Airgain will provide high performance embedded antenna system for Askey’s 802.11ac Wave 2 router
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#airgain--Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a global leader in wireless connectivity platforms, today announced it has been chosen by Askey Computer Corporation, a leading provider of wireless communication devices, to provide embedded antenna technology for Askey’s next generation RT4230W 802.11ac dual-band router. The new router incorporates IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi support, providing maximum home coverage and gigabit throughput speeds for the end users of a major North American cable broadband supplier.
Askey’s RT4230W router utilizes an advanced embedded antenna solution, supporting dual band, 4x4 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi to incorporate the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 technology.
