Miniaturized Embedded LTE Antennas for Smart Home and LPWAN Applications

Airgain has introduced the Profile Contour Embedded series of new ultra wide-band miniaturized antennas, to provide LTE connectivity to the smart home and emerging Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) applications, including Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Targeting set-top-box and gateway deployments as well as LPWAN applications including CAT-M1, LoRa, and NB-IoT, the latest LTE embedded antennas from Airgain utilize an efficient flexible polymer-based low profile design optimized for confined designs and robust assembly variations. Available now, the antennas require minimal incremental integration effort, minimizing the cost and complexity typically associated with embedded antenna system integration. These antennas provide market-leading performance for shorter cable lengths in the lower LTE frequency ranges, making them ideal for LPWAN applications.

With four billion Internet of Things devices expected to rely on LPWANs by 2025, these miniaturized LTE antennas from Airgain will help drive proliferation in LPWAN technology, which is forecasted to be the fastest growing connectivity segment in the market through 2025. Airgain’s expertise and innovation in enabling high performance wireless networking will support environments including smart homes, smart cities, smart buildings, and IIoT applications as they embrace LPWAN.

With multiple applications, this latest series of embedded antennas for LTE and LPWAN from Airgain expands its existing Profile Contour embedded antenna product line. This builds on Airgain’s patented antenna technology it has built over more than a decade in delivering best-in-class wireless connectivity through embedded antenna design and integration innovation.

Airgain is attending MWC Americas 2017 in San Francisco, from September 12-14, as well as IBC 2017, in Amsterdam, from September 15-19. Their latest innovations for multi-gigabit Wi-Fi, LTE, LPWAN, and more will be on display at the events.
