Wilson Electronics announces the opening of pre-orders for the company’s first 5G cellular amplifier, the Pro 710i.
“The telecommunications industry has been laying the groundwork for 5G for several years, which includes increased traffic on the Band 71 (600 MHz) cellular frequency. The Pro 710i, a single-band, commercial-grade amplifier by WilsonPro, will boost cellular signals on Band 71 (600 MHz) and will be publicly available for purchase in summer 2020,” the company says in an announcement.
The Pro 710i’s indoor antenna port features +23 dBm of downlink power and provides up to 100,000 square feet of indoor coverage, making it suitable for large commercial buildings, according to the company.
“5G is poised to transform the wireless industry as we know it, with the potential to connect more people than ever before,” said Bruce Lancaster, CEO of Wilson Electronics.
“But 5G signals will struggle to penetrate buildings, just as 4G signals struggle today, so cellular signal amplifiers will be the only way to make 5G accessible to the majority of users. Wilson Electronics has always been at the forefront of wireless technology innovation, and the upcoming release of the Pro 710i will allow large commercial buildings to take advantage of 5G’s rapid download speeds, enhanced connectivity and responsiveness for the first time.”

The Pro 710i cellular amplifier can be used as a standalone product to support the ongoing 5G rollout on Band 71 for T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and other carriers. It can also be installed to run in parallel with any existing WilsonPro amplifier system without the need to replace existing amplifiers.
Because the Pro710i is certified under FCC Part 20 Industrial Cellular Amplifier Rules, applicable carrier approval is required for operation. However, the Pro 710i doesn’t require permission from every carrier prior to installation; instead, it only requires registration and approval by any carrier broadcasting Band 71 in that area.
