| September 20, 2019

Custom ULTRAMAX GLASS antenna solution delivers high performance connectivity for fleet owners and drivers

Airgain, Inc a provider of advanced antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking across a broad range of devices and markets, including consumer, enterprise, and automotive, today announced that it has been chosen by Platform Science, an enterprise IoT fleet management platform, as its connectivity partner. Airgain also commenced volume shipments in Q3-2018 of its ULTRAMAX GLASS 4-in-1 antenna, in a customized configuration specifically addressing Platform Science’s key connectivity and installation requirements.

Platform Science’s future-first integrated solutions enable customers and developers to access valuable transportation data in real-time. The company’s open platform is designed to equip customers with the flexibility and control to easily integrate innovative third-party applications.

“Platform Science is changing the fleet trucking industry with a platform that enables easy integration of key capabilities into a single solution that relies on multi-faceted wireless connectivity to deliver maximum impact,” said Reed Pangborn, Vice President of Sales, North America of Airgain. “We are delighted to be able to deliver a solution for Platform Science customers that is tailored to their exacting needs and delivers across all key performance metrics.”

“Reliable, high-performance connectivity is an absolute must for our enterprise fleet customers and their drivers,” said Jeff Hall, Vice President Customer Support/Field Engineering for Platform Science. “The ULTRAMAX GLASS antenna from Airgain has proven to be an excellent choice. The compact single form factor supports multiple in-cabin mounting choices and minimizes installation time and vehicle downtime. We are confident our customers are receiving a best-in-class solution with Airgain.”

For Platform Science, Airgain helps address the wireless connectivity requirements for real-time communication between applications, trucks, and customers to help ensure fleets meet electronic logging device (ELD) requirements in addition to providing key telematics and vehicle data. The Airgain solution turns a fleet vehicle into an IoT hub with a built-in, connected vehicle device that connects to the Airgain antenna. The solution enables communication of critical information and supports edge computing to allow real-time monitoring of key metrics and vehicle performance.

Airgain spent several months working with Platform Science to address key customer requirements, such as the need for unobtrusive interior mounting and multiple communications options, including external GPS capability for tablet connectivity. With tablet GPS being notoriously bouncy, enterprise fleets need a telematics device architecture that can provide a quality GPS signal directly to their tablets.

The result is the custom designed ULTRAMAX GLASS product that provides a sleek form factor for mounting in-dash and supports two high gain MIMO Cellular/LTE antennas, one Wi-Fi antenna, and a GPS antenna with coverage for GPS and GLONASS satellite systems.
