Customer Premise Equipment (CPE)

Our advanced antenna technology helps operators reduce operating expenditures by incorporating unique design methodologies which improve the wireless connectivity of in-home CPEs.

Our custom wireless designs for gateways and set-top-boxes are deployed by telecommunication operators spanning the globe. We work closely with leading OEM and ODM gateway providers including telephone companies to ensure that systems leveraging Airgain embedded antenna systems offer optimum performance with stellar connectivity. Not only do we help OEMs and ODMs add value, but we optimize performance so service providers and telephone companies can reduce unnecessary truck rolls from their central office and repeated service calls in the field.

Performance Validation Services

Concurrent performance improvement has never been as valued as it is today. Additionally, real-world performance testing, validation services, and device characterization have become essential for designing CPEs.

Airgain continues to differentiate with above-the-line design and wireless antenna solutions evaluations for 802.11-based wireless Local Area Network LAN devices (from routers and gateways to set-top-boxes). In fact, we have even developed a set of proprietary performance metrics, measurement methodologies, and automated test conditions to enable accurate and repeatable characterization of the relative Over-the-Air (OTA) performance of 802.11-based WLAN devices – these include routers, gateways, and set top boxes, to smart TVs.

 

Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) Integration Process

Our benchmark testing accurately assesses device performance characteristics which enables buyers to make informed decisions when selecting the ideal antenna solutions for their needs.

Our extensive OTA test process incorporates industry-standard measurement tools with our proprietary implementation of the IEEE 802.11.2 Draft Recommended Practice for the Evaluation of 802.11 Wireless Performance. Our proprietary OTA testing process has been established as an industry leader for wireless throughput testing.

Multi-Client Performance Improvement

Overcrowding of in-home Wi-Fi networks had made anticipating and optimizing the performance and connectivity of multiple client devices in a physical location, increasingly difficult. Every day, operators are turning to Airgain to help them assess the unique challenges of concurrent device network performance.

To best serve their needs, we leverage our proprietary technology to provide automated and highly repeatable characterization of single- and multi-client wireless networking performance within tightly controlled residential test environments. Airgain test environments include specialized residential homes and offices, emulating our customers’ real-world applications. These efforts ensure that the capture of throughput and coverage performance metrics are truly indicative of each device’s real-word performance and end customer experience.

Regional Test Facilities

Our regional OTA test facilities replicate real-world performance in typical homes and offices while providing isolation from external RF and wireless interference. This low-noise environment is key when comparing and identifying the effect of various antenna and system designs on wireless throughput performance – essential to achieving our superior performance. We have multiple, dedicated test sites around the world, including North America, Asia Pacific, and the UK.

What Is Customer Premise Equipment (CPE)?

Many carriers and service providers rely on Customer Premise Equipment, also known as Customer Provided Equipment, to deliver their services remotely. Some of the most common types of CPE are Internet Modems, Cable Set Top Boxes, Alarm Systems, and more. This equipment is often purchased or leased by the end customer, and services are often provided by subscription.

Airgain specializes in designing, testing, and manufacturing antennas for CPE, and has extensive experience in the field.
