The AirgainConnect FirstNet Ready™ AC-HPUE high power user equipment (HPUE) built for FirstNet® MegaRange™, delivers the maximum allowed radiated power directly to the LTE antenna elements. The uplink signal is the weakest link in the LTE connection, which can be problematic in fringe coverage areas or inside buildings such as parking structures. When the uplink is disconnected, the user gets no service in the downlink. AirgainConnect’s patented technology eliminates the loss over the coax cables from the vehicle router to the roof-mounted antenna, providing 10 times the transmit power when compared to the router’s conventional modem. The result is deeper building penetration and higher uplink data speeds at the edge of the network.
