World's Most Advanced 4G Mobile Cellular Signal Booster Covers 5 Spectrum Bands

The Sleek 4G signal booster from Wilson Electronics boosts 4G signals for AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon customers, as well as legacy signals for all U.S. carriers

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Promising stronger signals and fewer dropped connections, Wilson Electronics (www.WilsonElectronics.com), North America's leading maker of cellular signal boosters, today announced the Sleek® 4G, the world's most advanced 4G mobile booster designed to improve cell reception in cars, trucks, boats and other vehicles.

The Sleek 4G boosts cellular signals inside a vehicle for customers whose devices operate on all U.S. carriers' 4G networks (except WiMAX). The Sleek 4G also will also amplify pre-existing signals, which includes all major carriers and their legacy voice and data services. This allows the user to enjoy a strong, reliable signal even where 4G services are unavailable.

Benefits include fewer dropped connections and no-service "dead zones," faster data transfer rates and improved battery life for wireless devices. The Sleek 4G was named an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree, and is on display in the Wilson Electronics booth #35666 through Jan. 11 at the International CES in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"The Sleek 4G offers cellular customers a complete mobile signal boosting solution," said Laine Matthews, Wilson's director of business development. "It maintains a strong, reliable signal for any cellular device. We're always striving to deliver the best boosters to our customers, and it's great that we can offer a device that works with multiple carriers' 4G networks, as well as legacy networks, that's this small and this affordable."

The Sleek 4G measures just 2.5 by 4.5 by 2.5 inches (6.4 x 11.4 x 6.4 cm) and weighs only three ounces (85 grams). The device is sold as a plug-and-play kit and is expected to be available later this month from Wilson retailers with a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $199.95. No tools are required for installation, and most any consumer can install the Sleek 4G in his or her vehicle in a matter of minutes.

The Sleek 4G's patented, all-in-one cradle design facilitates use of a Bluetooth headset or other hands-free device by those behind the wheel. An optional accessory kit converts the Sleek 4G into an indoor booster suitable for home or office. The Sleek 4G is FCC type accepted.

The Sleek 4G delivers more than 20 times the power of a typical cell phone, and works with all U.S. cellular devices including tablets, modems and mobile hotspots like the Mi-Fi™ and JetPack™. Like all Wilson signal boosters, this device features cell site protection techniques developed through cooperative effort between Wilson and several major cellular carriers that prevent the possibility of interference with any nearby cell tower.

How it Works
The roof-mounted antenna receives a weak signal from a cell tower and sends it over a thin coax cable to the Sleek 4G cradle. The signal is then boosted by the Sleek 4G's built-in amplifier and transmitted to the cell phone or other device by the Sleek 4G's built-in antenna. The process is then repeated in reverse to send a boosted signal from the phone or other device back to the cell tower.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...

Get ready to show them the money!
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
