This new family of products includes both low-power small office and home office (SOHO) repeaters and high-power network repeaters for mobile network operators (MNO) and end users. Some of the highlights of the Lighthouse smart repeaters include advanced carrier aggregation (CA) for FR1-FR1 CA (while futureproofing for FR1-FR2 CA), low latency features in compliance with 3GPP requirements, and software upgradeability to support 3GPP with network-controlled repeater (NCR) standards. Furthermore, the Lighthouse smart repeaters are equipped with innovative smart antenna technology, designed to improve the signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR) and speed up deployment times, as well as a software management stack powered by Errigal’s enterprise solution.
"Enhancing 5G network coverage and improving end user experience is critical for MNOs," said Dr. Ali Sadri, Chief Technology Officer at Airgain. "With our expertise in cellular and antenna technology, we set out to build a solution from the ground up that we believe solves many of the common problems MNOs are likely facing in their deployments of 5G networks. We believe that by offering advanced, out-of-the-box features and futureproofing our repeaters through upgradability, we can significantly reduce deployment costs and simplify broadband wireless connectivity."
Airgain will showcase the repeaters and other technology solutions at Mobile World Congress Barcelona from Feb. 27 – March 2, 2023, at its booth in Hall 7 Stand 7G21.
