Wilson Electronics recently announced the opening of pre-orders for the company’s first 5G cellular amplifier, the Pro 710i. The telecommunications industry has been laying the groundwork for 5G for several years, which includes increased traffic on the Band 71 (600 MHz) cellular frequency. The Pro 710i, a single-band, commercial-grade amplifier by WilsonPro, will boost cellular signals on Band 71 (600 MHz) and will be publicly available for purchase in summer 2020.
The Pro 710i’s single, powerful indoor antenna port boasts +23 dBm of downlink power and provides up to 100,000 square feet of indoor coverage, making it a perfect fit for large commercial buildings looking to improve their 5G cellular connectivity. This includes hotels, healthcare facilities, schools, manufacturing plants, commercial and residential real estate properties and more. The Pro 710i makes strong, reliable 5G signal available for an entire building’s tenants, employees and visitors who subscribe to carriers who utilize Band 71. This means lightning-fast download speeds, dramatically reduced latency and the ability to connect more IoT-enabled devices, finally making the long-awaited promise of 5G a reality.
“5G is poised to transform the wireless industry as we know it, with the potential to connect more people than ever before,” says Bruce Lancaster, CEO of Wilson Electronics. “But 5G signals will struggle to penetrate buildings, just as 4G signals struggle today, so cellular signal amplifiers will be the only way to make 5G accessible to the majority of users.”
Lancaster tells IndustryWeek, “Just like 4G, 5G will experience signal attenuation issues. To ensure that manufacturers are able to access 5G (and all of the capabilities it brings) inside their facilities and operating properly with IoT devices, they’ll need cellular amplifiers,” he says.
WilsonPro’s Pro 710i makes strong, reliable 5G signal available for an entire building’s tenants, employees and visitors who subscribe to carriers who utilize Band 71. “This means lightning-fast download speeds, dramatically reduced latency and the ability to connect more IoT-enabled devices, finally making the long-awaited promise of 5G a reality,” he says.
It can also be easily installed to run in parallel with any existing WilsonPro amplifier system without the need to replace existing amplifiers. Because the Pro710i is certified under FCC Part 20 Industrial Cellular Amplifier Rules, applicable carrier approval is required for operation. However, unlike other 5G commercial cellular amplifiers currently on the market, the Pro 710i doesn’t require permission from every carrier prior to installation; instead, it only requires registration and approval by any carrier broadcasting Band 71 in that area.
The Pro 710i features eXtended Dynamic Range (XDR) technology to automatically adjust to any changes in outdoor signal quality, ensuring that the amplifier will never experience signal overload or shut down. The Pro 710i also includes a 30-day money-back guarantee and a best-in-class manufacturer’s warranty by WilsonPro that protects the product for three years.
