DALLAS. weBoost used its booth at the Great American Trucking Show to feature the new Drive 4G-X OTR, an all-in-one signal booster kit for truck drivers. The Drive 4G-X OTR is weBoost’s most powerful mobile booster, enabling up to a 32-times stronger signal on the road so drivers with lengthy travels can stay conveniently connected to those they love and on whom they rely.
The Drive 4G-X OTR is carrier agnostic, so the booster will successfully amplify signals for Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T users alike, allowing everyone to stay connected, according to the company, which markets cell booster products around the world. It simultaneously amplifies voice and data for devices operating on 3G, 4G LTE or legacy bands. Neither a wired Internet connection nor Wi-Fi is needed for the booster to function, and there are no monthly fees.
“In our increasingly connected world, bringing a reliable cell signal to everyone, from within city-centers to the open road, is important to us,” said Bruce Lancaster, Wilson Electronics’ CEO. “Truck drivers make many sacrifices on long-haul journeys, especially spending countless hours on the road away from their homes and loved ones. As a matter of safety as well as maintaining those relationships, staying connected should not be one of those sacrifices.”
The Drive 4G-X OTR amplifies existing cell signal from the nearest cell tower to bring extremely capable coverage to truckers anywhere on the road. The result is a reliable cell signal and the capability to receive a dispatch, find a safe rest stop, call home during lunch, stream music or use navigation with ease. Installation is a six-step process and the kit includes the all-new 4G-OTR antenna and mount, the Drive 4G-X signal booster, a slim low profile, secondary antenna, a mounting bracket and a 12V DC power supply.
The 24-inch 4G-OTR antenna achieves a high gain signal output that surpasses other antennas of its size, the company says. Its compactness provides a low visual impact for drivers, yet it is designed to resist shock and wear in heavy-duty applications and rough conditions. It is also available in a shock spring mount and additional mast heights to accommodate a variety of drives.
The antenna covers cell phone frequencies from 700, 800, 1700 and 1900 to 2200 MHz.
The Drive 4G-X OTR is available for purchase online and through resellers for $499.99 MSRP.
