Wilson Electronics, manufacturer of cellular signal boosters, has introduced the latest in the company’s line of signal boosters engineered specifically for M2M (machine-to-machine) device installations.
The dual band High Power Direct Connect signal booster (High Power) produces more than 4 watts of output power on 800 MHz band, as well as the maximum allowable of 2 watts on the 1900 MHz band. This makes it an ideal complement to cellular modems operating on GSM or similar technologies in remote locations or other areas of weak signal. The extreme attention given to linearity and overload protection during the design phase further ensures reliable data transfers over 800/1900 MHz networks.
The High Power comes with an anticipated MSRP of $299.95, and should be available early third quarter for purchase. It will be on display at booth 207 at the Connected World Conference, Pheasant Run Resort, St. Charles, Ill., through June 14.
“The number of M2M installations worldwide is expected to grow by millions over the next few years, and M2M solutions providers will increasingly rely on cellular networks for data transfer,” said Laine Matthews, Wilson’s director of business development. “With the High Power Direct Connect, providers can source the most powerful M2M signal booster available to deploy with their M2M installations in remote locations or in other weak signal areas.”
The Wilson High Power signal booster is compatible with networks in North America, is ready to integrate with modems equipped with an external antenna port and can be configured to fit in virtually any M2M installation.
This booster’s excellent performance and reliability is a result of 12 years of experience in developing field-tested, market-proven technologies, which power Wilson’s broad line of cellular signal boosters for the consumer, commercial and public safety markets.
Integrators and OEMs can pair the High Power signal booster with a variety of expertly designed Wilson Electronics cellular antennas for maximum system gain to overcome weak or unreliable signal. It incorporates power control logic that ensures maximum output power is within cellular network standards and will not interfere with network operations.
