Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG) , a global provider of wireless connectivity solutions, including embedded components, external antennas, and integrated systems, has announced a collaboration with Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI), a world leader in the development of mobile and fixed broadband communication networks and multimedia systems based in Berlin, Germany.

Connectivity without disruption for mobile and fixed wireless access (FWA) usage is a major goal of all operators and end customers. This collaboration focuses on developing the critical building blocks of wireless systems and intelligent networks to improve the user experience for both operators and customers. Combining Fraunhofer HHI’s expertise in digital wireless communication with Airgain’s leadership in smart antenna technology and wireless systems integration will enable the introduction of new product innovations designed to significantly improve the wireless connectivity experience worldwide.
