Wilson AG Pro Quint Earns FCC Cell Signal Booster Certification

Wilson Electronics’ AG Pro Quint has been certified to meet the FCC’s new technical standards that ensure cell phone signal boosters don’t interfere with wireless networks and emergency phone calls.

Wilson Electronics has announced that its AG Pro Quint indoor cellular signal booster has earned Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification and is now available for purchase.

Wilson says the AG Pro Quint, winner of a 2013 CE Pro BEST Award, is the first signal booster certified to meet the FCC’s new technical standards, which on March 1, 2014 requires boosters not to interfere with wireless networks and cause interference to other calls, including emergency and 911 calls.

“Receiving the first FCC approval to the new network protection standards is a significant achievement for everyone at Wilson Electronics, and affirms our position as the industry and market leader,” says Robert Van Buskirk, President and CEO of Wilson Electronics. “We’re dedicated to providing the best quality and performance in signal booster product solutions, to enable cellular users to use their mobile devices where and when they need it.”

The AG Pro Quint enhances 4G and earlier-generation signals for all major U.S. cellular carriers’ networks. The five-band signal booster, which is designed for coverage in buildings up to 80,000 square feet, supports LTE and other cellular technologies and features the FCC maximum 70dB gain, and supports simultaneous connection by multiple cellular devices.

  • Boosts signals on 800 MHz, 1900MHz, AWS and both AT&T and Verizon 700 MHz 4G networks
  • Supports CDMA, GSM, EVDO, LTE, HSPA+ and WCDMA technologies
  • Compact Design
  • Weighs less than three pounds

“We are on track for a wide range of FCC product certifications in advance of the March 1, 2014 deadline,” adds Van Buskirk. “We have been actively testing our new products to the NPS at third-party, FCC certified test laboratories for several months and expect to receive the full FCC certification for a range of new products early next year.”

Wilson recently signed a deal with the Authorized Integrators Network (AiN) to make its Custom Installer Series cell phone signal boosters and related products available to the extensive AiN Group members.
