NEW: weBoost Home Multi-Room (470144) Receives FCC Certification

UPDATE 8/29/2019: Wilson Electronics has announced the new weBoost 470144 Home MultiRoom and the weBoost 470145 Home Complete! The new Home MultiRoom will be the successor to the weBoost Connect 4G and the Home Complete will be the successor to the weBoost Connect 4G-X. Both systems feature new indoor and outdoor antenna designs and support up to +12 dBm of downlink output power for larger coverage areas.

Original Post:
Wilson Electronics has been a busy company lately! Their WilsonPro division recently released the new WilsonPro EnterPrise 1300/1300R and 4300/4300R and we just received word that a new product has been approved by the FCC.

Based on the FCC certification, this product appears to be for the weBoost line due to the name and the SKU and it appears to be called the weBoost 470144 Home Multi-Room. All of the information we have is based on the FCC website which lists all products that receive an FCC certification, so details are limited!


Based on the image above, it looks like the booster uses F connectors. This is similar to the existing weBoost Connect 4G, so we would expect this kit to come with either RG-6 or RG-11 coax cables.

We read through the FCC test reports and there's a lot to like! The most exciting news is that the new Home Multi-Room is capable of higher output powers than previous weBoost systems. Based on the report, the amplifier is capable of +21.7 to 25.1 dBm on the Uplink side and +9.0 to +12.2 dBm on the downlink side! For comparison, the weBoost Connect 4G-X has a maximum output power of 0 dBm on the downlink, so these levels make the Home Muli-Room more similar to the Wilson Pro 70 Plus. The extra uplink power will help in rural areas and the extra downlink power will help with more coverage with a moderate to strong outdoor signal, so it's a win for all customers!

In terms of gain, the FCC reports ranged from 59.4 to 71.4 on the downlink depending on the frequency band, so that's in-line with the larger existing boosters and near the FCC maximum, so it's hard to improve!

There's still a lot that we don't know. For example, we don't know what kinds of cables will this system come with and which antennas will be standard. We don't really know what it looks like and if it'll have any other unique aspects that wouldn't show up in FCC test. While there's a lot that we don't know, we are excited about this new product and we look forward to bringing you all of the details when it becomes available!
