The WilsonPro 1100 is Wilson Electronics’ next-generation professional-grade cell signal amplifier for medium-sized and large buildings. The Pro 1100 has all the features and more of the WilsonPro 1000, but is one-quarter the size and less than half the price of the previous model.

The Pro 11000 is a wall-mounted, single-amplifier system that can cover 25,000 to 35,000 square feet with one inside broadcast antenna (with sufficient outside signal strength). Its inside antenna port can also be split to support up to four broadcast antennas for improved cellular coverage in multiple areas of your building.

The WilsonPro 1100’s on-board software continuously monitors and and adjusts the amplfier’s gain level, as needed. With Wilson’s patented XDR (eXtended Dynamic Range) technology, the Pro 1100 will never overpower, shut down, or experience oscillation between the inside and outside antennas.

The color LCD touch screen allow installers and administrators to monitor gain on each cellular band and disable specific bands, if needed.

Who is this for?

  • Office buildings, medical/business/education/government campuses, warehouses/distribution centers, and other multi-floor and/or large buildings.
  • Buildings in urban locations with building materials that block outside cell signal (steel, low-e glass, concrete, plaster, etc.).
  • Buildings with floor space below ground level, and other places where cell reception is poor.
  • Building in rural and remote locations, where outside cellular signal is weak.
  • Those who have heavy cellular user and data loads.
  • Those who frequently experience dropped calls, undelivered texts, or slow 4G data.

How it works

The WilsonPro 1100 receives available outside cell signal, amplifies it, and rebroadcasts it inside your building. This allows you to stay connected in areas where cell service is poor, or where your building’s construction materials interfere with signals from local cell towers.

Works with all major cellular carriers

The WilsonPro 1100 works with all major wireless carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, T‑Mobile, Sprint, U.S. Cellular, and most others.

How much area will this product cover?

The following chart is based on open interior space with no obstructions (walls, doors, etc.). Drywall, plaster, wood, concrete, steel, and stone all affect radio transmissions. Cell phones also operate in several different frequencies that penetrate obstructions differently. In general, the stronger the outside cell signal, the greater the inside broadcast distance. Please contact us if you have any questions about coverage for this booster.

Outside signal strength
Approximate coverage area
Weak (−100 dBm)
Up to 3,500 sq ft
Moderate (−90 dBm)
Up to 18,000 sq ft
Strong (−80 dBm)
Up to 30,000 sq ft

These coverage area estimates have been calculated from industry standards and Powerful Signal's years of experience installing cellular amplification systems. Powerful Signal considers any figures from other retailers that exceed these to be inaccurate and unrealistic.


In an office environment, it's best to have your Wilson Pro system installed by a professional. A professional installer will have knowledge of local building codes, and have the proper tools and experience to make sure your system is set up and configured correctly. Contact Powerful Signal and we can arrange for one of our nationwide professional installers to give you a quote.

How does a building cell phone signal booster work?

A building cell phone signal amplifier system is made up of four major components:

  1. A cell phone signal amplifier and power supply.
  2. An outside donor antenna.
  3. An inside broadcast antenna.
  4. Coax cables that connect the antennas to the amplifier.

Cell phone signal amplifier

The cell phone signal amplifier—sometimes called a booster—is the core component of the system.

The amplifier is bi-directional: It amplifies both the signal your phone receives from the tower and the signal your phone sends to the tower. A weak cell signal is received by the outside antenna and amplified by the booster; the strengthened signal is then rebroadcasted by the inside antenna to your phone. The amplifier also boosts the connection back to the cell tower. (There still has to be some cell signal for the booster to amplify, though; it cannot “multiply zero”).

The most convenient spot to place the cell phone signal amplifier is in an I.T. closet, network box, attic, or garage; this will keep it out of sight, but still accessible if you need to make any changes to the system. The location you select to install the amplifier needs to have a 110-volt AC wall outlet nearby (typically within 6 feet) to plug in the amplifier’s power supply.

Directional and omnidirectional antennas

Donor antennas: directional (left) and omnidirectional (right).

