MaxLinear and Airgain Enable Multi-Gigabit Data Transfer Through Low-E Glass Windows for 5G Fixed Wireless Access

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

MaxLinear, Inc. (MXL), a leading provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, today announced a collaboration with Airgain, Inc. (AIRG), a global leader in wireless connectivity platforms, to demonstrate the wireless transfer of more than 2 Gigabits per second (Gbps) through low-emissivity (low-E) glass windows using a small, 90mm x 90mm window-mounted antenna module.

The ability to bridge gigabit data rates from the outside of the house to the inside of the house is a key challenge for 5G and 60GHz fixed wireless access technologies that use millimeter wave radio frequencies (RF). Millimeter wave RF signals are ideal for supporting ultra-high broadband speeds with very low latency, but they’re incapable of penetrating building walls or energy efficient windows with low-E metallic coatings.

MaxLinear’s AirPHY technology provides an ideal solution to this problem and eliminates the need for broadband service providers to drill holes in their customer’s homes. AirPHY can be combined with any broadband access technology in an outdoor unit (ODU) attached to the home. Indoor units (IDUs) can easily be self-installed by aligning with the ODU and attaching to an inside wall or window. AirPHY operates within unlicensed radio frequency bands and below the FCC limits for radiated emissions.

Utilizing Airgain’s compact solution, the AirPHY system combines antennas on either side of the building to provide near field coupling, which can penetrate through low-E windows or walls, efficiently and in a small form factor.

“High-performance broadband requires complex thinking and understanding how to solve real-world wireless connectivity challenges is at the core of our business,” said Chuck Myers, President and CEO at Airgain. “The AirPHY technology from MaxLinear is a clear example of thinking outside the box to address the last meter opportunity, and we’re excited to be working collaboratively with MaxLinear to deliver new and innovative antenna systems to enable this technology.”

“Fixed wireless broadband operators are challenged to deliver gigabit speeds across the last meter, into the home,” said Will Torgerson, Vice President and General Manager, MaxLinear Broadband Group. “AirPHY is an elegant solution that reduces installation costs and improves the customer experience.”

The AirPHY demonstration with Airgain’s antenna will be held at CES 2018, January 9-12, in MaxLinear’s private suites at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. For reservations, please contact sales@maxlinear.com.

    Why New Age Beverage Corp. Stock Popped Today

    Shares of New Age Beverage Corp. (NASDAQ: NBEV) were climbing again today, riding a surge on marijuana stocks as growers like Tilray, Cronos Group, and Canopy Growth all jumped by double digits. Along with the bullish sentiment in the industry, a number of other factors seemed to be driving New Age shares higher, including the recent hiring of a new CFO, the upcoming legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada on Wednesday, and the market's reaction to its launch last week of a new line of beverages infused with cannabidiol (CBD). On Friday, New Age named Gregory Gould as its new CFO, a notable move as Gould brings experience from the pharmaceutical industry, which should help the beverage company as it moves into CBD products.

Occidental Petroleum (NYSE: OXY), Nutrisystem (NASDAQ: NTRI), and Carvana (NYSE: CVNA) were among the worst performers on the day.

    Many U.S. mall owners say good riddance to Sears

    The real estate investment trusts that own the malls and shopping centers where many Sears stores are anchor tenants have waited years for the retailer's demise to renovate the sites and boost rent, although redevelopment costs may strain some plans. Most large U.S. malls are controlled by REITs. In recent years, the REITs have cut their exposure to Sears Holdings Corp, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Monday.

    In 1989 Sears was the largest retailer in the United States. Many people will lay the blame at the feet of Eddie Lampert, the Wall Street power investor who took control of Sears in 2004 and soon after merged it with Kmart which he also controlled. Lampert, who has now stepped down as CEO of Sears as part of the bankruptcy filing, remains its chairman and its largest shareholder.

    Marijuana stocks to watch: Canopy Growth is the cannabis business’s $4 billion gorilla

    The following article is part of a package of stories that MarketWatch is publishing to mark the start of full legalization of cannabis for adult use in Canada on Wednesday. Smith Falls, Ontario–based Canopy Growth Corp. made headlines and drove cannabis stocks to new heights over the summer when it announced that Corona brewer Constellation Brands Inc. was going to invest an additional $4 billion in the company. Billed by both companies as a strategic partnership, the additional $4 billion investment adds to the 9.9% stake that Constellation bought in October of last year and sets the company up to either be bought outright by Constellation — via warrants that could increase its stake to more than 50% — or continue to work with the beverage company to create a range of consumer-focused cannabis products that may one day appear in markets in dozens of countries.

    Sears Didn't 'Die.' Vulture Capitalists Killed It.

    If you’ve been following the impending bankruptcy of America’s iconic retailer as covered by print, broadcast and digital media, you’ve probably encountered lots of nostalgia and sad clucking about how dinosaurs like Sears can’t compete in the age of Amazon and specialty retail. Namely, Sears is a prime example of how hedge funds and private equity companies take over retailers, encumber them with debt in order to pay themselves massive windfall profits, and then leave the retailer without adequate operating capital to compete. Part of the strategy is to sell off valuable real estate, the better to enrich the hedge fund, and stick the retail company with costly rental payments to occupy the space that it once owned.

With all of that in mind, here are the recently released details of these five 2019 Social Security changes. As I mentioned, Social Security beneficiaries are getting a 2.8% COLA starting with their January 2019 benefit payment.
