Wilson Electronics, a specialist in cellular signal amplifier technology, announced significant growth of its enterprise cellular amplifier line, WilsonPro.
Driven by 5G demand, WilsonPro says it saw more than 200% year-over-year growth in many major vertical markets, including the health care industry.
Bruce Lancaster, CEO of Wilson Electronics, said: “The onset of the pandemic in early 2020, as well as the continuing shift to 5G, made the need for reliable, strong cell signal more important than ever before. We’re proud to have been the cellular signal amplifier provider of choice for so many businesses during this unprecedented time, and are looking forward to continuing our rapid growth trajectory and product innovation as the world resumes normalcy.”
The company said that the 5G evolution is finally going mainstream as consumers rush to purchase 5G-supported phones and apps that leverage 5G. However, since 5G signals in the mid and high bands travel a much shorter distance than 4G signal and struggle to penetrate buildings and other obstacles, cellular amplification technology that supports mmWave and C-band will be key in making 5G available to the masses.
In April 2021, WilsonPro made a significant investment in a collaboration with 5G mmWave technology specialist ED2 Corporation. As ED2’s exclusive partner for all productization, manufacturing and go-to-market activities, WilsonPro said it is working closely with ED2 to develop WilsonPro mmWave repeaters for both indoor and outdoor coverage for all North American carriers and approved 5G bands. The solution is currently in testing with major carriers and will be available later this year.
WilsonPro’s enterprise cellular amplifier solutions are implemented at mid-sized buildings, including retailers, financial institutions and restaurants, as well as large commercial buildings including manufacturing facilities, hotels, universities and hospitals.
WilsonPro’s Enterprise 1300/1300R and Enterprise 4300/4300R were the first amplifiers to introduce MTT Technology, which enables them to configure separate outdoor donor antennas to receive cellular signal from multiple cell towers or specific carriers at the same time. Enterprise 4300/4300R cellular amplifiers also feature a network scanning feature, which provides users with real-time measurements of cellular signal power level, signal quality and frequencies for every major U.S. and Canadian carrier.
WilsonPro also recently introduced the WilsonPro Cloud, a platform for cloud-based management and monitoring of cellular signal amplifiers. The WilsonPro Cloud enables users and integrators to remotely manage, monitor and adjust their cellular amplifiers and receive real-time updates with any mobile device.
