Customer Premise Equipment (CPE)


Our advanced antenna technology helps operators reduce operating expenditures by using unique design methodologies for improving the wireless connectivity of in-home CPEs. Our custom wireless designs for gateways and set-top-boxes have been deployed by operators that span the globe. We work closely with leading OEM and ODM gateway providers to ensure that systems utilizing Airgain embedded antenna systems offer optimum performance and stellar connectivity. Not only do we help OEMs and ODMs add value, but we optimize performance so service providers can reduce unnecessary truck rolls and repeat service calls.

Performance Validation Services

Concurrent performance improvement is more important than ever before, and real-world performance testing, validation services, and device characterization have become essential for designing CPEs. We have been designing and evaluating wireless antenna solutions for 802.11-based wireless LAN devices from routers and gateways to set-top-boxesWe developed a set of proprietary performance metrics, measurement methodologies, and automated test conditions to enable accurate and repeatable characterization of the relative Over-the-Air (OTA) performance of 802.11-based WLAN devices from routers, gateways, and set top boxes, to smart TVs. Our benchmark testing accurately assesses device performance characteristics, enabling buyers to make informed decisions in selecting the best antenna solutions for their needs.


Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) Integration Process


Our extensive OTA test process utilizes industry-standard measurement tools and our proprietary implementation of the IEEE 802.11.2 Draft Recommended Practice for the Evaluation of 802.11 Wireless Performance. Our proprietary OTA testing process has been established as an industry leader for wireless throughput testing.  

Multi-Client Performance Improvement

Overcrowding of in-home Wi-Fi networks is making it increasingly difficult to anticipate and to optimize the performance and connectivity of multiple client devices. More operators are turning to us to help them assess the unique challenges of concurrent device network performance. Our proprietary technology provides automated and highly repeatable characterization of single- and multi-client wireless networking performance within tightly controlled residential test environments. Airgain test environments include specialized residential homes and offices, emulating our customer’s real-world applications and ensuring the capture of throughput and coverage performance metrics that are truly indicative of each device’s real-word performance and end customer experience.
