Airgain Announces Smart Switchable Embedded Antenna Solution

February 28, 2017

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/28/17 -- Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a leading provider of embedded antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking, today introduced the latest addition to its smart antenna product line, the MaxBeam smart switchable embedded antenna, N5X20Q1SW.

Available today, the Airgain patent pending N5X20Q1SW smart antenna brings together multiple technologies including a near perfectly balanced antenna design and an electronically selectable complementary radiation pattern multi-element. Unlike most smart Wi-Fi antennas, the N5X20Q1SW control logic shares the same coaxial feeder cable with the RF (radio frequency) signal, avoiding cost and complexity of additional dedicated connections. Designed to support 2:1 smart antenna or MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) diversity systems for embedded Wi-Fi and ISM band applications such as smart home connectivity gateways, set-top-boxes, and enterprise Wi-Fi systems, the N5X20Q1SW provides optimal performance, cost, and ease of integration.

Airgain has designed the MaxBeam smart switchable antennas to improve Wi-Fi system coverage by enabling signals to be steered dynamically to devices within the wireless network, making good Wi-Fi coverage less dependent on the location and orientation of devices. MaxBeam antennas target improvements in user experience during the installation and operation of Wi-Fi systems, helping to reduce support costs associated with poor Wi-Fi coverage.

"This latest innovation targets the further reduction in complexity and cost of implementing smart antennas," said Airgain President and Chief Executive Officer, Chuck Myers. "Our optimally balanced antenna enhances control over key antenna performance figures such as receive signal level and peak gain, while easing antenna integration. Avoiding the need for dedicated control wires to drive this smart antenna is a game changer in reducing cost. Shortening the development time and reduction of cost are significant advantages for these antennas."

Airgain will be attending Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain from February 28 to March 2, 2017. We invite you to meet with us to discuss our latest technology offerings including our new MaxBeam smart switchable N5X20Q1SW embedded antenna and other connectivity solutions.