Outside donor antenna

The donor antenna communicates with your wireless carrier’s cell tower. It’s typically mounted on a pole on the roof of the building, clear of any surrounding obstacles.

Some donor antennas are directional, meaning they need to be pointed toward the strongest nearby cell tower. Typically you’ll choose a directional antenna if your building is in a remote location with one distant cell tower providing weak outside signal.

An omnidirectional antenna picks up signals from multiple cell towers in different directions. Usually you’ll choose an omni antenna if your building is in an area with several surrounding towers, and especially if you have plenty of outside cell signal that just isn’t penetrating inside your building.

The outside antenna needs to be placed with adequate separation from the inside antenna(s), and, if you’re using a directional antenna, not pointing toward your inside antenna(s) so their signals overlap. Without adequate separation, the outside and inside antennas may conflict with each other (a condition known as oscillation), which will cause the amplifier to reset or shut itself off.

For more information about choosing the right donor antenna, see our blog entry, “Directional or omnidirectional: Which antenna is best?

Panel and dome antennas

Broadcast antennas: panel (left) and dome (right).

Inside broadcast antenna

The broadcast antenna communicates with cell phones inside the building. It’s typically mounted on a ceiling or a wall.

A dome antenna is mounted on the ceiling, and broadcasts its signal downward in a 360° pattern. Domes work best in situations where the ceiling is level with the floor (not angled), low enough to be reached with a ladder, and where there is access above the ceiling to attach coax cable to the antenna. Domes typically provide the best signal coverage, and are also less noticeable than panel antennas.

A panel antenna is mounted on a wall, and broadcasts its signal forward, away from the panel, in a beam 60–70° wide. Panels work best in situations where a dome antenna is not easy to install or would not be horizontal to the floor, or where pulling cable through walls and ceilings is not an option. Panels can be concealed in recessed areas behind drywall.

Basic cell phone signal amplifier kits usually include one broadcast antenna. Larger, more complex buildings with custom-designed systems have multiple inside broadcast antennas that cover more area.

400, RG6, and RG58 coax cable

Terminated coax cable: 400 cable with N‑connector (left), RG6 cable with F‑connector (middle), RG58 cable with SMA‑connector (right).

Coax cable

Lengths of coax cable connect the donor antenna and the broadcast antenna(s) to the cell phone signal amplifier.

Any signal sent through a cable is going to result in attenuation (signal loss). Since the objective of installing a cell phone signal amplifier system is to increase signal, the length and type of cable in the system is an important consideration.

Commercial and large-home systems use 400-type coax cable or plenum coax cable, terminated with N‑connectors. These cables are very thick and have very low signal loss, which makes them ideal for long runs from the amplifier to the antenna (sometimes hundreds of feet). They are, however, very rigid, so they’re not well-suited for use around corners and in tight spaces. These types of cables are often used by professional installers.

Small home amplifer systems typically use RG6 coax cable, terminated with F‑connectors, the same found in everyday cable and satellite TV systems. Compared to 400 coax, RG6 has more than twice the signal loss per foot, but it is also much thinner and easier for consumers to work with. (Homeowners who need long runs of cable might want to consider using RG11 coax cable with F‑connectors; RG11 is more rigid and expensive than RG6, but has much lower signal loss.)

Single-room amplifiers often use RG58 coax cable with SMA‑connectors. This is the thinnest cable for in-building systems. Because of its high signal loss (60% greater than RG6), it’s suitable only for the shortest runs.

Optional components

The four parts above are all that’s required for a complete cell phone signal amplifier system. Other components can protect or enhance a system:

  • A lightning surge protector insulates the amplifier against a sudden electrical surge from a lightning strike to the donor antenna.
  • Splitters and couplers divide the signal from an amplifier to two or more broadcast antennas, expanding the signal coverage inside your building. (These should only be used with commercial or large-home amplifiers, and where there is adequate outside signal.)
  • Attenuators can be used when the outside signal is so strong that it’s overwhelming the amplifier. (These should only be used with professionally-installed commercial amplifiers.)
