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.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era.
