Airgain announced last week its smart MIMO antennas: The company is the first I’m aware of to exploit what will be a large niche market as MIMO hits the mainstream with 802.11n, WiMax with MIMO, and other wireless technologies that will employ multiple antennas for better sending and receiving. Airgain’s system eliminates external antennas, which can allow simpler designs that are cheaper to produce. Airgain is offering two models designed for 802.11n. The MaxBeam65N works in 2.4 GHz, and can accommodate two and four radio designs in a 2x2 or 4x4 configuration. The 80N can handle 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz, providing a 3x3 array for three radios.
