Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a provider of advanced antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking across a broad range of devices and markets, including consumer, enterprise, and automotive, has announced AirgainConnect™ AC-HPUE, the first antenna-modem from its AirgainConnect platform, the company said.
AirgainConnect AC-HPUE includes an integrated FirstNet Ready™ high-power LTE modem supporting the 3GPP Band 14 High Power UE output power functionality. Band 14 spectrum is the nationwide, high-quality spectrum set aside by the US government specifically for FirstNet. This rugged vehicle antenna-modem solution tightly couples essential LTE radio components to meet the most demanding needs of public safety and fleet vehicles.
By integrating an HPUE modem within an antenna assembly, AC-HPUE ensures transmission of the maximum allowable radiated power directly to the LTE antenna elements. AirgainConnect´s patented technology eliminates the signal loss over coax cables that run from mobile routers mounted in vehicle compartments to roof-mounted antennas, which combined with HPUE capability provides up to ten times the transmit power at the antenna when compared to the router´s conventional modem and antenna. The result is a dramatic increase in the coverage area and higher data rates.
