Wilson Electronics has unveiled industry’s first enterprise-grade 5G C-band repeater, the Enterprise 1337R.
Compatible with Verizon and AT&T’s mid-band 5G frequencies operating at 3.7 to 3.8 GHz, the Enterprise 1337R will be available for testing and pre-order later in Q1 2022 and orders will open in Q2 2022.
“When C-band rolls out, we will be ready with the first-to-market Enterprise 1337R,” said Bruce Lancaster, CEO of Wilson Electronics. “Wherever there are barriers to cell signal, repeater technology will be essential to a network’s functionality. With the launch of the Enterprise 1337R, we are looking forward to helping make the promise of 5G a reality so businesses nationwide can support strong, uninterrupted in-building 5G C-band signals from Verizon and AT&T.”
It can immediately amplify the outdoor 5G C-band signal and rebroadcast it inside any commercial building, including retailers, restaurants, warehouses, office buildings, financial institutions, government buildings, hotels, multi-unit dwellings, and more.
Verizon and AT&T just launched the 5G C-band on January 19 and its rollout will affect nearly every industry looking to take advantage of 5G, from healthcare to retail and hospitality, education, commercial real estate, manufacturing, and more.
The Enterprise 1337R is available as a standalone 5G C-band-exclusive repeater and can be used on its own or as an add-on to any existing Enterprise 1300 or Enterprise 4300 repeater system.
Two separate versions of the Enterprise 1337R are available – one for users looking to amplify Verizon’s 5G C-band frequencies and one for users that would like to enhance AT&T’s 5G C-band frequencies. Carrier approval is required to turn on and begin using the Enterprise 1337R.
The Enterprise 1337R features automatic Time Division Duplex (TDD) synchronization, which instantly amplifies the C-band signal and requires no additional backhaul to extend 5G in a building.
Its built-in LTE connectivity provides access to the WilsonPro Cloud, which enables users to remotely manage the 1337R and receive real-time performance reports and system alerts on any connected device.
One of WilsonPro’s most customizable repeaters, the Enterprise 1337R features two indoor and two outdoor antenna ports for a flexible setup that can support 2×2 multiple-input / multiple-output (MIMO) or split-mode setup for maximum bandwidth.
It requires indoor and outdoor C-band antennas and 50-ohm coaxial cable with N-type connectors.
