Airgain Joins LoRa Alliance(TM) and Announces First Product Shipments into United States Carrier Trials of the LoRaWAN(TM) Protocol

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - May 15, 2017) - Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a leading provider of embedded and external antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking, today announced it has become a member of the LoRa Alliance™, along with its first shipments of a new line of antennas designed specifically for Internet of Things (IoT) Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) network connections.

Airgain recently commenced initial shipments of the new antennas, for deployment in a network trial utilizing the LoRaWAN™ protocol for a large North America carrier. The Airgain product offering for LPWA networks includes embedded and external indoor and outdoor antennas, designed to provide optimal performance in frequency bands used domestically and internationally, as required for IoT and LPWAN communications.

Airgain is now a member of the LoRa Alliance, which along with its LoRaWAN ecosystem, is one of the fastest growing alliances in the IoT sector. According to a Machina Research1 2016 report, the number of IoT connections globally will grow to 27 billion connections in 2025, with LPWA connections making up 11%, or approximately 3 billion. The majority of other IoT wireless connections consist of short-range technologies such as Wi-Fi, ZigBee, and wireless components for which Airgain is already an established embedded antenna technology leader.

Geoff Mulligan, Chairman of the LoRa Alliance, said, "Airgain is joining our dynamic global roster of over 450 members from telecommunication companies, equipment manufacturers, system integrators, sensor manufacturers, entrepreneurial startups, and semiconductor providers. This broad ecosystem gains a valuable addition with Airgain, enabling even more collaboration to push the boundaries of IoT innovation. Airgain's carrier trial is another exciting example of our many member successes in deploying the LoRaWAN standard."

Michael Crudele, President of Arcadian Inc., a North America distributor for Airgain antennas, said, "Airgain has reacted very quickly to the needs of the Industrial IoT market in North America, leveraging its IoT antenna technology to produce compact, rugged, and high performance products for LPWA connectivity applications. Airgain's products utilize a UV and salt spray resistant enclosure designed to provide maintenance free operation in the field. We are very excited to be a North American distributor for these products."

Airgain will be attending Computex in Taipei, Taiwan from May 31 to June 2, 2017. We invite you to join us at our suite in the Grand Hyatt Taipei to view product demonstrations and discuss our latest technology solutions. Airgain's latest innovations will be on display, including our new IoT product offerings and automotive connectivity solutions. Contact us at [email protected] to request a meeting.

About the LoRa Alliance™

The LoRa Alliance is an open, nonprofit association that has grown to more than 460 members since its inception in March 2015, becoming one of the largest and fastest-growing alliances in the technology sector. Its members are closely collaborating and sharing their experience to promote the LoRaWAN protocol as the leading open global standard for secure, carrier-grade IoT LPWAN connectivity. With the technical flexibility to address a broad range of IoT applications, both static and mobile, and a certification program to guarantee interoperability, LoRaWAN has already been deployed by major mobile network operators globally with wide expansion anticipated in 2017.

About LoRaWAN™ Technology

The technology used in a LoRaWAN network is designed to connect low-cost, battery-operated sensors over long distances in harsh environments that were previously too challenging or cost-prohibitive to connect. With its unique penetration capability, a LoRaWAN gateway deployed on a building or tower can connect to sensors more than 10 miles away or to water meters deployed underground or in basements. The LoRaWAN protocol offers unique and unequaled benefits in terms of bi-directionality, security, mobility and accurate localization that are not addressed by other LPWAN technologies. These benefits will enable the diverse use cases and business models that will grow deployments of LPWAN IoT networks globally.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
