It is an In-Building Multi-Antenna Signal Booster With Extended Dynamic Range. The WilsonPro 4000R is the first rack mounted, cell booster to incorporate four separate signal amplifiers feeding multiple indoor antennas. The 4000R literally delivers the power of four boosters in a single rack mount unit, and provides cell coverage for up to 100,000 square feet of indoor space, or even more depending on the strength of the incoming signal from the tower.
Designed to provide enhanced in-building cellular coverage for commercial and large residential spaces, the WilsonPro 4000R amplifies weak cell signals to provide reliable voice and data coverage - including 4G, to inside spaces where signals may not penetrate.
Like all WilsonPro cellular signal boosters, the WilsonPro 4000R features cell site protections that auto-detect and prevent any cell tower interference. Wilson Electronics quality and an industry-leading three-year warranty make the 4000R a clear choice for the professional technology integrator.
Easy rack-mounted installation: The 4000R is intended to fit into an existing server rack. This design allows for a neat and clean installation while leaving the unit easily accessible.
Onboard Software for Better Control: Each indoor antenna path is independently and automatically controlled with onboard software, ensuring great connectivity throughout large spaces and multi-story buildings. Since all ports are independently controlled, each can adjust its gain level up or down as required by the conditions of the immediate signal environment without disrupting coverage from any other antenna.
Extended Dynamic Range (XDR) for continuous connectivity: Gives the 4000R much greater tolerance than any competing booster for a strong incoming signal from the tower. XDR lets the 4000R system work with an incoming signal stronger than any competing booster and never shuts down.
Color LCD for Easier Access: Unlike other boosters, the Wilson 4000R has a color LCD screen with four-way navigation, allowing integrators to have easy and effective control of the product.
Highest Downlink Power: Up to +12dB more downlink power than the competition allows for stronger signal in environments where the incoming signal is weak. The benefit is a stronger signal sent to the inside antennas, providing larger coverage area from a single booster.
Highest Uplink Power: This allows for a stronger signal transmitted to the tower, up to +3dB more than the competition, providing greater user capacity and increased range from the cell site.
Lower Overload and Shutdown Threshold: No matter how strong the outside signal, the WilsonPro 4000R never shuts down. This is a huge benefit in strong signal environments like cities and locations close to a carrier tower.
Intelligent Control: WilsonPro cellular boosters automatically adjust signal gain while still providing even signal coverage throughout the building.
Sophisticated Software: Cellular signals are constantly fluctuating. The software is always monitoring signal levels and making immediate adjustments as needed, allowing the booster to operate at maximum gain consistently.
Post Install Setup
The WilsonPRO 4000R is designed with advanced internal programming, which allows it to automatically adjust for a variety of conditions while still boosting weak signals.
Once the AC power cable and antenna cables are connected, turn the unit on by toggling the power switch located near the AC power receptacle, located at the rear of the unit.
The 4000R takes about 20 seconds to boot up. Once boot up is complete, the status screen will appear, showing the amplification and status of each port and band.
A solid green light indicates that a band/port is operating correctly with maximum allowable gain.
A solid yellow light indicates band/port gain reduction because of an oscillation condition. Reposition antennas (more separation between indoor and outdoor antennas, and pointed in opposite directions) and reboot (power cycle) the 4000R for maximum performance. When adequate separation is achieved, the yellow lights will return to green upon reboot. Note that when the light is yellow, the band/port is operational. However, performance is reduced.
A red light indicates a band/port which has been completely shut down because of a severe oscillation condition or repeated oscillation events. Reposition antennas (more separation between indoor and outdoor antennas, and pointed in opposite directions) and then reboot (power cycle) the 4000R to reactivate the band/port and maximize performance. When adequate separation is achieved, the red light(s) will return to green upon reboot.
Port/Band Status Screens
By pressing enter on a highlighted light, as shown, a more detailed status screen will be displayed for the highlighted band/port.
This screen provides specific band and port information. Including the strength of the received uplink and downlink signal, status details, and the amplifier gain.
In the presence of a strong outdoor cell tower signal, the 4000R will reduce it's "boost" (Gain) using internal Automatic Gain Control (AGC). This gain reduction is necessary to stay within FCC requirements. When this occurs, the 4000R has reached the "speed limit" so this is good!
Outside antenna should always be adjusted until the "DL" bar is maximized and "AGC" is indicated, if possible with a weak outside signal, this may not be possible.
Pressing enter on a highlighted light with a yellow light (Antenna 1, Band 12), as shown, will display the following.
This screen indicates band/port gain has been reduced because of the oscillation condition detected at a nearby band/port.
To return to the Status Screen press the any arrow button on the D-Pad. Unused indoor antenna ports should be enabled/disabled by pressing enter on the applicable port, from the status screen. "Disabled" will be displayed on the applicable port, as shown.
