Wilson amplifiers are small, portable, bi-directional devices that deliver service levels consistent with what would be expected in areas of high cell network coverage. They amplify a weak or shadowed signal in mobile, marine and in-building applications.
When using a Wilson amplifier in conjunction with Wilson antennas, the outside antenna will collect the cell tower signal and send it through the cable to the amplifier. Cell phones and cellular data cards (laptops) then communicate with the improved signal. When a cell phone or cellular data card transmits, the signal is amplified by the amplifier and broadcast back to the cell tower through the outside antenna.
