SAN DIEGO -- Celeno Communications, the leading provider of smart, managed Wi-Fi solutions, and Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a leading provider of embedded antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking, announced today that they have entered into an agreement to collaborate on the delivery of a smart antenna platform based on the Celeno CL2400 802.11ac Wave 2 4x4 radio and its Smart Antenna Steering (SAS) technology. The resultant reference design solution will provide system designers and manufacturers with the blueprints for a smart antenna enabled 4x4 MIMO gigabit gateway design that will form the basis for the next generation of gigabit gateways and set top boxes to be deployed by world leading telecommunications and cable operators.

The collaboration will leverage Airgain’s expertise in RF and switched smart antenna design, together with Celeno’s CL2400 chipset’s proprietary SAS silicon and software technology which enables the CL2400 to dynamically select 4 antenna elements out of an array of up to 16 elements on both transmit and receive. The SAS enabled reference design system will provide multi-modes of operation per RF chain, allowing dynamic diversity set selection for improved immunity to device orientation and mobility, while enhancing system performance in multi-floor and multi-room scenarios.

User experience is becoming a key metric for in-home gateways and wireless sits at the heart of that experience. World-leading telecommunications providers and cable operators are looking for optimized solutions to deliver seamless 4K ultra high definition (UHD) video streaming over Wi-Fi, while providing benchmark connectivity for a variety of wireless devices within the home including smartphones and tablets. Celeno’s SAS enabled semiconductor solutions, together with Airgain’s smart antenna design and integration expertise, will provide solutions for leading telecom and cable operators to meet the growing demand for reliable and seamless Wi-Fi performance throughout the connected home.

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
