Platform Science chooses Airgain as Antenna Partner

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 that it has been chosen by Platform Science, an enterprise IoT fleet management platform, as its connectivity partner, the company said.

Airgain also commenced volume shipments in Q3-2018 of its ULTRAMAX GLASS 4-in-1 antenna, in a customized configuration specifically addressing Platform Science´s key connectivity and installation requirements.

Platform Science´s future-first integrated solutions enable customers and developers to access valuable transportation data in real-time. The company´s open platform is designed to equip customers with the flexibility and control to easily integrate innovative third-party applications.

For Platform Science, Airgain helps address the wireless connectivity requirements for real-time communication between applications, trucks, and customers to help ensure fleets meet electronic logging device (ELD) requirements in addition to providing key telematics and vehicle data. The Airgain solution turns a fleet vehicle into an IoT hub with a built-in, connected vehicle device that connects to the Airgain antenna. The solution enables communication of critical information and supports edge computing to allow real-time monitoring of key metrics and vehicle performance.

Airgain spent several months working with Platform Science to address key customer requirements, such as the need for unobtrusive interior mounting and multiple communications options, including external GPS capability for tablet connectivity. With tablet GPS being notoriously bouncy, enterprise fleets need a telematics device architecture that can provide a quality GPS signal directly to their tablets.
