Samsung and Airgain Deliver Superior Connectivity for North American Cable Operator
Sep. 05, 2018
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 5, 2018--Airgain, Inc. ( NASDAQ: AIRG ), a leading provider of advanced antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking across a broad range of devices and markets, including connected home, enterprise, automotive, and Internet of Things (IoT), today announced it was chosen by Samsung Electronics Co Ltd., to provide embedded antenna technology for Samsung’s next generation GX-MC990CL router. The new router has been showing its capabilities during field trials and initial customer roll-outs with a large North American cable operator, with resulting high levels of user satisfaction.
Samsung’s DOCSIS 3.1 capable GX-MC990CL router utilizes an advanced embedded antenna solution, supporting dual band, 4x4 5GHz multiuser Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MU-MiMo) and 3x3 2.4GHz MiMo Wi-Fi. Airgain’s antenna design allows the GX-MC990CL to achieve powerful throughput and coverage while maintaining a small, sophisticated form factor.
“After evaluating other options, we selected Airgain as our antenna design partner because of the Airgain team’s ability to deliver optimal real-world performance within tight design parameters,” said Bright Seo, Director of R&D at Samsung Electronics. “Consumers demand the very best from modern media and networking products, and meeting those demands is challenging due to the increasing complexity of the devices. However, with Airgain’s contributions, the GX-MC990CL has proven able to achieve the superior performance needed.”
“We are delighted to work with Samsung to help them deliver networking products to their customers that more than meet heightened consumer expectations,” said Jacob Suen, Senior Vice President at Airgain. “The proliferation of radios combined with restricted space requirements seen in the latest routers create many challenges. However, our design, engineering, and test teams were able to work closely with Samsung to deliver an optimal design that has now proven itself in the field.”
The collaboration with Samsung is another example of Airgain’s ability to provide high performance solutions for products that rely on powerful connectivity. Airgain engineers and design specialists continue to work closely with major carriers, chipset suppliers, OEMs, and ODMs, ensuring that antenna design is closely integrated with complete product solutions, and high-performance connectivity is delivered regardless of the environment.
