SureCall Fusion5X 2.0 vs. Wilson Pro1100

Whether you choose to buy SureCall Fusion5X 2.0 or Wilson Pro1100, know the differences in aspects that matter - uplink power, downlink gain, and downlink power. Explanations of each of these 3 important terms is explained below the tables.

Uplink Power:

Wilson Pro1100 exceeds with higher uplink power across the board for all frequency bands.

      Fusion5X 2.0 Wilson Pro1100
Band 12 Lower 700 Rural Frequencies 21.7 24.4
Band 13 Upper 700 20.9 23.5
Band 5 Cellular 19.4 23.5
Band 25 PCS Urban Frequencies 21.7 24.0
Band 4 AWS 20.3 23.5

Downlink Gain:

SureCall Fusion5X 2.0 wins in high bands which are mainly used in urban areas.

      Fusion5X 2.0 Wilson Pro1100
Band 12 Lower 700 Rural Frequencies 58.4 60.8
Band 13 Upper 700 58.4 60.8
Band 5 Cellular 61.6 62.4
Band 25 PCS Urban Frequencies 71.1 65.4
Band 4 AWS 69.7 66.2

Downlink Power:

Fusion 5X will provide more inside coverage than Pro 1100 when outside signal is strong.

      Fusion5X 2.0 Wilson Pro1100
Band 12 Lower 700 Rural Frequencies 15.8 15.0
Band 13 Upper 700 16.1 15.0
Band 5 Cellular 16.4 15.3
Band 25 PCS Urban Frequencies 16.4 15.2
Band 4 AWS 15.4 15.2

Signal Booster Performance Metrics:

  1. Uplink Power (dBm):
    The maximum output power that a booster transmits from the mobile device to the cell tower.
    Uplink path fails before downlink path. Higher uplink power, keeps device connected further from tower.
    Higher uplink power can also trigger a higher density LTE modulation (faster data speeds).
  2. Downlink Power (dBm):
    The maximum output power a booster transmits from the cell tower to the mobile device.
    Maximum downlink power, directly prescribes the maximum coverage potential.
    When the outside signal is strong, the maximum in-building coverage is defined by the maximum downlink power of the booster.
  3. Downlink Gain (dB):
    Amount of amplification a signal is increased. Input power dBm + Gain dB = Output power dBm.
    The higher the Gain, the larger the in-building coverage up-to the booster’s maximum downlink power.
    System Gain = active booster gain + passive antenna gain – passive cable loss.

  • This is an effective breakdown of all the specifications you need to know about before buying a cell phone booster. You need to have this information before you buy anything and for me, it’s good information to have before you contact a customer service representative.

  • I don’t think there’s much of a difference between the brands SureCall and Wilson because both been making quality cell phone boosters for a while. For me, the specifications are close enough that I would opt for the SureCall, just because I know more people who have them.

  • I started reading this chart and my head was getting ready to explode. Thankfully, I got to the part that explains what uplink power, downlink power, and downlink gain means. This gives me a better understanding of what each cell phone booster will do for me.
