The new 5G frequency spectrum enables once overcrowded bandwidth to be avoided. This breakthrough allows for consistently higher speeds and reduces the impact of interference. 5G NR (5G New Radio) introduces different frequency ranges to accommodate for a wider range of uses.
5G mmWave will enable a dramatic shift in the capabilities of wireless connectivity. The development and testing of antenna systems to support higher frequencies presents a unique set of challenges – from the beamforming capabilities required in antennas to the propagation characteristics of mmWave bands.
As a leader in the antenna market and pioneer of new testing protocols, Airgain is heavily invested in the success of 5G through the development of antenna technology and products that support 5G FR1 and FR2 massive MIMO beamforming architecture to ensure our partners get the best real-world performance for their products.
Airgain’s new 5G NR FR1 antenna family features four innovative designs, including customizable solutions to match the needs of a range of equipment use cases.
A customizable add-on 5G NR high gain antenna array solution that offers flexible design options for embedded integrated or standalone applications. Multiple gain and bandwidth options for indoor or outdoor CPE 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 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.
Airgain’s new 5G and 60GHz WiGig 802.11ay laboratory is designed to rigorously test the challenges inherent in mmWave bands to quickly identify issues and enable fast design improvements. Our lab is engineered with the following key features:
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.
We have an amazing, private LTE network option available on the 3.5 GHz band.
The CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service)
The CBRS spectrum opens exciting new opportunities for enhanced signal coverage and capacity. This mid-band spectrum’s availability bridges the gap between public and private LTE networks, bringing connectivity to enterprise applications that require higher throughput and wider coverage.
The governing rules to access this new band, bring the power of LTE technology to small networks (where only Wi-Fi could recently compete). What’s more, Airgain developed the world’s first Over-the-Air test system to evaluate the performance of CBRS antennas embedded into consumer devices, featuring stop motion turntables and advanced automation. As a result, we have successfully integrated CBRS antenna systems across a wide range of applications.
Looking for a single feed antenna that offers CBRS + C Band coverage from 3.3 GHz to 4.2 GHz in a very compact form factor? Well, look no further than the Q-Series. This ‘Double Infinite Balun’ balanced antenna is designed to provide optimal performance in ‘noisy’ device enclosures, complete with built-in noise rejection.
The add-on 5G NR external antenna series, offering both high performance low- and high-gain design to support both indoor and outdoor applications. It is ideal for small cell, indoor or outdoor CPE solutions.
A truly customizable add-on 5G NR high gain antenna array solution – one that offers flexible design options for embedded integrated or standalone applications, as well as multiple gain and bandwidth options for indoor or outdoor CPE solutions.
