Airgain, Inc. Key Developments

Airgain, Inc. Announces Executive Appointments

Airgain, Inc. announced new members to its executive team. Leo Johnson has joined as the Chief Financial Officer and Simon Yang, Ph.D. has been promoted to Vice President of Engineering. In Johnson's role with the company, he will continue to streamline processes and maximize efficiencies within all financial protocols while overseeing revenue and operational expansion for immediate and long-term strategies. Yang's role will focus on structuring global product development engineering functions, the conceptualizing and management of simultaneous projects, and delivering designs to agreed specifications within time and budget. Mr. Johnson brings over 30 years of executive leadership skills and building various high technology companies to Airgain. Continuing to build upon Airgain's growth with his unique experience, Mr. Johnson has worked extensively with companies of different sizes and stages. Previously, he held several financial positions at Verisign, Inc., including director of finance, a position he held since 2003. With 30 years of executive experience in successful hardware engineering and product development, Dr. Yang has been promoted to Vice President of Engineering. He is responsible for Airgain's overall technology strategy from initial R&D to final production and manufacturing. Before joining Airgain in 2005, Dr. Yang was the Senior Research Scientist at CSIRO Australia, Senior Manager of Engineering at CeLight, Inc., and held a management position at Lumera Corporation.

Airgain, Inc. Announces New Headquarters in San Diego, Calif

Airgain, Inc. announced that the company has opened its new headquarters in San Diego, Calif. and installed a new SATIMO antenna measurement system from MICROWAVE VISION Group (MVG). The company's new headquarters, located at 3611 Valley Centre Drive, Suite 150, San Diego, CA 92130, provides ample room to accommodate additional employees as the company continues to grow. The upgraded facilities allow Airgain to continue developing and perfecting the cutting-edge technologies the company is known for, while further exploring new technology innovations. Located in the epicenter of San Diego's wireless hub in Carmel Valley, the new location enables the company to recruit and retain employees with diverse skills. The central location also allows Airgain personnel to travel and work efficiently with other colleagues and customers both locally and around the world. To further expand its already testing capabilities, the company installed the SATIMO SG 24, considered one of the best antenna measurement systems in the world. The system provides a considerably higher dynamic range in antenna measurements and will enable Airgain to better test wireless throughput performance for a wide range of protocols including LTE, IEEE 802.11n and IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi standards -- core technologies driving the in-home wireless device market.

Airgain Announces Launch of AirMetric

Airgain, Inc. announced the launch of AirMetric. An industry first, AirMetric is a Wi-Fi performance modeling solution designed to achieve the maximum performance possible for every in-home wireless device. At the heart of AirMetric is the ability to identify the optimal antenna solution in the earliest design stage by analyzing a combination of passive simulation measurements. Using this analysis enables Airgain antenna engineers to provide wireless device manufacturers with early stage design recommendations. This ensures peak performance before devices are built, as well as time and cost savings related to product development. Traditionally, device manufacturers design a system using passive antenna data, then measure and assess wireless throughput performance after initial prototypes become available. In the case where performance does not meet expectations, costly design changes are often required. Using AirMetric, performance "figures of merit" are assigned to each antenna design, identifying the high performance antenna systems. This provides manufacturers with an early look into any required design changes such as device size, PCB layout, or heat sink placement, saving time and money later on in the process.
