Cellular signal amplifier company Wilson Electronics expects the acquisition of SignalTeQ, the creator of the CellLinQ Meter + App will help Wilson improve its solutions offering and quality of customer experience, the company’s CEO Bruce Lancaster, told In-Building Tech.
“The acquisition also allows Wilson to offer the best end-to-end tools and solutions for our customers and installation partners,” the executive said.
The CellLinQ Meter + App helps professional installers save time and money when conducting cellular site surveys for commercial installations. Wilson said that the acquisition is a result of rapidly increasing demand for Wilson Electronics’ professionally installed products.
The executive also said that that the addition of SignalTeQ’s CellLinQ Meter + App into the installation process will provide a more nuanced way for integrators to fine-tune their installations for rapid, dependable commercial installs.
Headquartered in Salt Lake City, SignalTeQ provides advanced commercial cellular site surveying tools to aid integrators in the site walk and design of complex enterprise commercial solutions. SignalTeQ’s CellLinQ Meter + App is a comprehensive two-part system that communicates via a Bluetooth connection. When the scan button is pressed, the meter lists all available cellular tower information within range of its antenna. Towers are located, geo-mapped and pinned based on carrier ID and location. In addition, the CellLinQ Meter + App provides an individual tower or list view of results and data logging of scans.
The implementation of the CellLinQ Meter + App will reduce the complexity of commercial installs and will benefit enterprise customers of all types including healthcare facilities, commercial real estate properties, manufacturing buildings and educational institutions, among others.
“BYOD (bring your own device) is becoming more of a standard business practice. That, combined with smart building solutions, create a great opportunity for growth for us as well as for our integrator partners due to the increased need for strong cellular signal,” Lancaster said. “Connectivity is evolving to more than just connecting people/cell phones. There are over 5 million commercial buildings in the U.S. and with increasing automation and expansion of IoT, cellular connectivity is rapidly expanding. According to Ericsson’s 2020 mobility report, it is predicted that by 2026, 40% of all IoT connections will be via cellular connectivity.”
