Wilson Electronics (News - Alert), a provider of amplifiers and antennas for cellular phones and data cards, has launched its SignalBoost DB Pro, an in-building wireless cellular amplifier kit.
The newly launched kit is designed to significantly improve voice and data performance of any cellular device, on any network, inside buildings or homes experiencing weak signals, according to the company.
Designed for simple installation, the SignalBoost DB Pro kit is the dual band amplifier with an external omni directional high gain antenna. This antenna comes with multiple mounting options. The inside panel antenna rebroadcasts the amplified signal inside the home. All components are interconnected using provided standard TV cable, said the company.
“Dependency on cellular signals is on the rise as more and more people choose to drop their landlines in favor of their cell phones, making the need for strong cellular signal connection in the home, office, or any other building more important than ever before,” said Joe Banos, COO of Wilson Electronics.
“While most solutions on the market require complex installation or do not deliver the quality cellular signal enhancement promised, the SignalBoost DB Pro offers consumers, and professional installers, an easy to install, dependable solution, giving cellular users the confidence that their signal connections will be there when they need it most.”
The kit, as claimed by the company, is said to increase power to the cell site up to 20 times over a typical cell phone and provides the bulk of the power needed for signal reception and transmission, allowing users also benefit from longer cell phone battery life. Added to this, with minimal outside signal the DB Pro can typically provide coverage for an average 2,000 square foot home.
Earlier this month, Wilson Electronics launched the complete line of iBooster in-vehicle, plug-and-play cellular amplifier kits designed to improve cellular signals to deliver better voice and data coverage for users on the road.
The Wilson Electronics’ SignalBoost DB Pro kit includes a Dual Band bi-directional amplifier (62dB 75 Ohm) with power supply of 110/220 V AC, Omni-directional exterior antenna with multiple mounting options (75 Ohm), Panel antenna (75 Ohm), 3 sets of standard TV Cable (RG-6 Cable in 50, 30 and 20 ft lengths). The kit also comes with 30-day customer satisfaction money back guarantee in addition to one year warranty on all components.
The SignalBoost DB Pro has been tested in real world, said the company.
Reportedly, the SignalBoost DB Pro is available with immediate effect through authorized Wilson Electronics’ dealers for around $600.
