High Performance 5G Antenna Solutions

The Airgain 5G Product Family

New 5G frequency spectrum will enable overcrowded bandwidth to be avoided, allowing for higher speeds and reducing the impact of interference. 5G NR introduces different frequency ranges, FR1 that includes sub-6Ghz frequency bands (including CBRS and LAA), and FR2 that includes millimeter wave (mmWave) frequency bands from 24.25GHz to 52.6GHz along beamforming antenna arrays for spatial multiplexing. 5G mmWave will enable a dramatic shift in the capabilities of wireless connectivity. Development and testing of antennas to support the higher frequencies presents a unique set of challenges – from the beamforming capabilities required in antennas to the propagation characteristics of mmWave bands.

As a market leader in the antenna market, and a pioneer of new testing protocols, Airgain is heavily invested in the success of 5G through the development of antenna technology and products supporting 5G FR1 and FR2 massive MIMO beamforming architecture to ensure our partners get the best real-world performance for their products.

5G NR Wave Bands

Custom and Integrated 5G NR Antenna Solutions

Airgain’s new 5G NR FR1 antenna family features four new designs, including customizable solutions to match the needs of a range of equipment use cases

Airgain High Band (mmWave) Solutions

The ability to connect ultra high band data rates from outside a home or building to the inside is a key challenge for 5G mmWave technology. Airgain’s mmWave design portfolio provides multiple Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) solutions to help solve last meter challenges.

Airgain and MaxLinear AirPHY

Airgain and MaxLinear have collaborated to provide solutions for penetrating building walls and energy efficient windows with low-e metallic coatings. Utilizing Airgain’s compact antenna solution, MaxLinear’s AirPHY system combines antennas on both sides of a wall or glass to provide near field coupling. This eliminates the need for broadband service providers to drill holes into their customer’s home for multi-gigabit 5G fixed wireless data connections.

5G mmWave Testing Capability

Airgain’s new 5G and 60GHz WiGig 802.11ay laboratory is designed to rigorously test the challenges inherent in mmWave bands in order to quickly identify issues and enable fast design improvements. Our lab is engineered with the following key features:

  • mmWave radio performance testing from 24 GHz to 65 GHz
  • Capabilities to test the full range of mmWave systems (including fixed and adaptive beamforming arrays) for small cells, enterprise access points, fixed wireless access, and CPE
  • The test chamber provides S-parameter, gain, polarization, and a wealth of other radiation pattern characteristics for both free space and embedded antennas

The 5G mmWave test lab ensures our partners get the best real-world performance from their antenna designs by leveraging Airgain’s state-of-the-art test facilities and protocols.
