Gateway and Sensor antennas for global deployments.”

Chuck Myers, President and CEO of Airgain, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to partner with TEKTELIC in support of the U.S. nationwide and other large scale LoRaWAN network deployments. Through leveraging Airgain antenna expertise and technology, TEKTELIC is able to ensure the best RF coverage, availability, connectivity and RF performance of its customer’s LoRaWAN networks.”

TEKTELIC and Airgain are both strong proponents of the LoRaWAN standard, and members of the LoRa Alliance™, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the interoperability and standardization of Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) technologies to drive implementation of the IoT.
