Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a leading provider of advanced antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking, announced today the release of its ULTRAMAX MIMO 9-in-1 antenna. This antenna is the first in a series of antennas designed to support state-of-the-art communications technology in fleet routers, including the Cradlepoint IBR1700. The new ULTRAMAX MIMO 9-in-1 antenna will help improve public safety and fleet solutions with enhanced Wi-Fi capability, and is the first of its kind to include 6x6 MIMO Wi-Fi, Dual LTE, and multi-GNSS technology antennas in a single enclosure. This antenna provides the ultimate in Wi-Fi support – with integrated 6x6 Wi-Fi antennas, providing support for full HD streaming video and other high bandwidth applications.
The new ULTRAMAX MIMO 9-in-1 antenna is equipped with 9 ports, supporting tri-band Wi-Fi, LTE/MIMO (including Band 14 for FirstNet™), and GNSS. With a single compact footprint, the antenna promotes ease of installation, avoiding multiple mounting and cable entry points associated with existing solutions. The new antenna includes high rejection GNSS technology with coverage for multiple satellite systems including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou (BDS) satellite systems.
“Technology advances in routers, including enhanced Wi-Fi and expanded MIMO LTE, require enabling antenna technology to deliver an optimized end user experience,” said Reed Pangborn, Vice President of Channel Sales for North America. “We designed a new antenna to support the fleet management applications required in today’s evolving mobile environment. The ULTRAMAX MIMO 9-in-1 antenna demonstrates our commitment to providing leading antenna solutions for our mobility customers covering a wide range of vehicles, including police, fire, ambulance, and other fleet assets.”
The ULTRAMAX MIMO 9-in-1 antenna is the only single unit antenna that complements Cradlepoint’s IBR1700 and supports all six of its Wi-Fi ports. Airgain will unveil the new antenna at the Cradlepoint Global Partner Summit in Scottsdale, AZ, April 11-12, 2018. The new ULTRAMAX MIMO 9-in-1 antenna will be available to order starting June through our trusted channel partners or call direct at 1-855-AIRGAIN.
