Airgain announced that it has been awarded the Andrew Seybold Award for Technology Innovation by the Public Safety Broadband Technology Association (PSBTA). The award was announced at the 10-Year Anniversary Celebration for FirstNet®, hosted by the PSBTA, the Public Safety Spectrum Alliance (PSSA), and All Things FirstNet. FirstNet® is the only nationwide wireless broadband communications network dedicated to America’s first responders and public safety community. It was created through legislation signed in 2012 by President Barack Obama and built out through a public-private partnership between the First Responder Network Authority and AT&T.

Public Safety Broadband Technology Association Innovation Award

 The AirgainConnect FirstNet Ready™ AC-HPUE high power user equipment (HPUE) built for FirstNet® MegaRange™, delivers the maximum allowed radiated power directly to the LTE antenna elements. The uplink signal is the weakest link in the LTE connection, which can be problematic in fringe coverage areas or inside buildings such as parking structures. When the uplink is disconnected, the user gets no service in the downlink. AirgainConnect’s patented technology eliminates the loss over the coax cables from the vehicle router to the roof-mounted antenna, providing 10 times the transmit power when compared to the router’s conventional modem. The result is deeper building penetration and higher uplink data speeds at the edge of the network. 

AirgainConnect AC-HPUE 6-in-1 is a rugged outdoor mobile antenna with an integrated Cat-12 LTE modem, designed to meet the most demanding connectivity needs of public safety and fleet vehicles. AC-HPUE provides two high gain multi-band LTE antennas and one band 14 LTE antenna powered by an HPUE LTE modem. AC-HPUE also supports two high gain tri-band Wi-Fi antennas (with support for Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E, and Wi-Fi 7), and an active GNSS element inside a single robust and compact housing. 

AC-HPUE attaches to the router WAN port via Ethernet data cable or directly to a laptop via USB cable. Wi-Fi and GNSS antennas connect to the router just like all other Airgain fleet antennas. This means your router can be seamlessly used for Wi-Fi, and location-based services, and managed using your existing network management system.
