Alliance Will Help Enhance Throughput Performance of Consumer Premises Equipment
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS–(Marketwired – September 12, 2013) – IBC Amsterdam – Ubee Interactive and Airgain, Inc. today announced a collaboration where Ubee Interactive will utilize Airgain’s embedded antennas, integration, testing, and wireless optimization methodology to help enhance the performance of Ubee Interactive’s Wi-Fi enabled devices. The wireless performance of home Consumer Premises Equipment (CPE) has become critical as operators in Europe look for their vendors to help build the most reliable Wi-Fi enabled devices.
Accelerated technology standards such as IEEE 802.11ac are being driven by consumer demands for increased bandwidth in data and video connectivity products. Wi-Fi can no longer be optional as many operators use Wi-Fi performance as part of their differentiated value when selling to consumers. Further, a dense number of homes in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa use brick wall infrastructure which rarely provides an ideal environment for optimum wireless performance. In teaming with Airgain, Ubee Interactive will build highly intelligent products for home gateway solutions in order to address consumer demands and impeding residential environments.
“Airgain is a leader in throughput-focused embedded antenna technology for whole home wireless devices such as gateways,” said Gilles Guittard, Vice President, Telco – EMEA – Ubee Interactive. “This collaboration with Airgain will complement Ubee research and development efforts and empower Ubee to deliver exceptional Wi-Fi performance to European customers as they begin their migration to the IEEE 802.11ac standard.”
Charles Myers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Airgain, said, “Operators are now looking at Wi-Fi as a mandatory mechanism to deliver not only data but video traffic as well. We are delighted to help Ubee build the best wireless-enabled CPEs that provide optimum range and throughput performance.”
