New Orleans - Wilson Electronics unveiled a five-band 4G/3G in-door cellular-signal booster promoted as the most affordable five-band model to date.
The AG Pro-Quint, on display here at CTIA Wireless 2012, is designed for professional installation and will retail for a suggested $1,799 when it ships to dealers in the third quarter. It amplifies signals on all carriers'2G and 3G networks as well as on the 4G networks of AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. It boosts signals in the 800MHz, 1900MHz, and 1.7/2.1GHz AWS bands and in the separate AT&T and Verizon 700MHz LTE bands. It will deliver up to 75dB of gain and supports cellular CDMA, GSM, LTE, HSPA+ and WCDMA technologies.
The device, about the size of a small textbook, improves cellular-signal coverage in buildings up to 80,000 square feet. It can be paired with a variety of Wilson inside and outside antennas.
Via the AG Pro-Quint's LCD display and push button controls, installers can optimize the gain on each of the five frequency bands for the location where the booster is installed, Wilson said.
Like the company's other signal boosters, Wilson said, the new model features cell-site protection to prevent interference with other calls going through a cell site.
