Alexandro Jimenez | 08/10/2020

Commercialized lighting has evolved to include LED technology, and while the luminaires have received most of the attention to date, it’s the lighting controls—including Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) lighting—that will ultimately be a game-changer for manufacturing. Professionals responsible for planning, building, installing, operating, and maintaining localized power-generating facilities and equipment need to understand what it is, how it works, and why it might be a strategic asset in order to make the best decisions for their project.

Cell Phone Booster Units – What They Are And What They Can And Can’t Do

David Rowell | 07/14/2020

Signal boosters can’t work miracles, although, at times, it might seem like they are. They can help improve weak signals, potentially increasing the coverage area when you’re in areas of marginal signal coverage, and their improved quality signals often translate to dramatically faster data speeds. If you’re unaware of any limitations or challenges with your phone, then there’s no point in getting one. But if your phone is often dropping calls, and if your data speeds are terribly slow, you should first use a signal measurement app to see if you have good or poor signal strength. If the signal strength is good, then it is unlikely a booster will help. If it is poor, a booster might dramatically improve your connection. Several different companies manufacture cell phone signal boosters. Wilson Electronics is a well respected American company and we have tested one of their weBoost units, reviewed here. We can’t speak for other brands, but you do have choices, including SolidRF and SureCall. If/when choosing a signal boosting unit, make sure it supports the wireless network and frequency bands that your phone supports. Learn More
