Based in St. George, Utah, Wilson designs and manufactures a line of cell phone signal boosters.
In addition to exhibiting its line of fixed and mobile cellular booster antennas at Capitol’s booth, Wilson will also launch a new certification program for commercial integrators and others in the custom installation market. The Wilson Certified Installer Program will consist of both sales and technical instruction, so installers will learn the ins and outs of Wilson’s various booster products and their capabilities, including new products geared specifically for custom installations, as well as the best way to pitch the products as home automation system add-ons.
The company will be conducting its first training session at the show, with future training to be conducted primarily at Capitol’s Education Center through its CLI (Capitol Learning Institute) On-Campus program.
“Cellular reception continues to be a problem in certain geographic areas, particularly in new home developments,” said Curt Hayes, president and CFO of Capitol. “Cellular boosters offer a tremendous up-sell opportunity for custom installers, which is why we are excited to be able to showcase Wilson’s products and be involved with the debut of its new certification program.”
Wilson Electronics provides signal boosting solutions for a variety of cell phones and cellular devices to help end-users overcome the problem of dropped calls, limited range, and slow data rates for cell phones and data cards. Available in easy to use plug-and-play kits as well as customizable configurations to suit any application, the company’s boosters not only pick up and amplify weak cellular signals, but they also transmit a more powerful signal back to the tower, according to the company.
