Airgain Releases Fully Integrated Outdoor 5G FWA Reference Design with Optimized Antenna System, 5G NR Modem, Enterprise Software Management, and Easy Installation Kit
SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG) – a leading provider of wireless connectivity solutions, creating and delivering products that include embedded components, external antennas, and integrated systems across the globe – has announced the release of its outdoor 5G fixed wireless access (FWA) reference design that has been tested and validated with Airgain’s state-of-the-art RF testing and validation equipment. The design supports the latest 5G-NR 3GPP REL-16 standards with 4×4 MIMO on DL and 2×2 MIMO on UL and is designed to meet IP67 outdoor requirements. It also comes fully equipped with a software management stack powered by Errigal’s enterprise solution and a patent-pending easy installation kit that helps eliminate the need for professional installation.
The release of this reference design further strengthens Airgain’s leadership in designing and deploying FWA technologies. According to Zion Market Research, the global 5G FWA market is expected to exceed USD$23 billion by 2025, with a CAGR of over 97%. Airgain is a world leader in 5G FWA embedded antennas and has numerous deployed implementations. This new reference design broadens Airgain’s FWA offerings into 3 areas:
- Embedded Antennas – Airgain works with OEMs and ODMs to custom design high-performance embedded antennas for 5G FWA, including complete design reviews and testing to help ensure maximum coverage and signal.
- Standalone Antennas – Airgain develops standalone, multi-mount directional panel antennas with a combination of the highest gain at the lowest cost in the smallest form factor to enhance the coverage of deployed indoor FWA devices.
- Integrated Design – Airgain simplifies the process of bringing a full FWA device to market by offering an industrial design, a complete set of specifications, a bill of materials, a software management stack, and an easy installation kit guided by a mobile app.
“Fixed wireless access is experiencing exponential growth and Airgain is at the forefront of improving the end-user experience,” said Dr. Ali Sadri, Chief Technology Officer for Airgain, Inc. “While indoor fixed wireless access devices suffer from the penetration loss of walls and windows, Airgain’s fully integrated outdoor FWA reference design significantly improves performance, speeds up time-to-market and simplifies wireless implementation.”
Airgain will showcase a prototype of this new 5G FWA reference design at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on January 5-8 at booth #10955 in the IoT Pavilion.
