Airgain, a specialist provider of wireless connectivity solutions, creating and delivering products that include embedded components, external antennas, and integrated systems across the globe, announced that D-Link had selected Airgain embedded antennas to power the WiFi 6 signal in its DWA-F18 VR Air Bridge.
The VR Air Bridge was built exclusively for Virtual Reality (VR) headsets without the hassle of long cables or dependence on a Wi-Fi router. It was designed to provide a dedicated, ultra-low latency wireless connection between the PC and the VR headset in order to enhance the overall VR gaming experience.
Airgain is a leader in embedded WiFi antennas, powering many customer premise equipment (CPE) devices available in the market today. As wireless connectivity becomes more complex, Airgain’s custom design, testing, and optimization services simplify the ability to deliver maximum signal in any environment. The antenna design for the DWA-F18 VR Air Bridge showcases Airgain’s WiFi 6 capabilities in a data rich setting, such as gaming.
D-Link, an award-winning designer, developer, and manufacturer for over 35 years, is a global leader in connecting people, businesses, and cities with computer networking solutions and technology that integrate capabilities in switching, wireless, broadband, IP surveillance, and cloud-based network management.
“D-Link is a networking product innovator, and we are excited to work with them on this pioneering project,” says Brian Critchfield, Vice President of Global Marketing for Airgain. “D-Link is at the forefront of many of the trends driving wireless connectivity in today’s markets, and the VR Air Bridge is no exception.
