Airgain Launches 5G mm-Wave Beamforming Antenna Array for Small CellsRFecho
Airgain has announced the launch of its 5G mmWave beamforming antenna. The beamforming antenna supports 5G FR2 bands from 24 GHz to 40 GHz and is scalable for rays in up to 64 elements.
The combination of the high propagation loss of the millimeter wavelengths (mmWaves) and high bandwidth demands in 5G NR systems makes beamforming critical for increasing spectral efficiencies and providing cost-effective, reliable 5G coverage. Airgain’s 5G mmWave beamforming antenna utilizes a flexible reference design supporting both passive and active beamforming architectures. The antenna enables the rapid development of customizable integrated antenna solutions for 5G devices that utilize mmWave frequency bands, including small cells and fixed wireless access gateways, amongst others.
Airgain is showcasing its 5G mmWave active beamforming antenna array at CES 2020 in Las Vegas, from Jan 7 to 10.
