Airgain, Inc., a leading provider of advanced wireless connectivity technologies and systems used to enable high performance networking across a broad range of devices and markets, and Mobix Labs Inc., a global connectivity solutions provider for wireless mmWave 5G and wired high bandwidth cable networks, announced an agreement for the development of strategic, future-proof 5G technology.
As operators and manufacturers grapple with the various technologies under the 5G umbrella, it has become difficult to know where to invest. This presents a unique opportunity for Airgain and Mobix Labs to partner to develop disruptive, cost-effective, high performance wireless solutions for 5G mmWave and C-band applications. Combining Airgain’s expertise in 5G systems and Mobix Labs’ expertise in system-on-chip design, or SoCs, the collaboration will focus on development of products designed to significantly reduce the cost of ownership and provide solutions in 5G coverage gaps among carriers that fall within high-band mmWave and C-band operating frequencies.
“At Airgain, we are committed to connecting the world, through optimized integrated wireless solutions, especially as we transition to support the market demand for 5G,” said Airgain CTO Ali Sadri. “By leveraging Mobix Labs’ in-depth expertise in 5G and RF semiconductors, along with our advanced wireless connectivity technologies, we aim to deliver higher value systems solutions to the global wireless market.”
The collaboration is intended to provide new growth opportunities for both companies as the combined solution would serve multiple industries such as consumer electronics, infrastructure, automotive, IoT, as well as high reliability military, and aerospace applications.
“We are thrilled to be working with Airgain to develop innovative products we believe will address the growing need for more bandwidth across the 5G spectrum,” said Mobix Labs CEO Fabian Battaglia. “Our collaboration has the potential to bring first-to-market solutions that will make 5G a reality for mid- and high-band networks currently being deployed by carriers worldwide.”
