Wilson Electronics announces its first 5G cellular amplifier for CRE properties

Wilson Electronics, a cellular signal booster technology provider, announced it’s taking pre-orders for its first 5G cellular amplifier, the Pro 710i. The device is a single-band commercial-grade amplifier by WilsonPro that will boost cell signals on Band 71 (600 MHz). It will be available to the public this summer.

An in-building 5G solution for CRE

The Pro 710i’s single antenna port yields +23 dBm of downlink power and provides up to 100,000 square feet of indoor coverage. The solution is geared to help CRE owners who want to improve their 5G cellular connectivity. The Pro 710i is expected to deliver a reliable 5G signal for tenants and visitors in hotels, healthcare facilities, schools, manufacturing plants, commercial and residential real estate properties and more. With 5G, CRE owners can offer tenants faster download speeds, decreased latency and also have the ability to connect to more Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

“5G is poised to transform the wireless industry as we know it, with the potential to connect more people than ever before,” Wilson Electronics CEO Bruce Lancaster said in a statement. “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. Wilson Electronics has always been at the forefront of wireless technology innovation, and 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.”

Pro 710i to support wireless carriers’ 5G deployments

Wilson Electronics’ Pro 710i can be used a standalone product to complement T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and other carriers’ ongoing 5G rollout on Band 71. The company can also install the amplifier to run parallel with any current WilsonPro amplifier system without having to replace existing equipment.

The Pro710i is certified under Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Industrial Cellular Amplifier rules, so applicable carrier approval is required for operation. However, the solution does not require every carrier’s permission before installation—unlike other 5G commercial cellular amplifiers that are on the market. Instead, the Pro 710i requires registration and approval by any carrier that’s broadcasting Band 71 in the area. The device also features extended Dynamic Range (XDR) technology so it can automatically adjust to any changes in outdoor signal quality. This guarantees the amplifier won’t experience a signal overload or shut down.
