Technology leader meets increasing demand for embedded antenna design, over-the-air testing, and integration services by expanding to the EU
Cambridge, United Kingdom, September 10, 2015 — Airgain, Inc., an industry leader in smart and embedded antenna technology, integration support, and test services for the wireless communications market, today announced the expansion of its engineering design and test capabilities with the recent opening of its European Design Center in Cambridge, United Kingdom. Located in one of the most important technology centers in Europe, the new Broughton Hall facility offers early stage system design, custom engineering support, and superior over-the-air (OTA) testing capabilities for service providers and original equipment manufacturers. The new design center fills a significant need for localized antenna design and test services in Europe, and adds to Airgain’s already established centers in the United States, China, and Taiwan.
The Broughton Hall OTA facility has been configured to replicate the performance in a typical European home while providing isolation from external radio frequency (RF) and wireless interference. This low noise environment is key when comparing and identifying the effect of various antenna and system designs on wireless throughput performance, and provides the basis for Airgain’s superior performance over the competition. The new center will provide single and multi-client Wi-Fi performance testing and validation services for a variety of wireless devices utilizing advanced MIMO configurations and technologies, including WLAN, Bluetooth, and ZigBee.
“Establishing our European Design Center represents a significant milestone in our goal of establishing Airgain as the leading provider of antenna solutions globally,” said Charles Myers, President and CEO of Airgain. “Airgain is committed to maintaining a leading role in wireless technology innovation and our team of skilled engineers and world-class test facilities helps bring the highest quality wireless services to our clients. The company will continue to uphold its standard of excellence in Europe, ensuring Airgain customers will benefit from our extensive knowledge and expertise in wireless performance.”
“We are dedicated to the success of our customers and we now have the capability of providing them first-hand collaboration on projects and more support in the region,” said Morad Sbahi, Airgain General Manager, EMEA. “The number of in-home wireless devices is growing each year and consumer requirements for higher performance continues to increase. Our goal is to help our customers meet consumer expectations by providing optimum performance solutions for their products so they are number one in their market.”
