New Cell Phone Signal Booster from Wi-Ex

Share

If you’ve made the switch from a land line to a cell phone, you may have noticed that signal strength varies as you move around your apartment or office. Standing by the window might guarantee a reliable connection while the walk-in closet, not so much. When you crave a more consistently reliable signal no matter where you happen to be using a cell phone in your home or workplace, you probably can benefit from a signal booster.

The newly-arrived Wi-Ex zBoost SOHO Xtreme YX545x can increase indoor coverage by 5,500 square feet, sufficient to cover a spacious apartment or a small mansion. The YX545x works for multiple users at the same time, so everyone in the family or on a sales team can be call-engaged simultaneously.

The Wi-Ex zBoost SOHO Xtreme YX545x is compatible with all U.S. carriers and mobile devices using 800 and 1900 MHz (except Nextel/iDEN or 4G, 2100 MHz phones). As dropouts are reduced, both voice quality and data throughput can benefit. Another plus is that the battery life of each phone can be extended since less power is drained when the signal is stronger.

There’s no cradle or connections to the phones themselves. You simply set up the Wi-Ex zBoost SOHO Xtreme YX545x panel antenna where signals are the strongest and run the cable to an interior location where you want to create an optimized cell phone coverage zone. Keep in mind that though the booster works with PCS and cellular phones and devices, it will not boost a Wi-Fi signal.
