SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 12, 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 the release of its OptumX antenna.

The OptumX builds on Airgain’s antenna design expertise to deliver a high-performance, ultra-wide-band dual-LTE MIMO solution in the small, robust form-factor, commonly referred to as a ‘shot-glass’ or ‘salt and pepper shaker’ antenna. The OptumX utilizes patent pending technology to enable dual MIMO antennas to operate in very close proximity within the single enclosure, overcoming key technical hurdles including MIMO antenna isolation. The OptumX is tailored to the needs of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) applications with often restricted exterior mounting options and a need to keep installation costs to a minimum. IIoT and M2M solutions have previously been required to choose between the increased cost of using two separate antennas, or to use large and often unsightly antennas designed for different uses.

As a shock-resistant, low-profile antenna with a smaller footprint than competitive solutions and a strong, bolt-mount base, the OptumX is built to meet the specific needs of IIoT and M2M users, providing cost-effective high-performance connectivity for IIoT and M2M applications. The OptumX is designed to blend in, but is also built to Airgain’s exacting standards, providing exceptional protection against UV and natural hazards and helping ensure reliable operation.

“Before today, users have been forced to use solutions that are either too bulky or require multiple enclosures to get the performance they need for their IIoT and M2M applications,” said Reed Pangborn, Airgain’s Vice President of Channel Sales for North America. “The new OptumX delivers two LTE antennas in a single, innovative enclosure that significantly shrinks the real estate needed for installation and use.”

Availability

The OptumX antenna can be ordered in either black or white and will be available in November through our trusted channel partners or direct at 1-855-AIRGAIN. As with other Antenna Plus portfolio products, the OptumX is proudly built in the USA, delivering high quality and fast turnaround times.
