Calling it the “first cloud-connected cellular signal booster,” Wilson Electronics announces its The WilsonPro Pro 1000C cloud cellular signal booster with WilsonPro cloud service and remote monitoring capabilities.
The manufacturer says the The WilsonPro 1000C is designed to provide enhanced in-building cellular coverage for all large commercial spaces and large homes, including hospitals, hotels, warehouses, offices and more.
The integration of WilsonPro Cloud service makes the Pro 1000C the first WilsonPro cell signal booster to include remote monitoring and notification capabilities, according to a Wilson Electronics press release.
CORRECTION: To call the WilsonPro 1000C the “first cloud cellular signal booster” solution, as CI did in the headline, is incorrect. Wilson Electronics uses the term “cloud-connected” and calls the WilsonPro 1000C the “first cloud-connected cellular signal booster.” There are “peer-connected” cellular signal boosters on the market. The headline was misleading because remote monitoring services that allow monitoring and adjustment from off-site have been available from SureCall, HiBoost and Nextivity.
How the The WilsonPro Pro 1000C Works
According to Wilson Electronics, the Pro 1000C sends status updates to the WilsonPro Cloud every five minutes, resulting in continual monitoring of performance and ability to instantly detect issues for end users.
Previously, installers, integrators and end users had to wait until they were on-site to diagnose any cell booster issues. Users can remotely troubleshoot problems by logging into the WilsonPro Cloud database to instantly view the signal strength of the various boosters they’ve installed, as well as how signal strength varies over time.

The WilsonPro Cloud also gives users the option to remotely reset the Pro 1000C and turn bands on and off.
Users can also set up personalized alerts via email and text message for issues including system failure, change in signal strength, oscillation and more.
The Pro 1000C connects to the WilsonPro Cloud via a secure LTE connection through the outside donor antenna or through a traditional RJ-45 “hardwired” Ethernet connection.
The WilsonPro Cloud comes with an annual subscription plan, which covers the wireless LTE connection and database charges.
An internet connection is not required to use the WilsonPro Cloud, ensuring end users’ personal internet connections stay completely separate and secure, according to the Wilson Electronics press release.
“The WilsonPro Cloud’s innovative capabilities allow users to remotely monitor the status of the Pro 1000C and troubleshoot any issues that arise, ensuring that their cell signal boosters are performing optimally, even when the users are off-site,” says Bruce Lancaster, CEO, Wilson Electronics.
“Harnessing the power of the cloud, this industry-first solution will revolutionize the way that cell signal boosters are monitored and managed.”
More on The WilsonPro Pro 1000C via Press Release:
Amplifying weak cellular signals, the Pro 1000C provides reliable voice and data coverage, including 4G LTE, to inside spaces where cell signals may not penetrate. It is compatible with all North American cell phone networks, simultaneously boosting all carrier signals at the same time.
The Pro 1000C features a full-color display which indicates the gain and power levels of each band for easy antenna setup. With eXtended Dynamic Range (XDR) technology built in, the amplifier will never overload or shut down due to changes in outdoor signals.
Like all WilsonPro cellular signal boosters, the Pro 1000C also has cell site protections that auto-detect and prevent any cell tower interference, as well as a best-in-class warranty that protects the product for three years.
“We are an integrator in the Midwest with wireless network systems deployed across a large geographical area.
“The The WilsonPro Pro 1000C with remote access provides both us and our clients the peace of mind knowing we can easily access devices in the field for monitoring, notification, and attaining active control of the repeaters,” said Vince Zagarri, Owner of Zagarri Engineering.
“We are very pleased that Wilson Electronics continues to lead the market by investing in the product line and getting feedback from the integrator community when deciding paths to take in product development.”
