Technology Overview

Airgain’s core competency is designing and integrating high performance smart, throughput optimized, advanced antenna technology.

Evolving Technology Needs

In order to satisfy the rapidly evolving technology needs of the industry, we have remained a leading provider of next generation development including solutions for Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MIMO), Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO), short range wireless technologies, beam forming, and active antenna technology. Our design approach considers antennas as systems in conjunction with their enclosure, electronics, and most importantly their intended operating environment. In addition, we have expansive expertise in the testing and benchmarking of wireless systems and devices.

We develop our own antennas for a broad range of applications and technologies, including:

  • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax (Wi-Fi 4/5/6/6E)
  • Sub 6GHz 5G (CBRS)
  • LTE (3G/4G)
  • LPD (433MHz RF remote)
  • Bluetooth
  • ZigBee
  • Z-Wave

A Leading Provider in the Residential WLAN Market

Leading Carriers, OEMs, ODMs, and system designers depend on Airgain to achieve their wireless performance goals.

Wireless System Complexity

Our customers demand an ever increasing number of antennas per device and increasing antenna system complexity in support of the evolving and new ways to wirelessly connect. 802.11 standards are expanding and evolving in terms of multi-carrier and multi user MIMO schemes, with a path to higher efficiency WLAN through Wi-Fi 6 and 6E (802.11ax), as well as through the introduction of new frequency bands through Wi-Fi Halo™, WiGig, and White-Fi. Short range wireless technologies such as Z-Wave and ZigBee continue to evolve while they gain popularity within the HAN (Home Area Network) space, for applications such as home automation, security, and remote control.

As the number of wireless standards and antennas per device increases, the technical challenges for the antenna system increase such as co-existence and isolation. With our unique and innovative integration technology, we have developed ways to integrate additional antennas for optimal antenna performance while minimizing the effects on isolation. Particularly with MIMO 4×4 and MIMO 8×8 technology, we are able to achieve high output and performance of Wi-Fi 802.11 ac/n, reliability, range, and coverage, with our role in optimal beam forming.

Beamforming Technology

Our beamforming technology and process allows us to direct antenna array energy associated with multiple data streams, in independent spatial directions, while simultaneously minimizing interference. With the trend of unified communications, WLAN traffic requires more predictable and reliable throughput for improved signal reception to the client. The MaxBeam antenna line utilizes our patented beam forming technology for mitigating RF interference and intelligent routing of high capacity data over the best available signal paths. Our beam forming technology employs a smarter use of standard antenna elements to produce increased coverage and gain without the added cost of additional hardware.
