AL Tech to introduce AnyGate RG-4000A AP Router using Airgain smart antenna solution.

Airgain, Inc., a developer of high-performance smart antenna solutions for the WLAN market, today announced the first customer for its patented A2475 Smart Antenna solution for wireless access points, routers and gateway devices. AL Tech, an original equipment manufacturer based in Korea, will incorporate the A2475 smart antenna into its AnyGate RG-4000A Smart AP wireless router product beginning in early 2006.

The A2475 is an embedded smart antenna solution that utilizes patented beam forming technology to deliver up to 300 percent greater signal strength and receive sensitivity than conventional antenna solutions. It features 15 individual antenna beams and provides superior horizontal and vertical coverage. When integrated into wireless access point and router products, the A2475 provides faster throughput, reduced dead spots, and increased wireless range compared to traditional Wireless-G networks.

“Our flexible and innovative approach to antenna design has enabled us to reach this very important milestone in our company’s growth, with a product that meets the performance, quality, and cost structure requirements of the wireless home and office,” said Pertti Visuri, chief executive officer of Airgain. “We are extremely pleased to partner with AL Tech in their efforts to deliver the industry’s first high performance wireless multimedia router solution designed for the mass market.”

With the introduction of the new Airgain-based 802.11g router product, AL Tech customers will now be able to benefit from industry-leading wireless performance. The RG-4000A AP router will be launched commercially in Korea and features actual user throughput speeds of up to 40 mbps. The need for maximum throughput made the Airgain A2475 Smart Antenna the antenna choice for AL Tech.

"Airgain was able to develop and deliver a superior product that performed better in high multipath and multi-story facilities than anything we have tried to date," said J.Y. Kim, president of AL Tech. "The combination of our extensive background in wireless networking and Airgain’s innovative smart antenna technology has enabled us to deliver the perfect solution to handle multimedia in the wireless home network."
