Carlsbad, CA, January 07, 2013 — Airgain, Inc., an industry leader of smart and embedded antenna technology, integration support, and test services for the in-home wireless device market, today announced that the company achieved record revenue and shipments growth in 2012. Sales of the company’s embedded antenna products have increased over 80 percent year over year, and the results continue a three year trend of annualized growth above 70 percent. Airgain enters the new year with strong momentum, having shipped over 40 million antennas in 2012 alone, into a variety of wireless set-top box, residential gateway, and home router products.

The company’s antennas are now found in end-user products deployed in carrier, enterprise, and residential wireless networks worldwide, ranging from advanced wireless receivers for IPTV video distribution to the industry’s first 802.11ac Wi-Fi dual-band gigabit routers. The company also introduced several innovative new designs for adjacent wireless connectivity markets, including enterprise class routers, cellular/LTE femtocells, and smart metering and M2M devices.
“With our unique engineering integration and services approach, Airgain has solidified its position as the leading provider of embedded antennas for the in-home WLAN market,” said Charles Myers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Airgain. “This was a phenomenal year for the company in both product sales and customer penetration. The growth in the demand for wireless connectivity continues to create a tremendous demand for our RF expertise to characterize, integrate, and validate wireless system performance of next generation devices. We look forward to sustained growth and increased market share in 2013 and beyond as Airgain successfully continues to expand its product offerings to industry-leading tier one customers.”
Airgain has been designing and evaluating wireless antenna solutions for 802.11-based WLAN devices since 2004.
