Wilson Electronics announced the company’s first 5G cellular amplifier, the Pro 710i. With increased traffic on the Band 71 (600 MHz) cellular frequency, the company said the Pro 710i, a single-band, commercial-grade amplifier, will boost cellular signals on 600 MHz. The amp will be publicly available for purchase in summer 2020, the company stated in a press release.
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 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. The Pro 710i makes strong, reliable 5G signal available for an entire building’s tenants, employees and visitors who subscribe to carriers who use Band 71.
“5G is poised to transform the wireless industry as we know it,” said Wilson Electronics CEO Bruce Lancaster. “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. The upcoming release of the Pro 710i will allow large commercial buildings to take advantage of 5G’s rapid download speeds, enhanced connectivity and responsiveness for the first time.”
The versatile Pro 710i cellular amplifier can be used as a standalone product to support the ongoing 5G rollout on Band 71 for T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and other carriers. It can also be easily installed to run in parallel with any existing WilsonPro amplifier system without the need to replace existing amplifiers.
