Wilson Electronics Agrees with Verizon on Signal Booster Specs (7/26/11)

Wilson Electronics and Verizon Wireless agreed on new technical specifications for consumer cellular boosters, which the two companies filed jointly in response to the FCC’s signal booster notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

“Boosters meeting new stricter design standards can ensure that private users, as well as government agencies, can continue to have reliable service in areas where signal coverage may not be optimal due to terrain or economics,” said Joe Banos, Wilson chief operating officer (COO). “The new standards will also ensure that carriers’ networks will be protected from cell site interference, which poorly built boosters might cause.”

“Wilson believes that its collaboration with Verizon Wireless was only possible because the regulatory framework for signal boosters was skillfully constructed by the commission to evenly balance the interests of consumers, manufacturers and carriers,” he added. “If the technical specifications in the proposal have been deemed sufficient by Verizon Wireless to protect its cellular networks, they should be deemed sufficient to protect all cellular networks.”
