At our annual National Sales Meeting we recognized seven products for their boundary-pushing design, capabilities, and creativity. We’re excited to announce the winners of our 2019 Innovation Awards, which include four commercial products changing the landscape of their markets and a trio of mobile device accessories that deliver new technology and an exciting brand collaboration.
Wilson Electronics – WilsonPro 1000C
The WilsonPro Pro 1000C amplifies weak cellular signals to provide reliable voice and data coverage–including 4G - to inside spaces where signals may not penetrate and with new eXtended Dynamic Range (XDR) technology, the amplifier never shuts off due to a strong outside signal or changes in outside signals.
Comba – CriticalPoint™ Antenna Monitoring System
The CriticalPoint Antenna Monitoring System is powered by RFID tech and has real-time monitoring for individual antennas and passive links. The unit covers UHF, 700/800MHz systems, 50 antennas/20dB cable loss (from the Controller to the antenna).
CommScope – SnapTak PIM-Guard Adjustable Hangers
SnapTak PIM-guard hangers were designed to simplify tower top cable management & reduce PIM. Traditional metal hangers require custom grommets for every size cable, increasing installation time. SnapTak is designed with a section that self-adjusts to the cable diameter during installation.
PCTEL – Public Safety Network Testing Solution – P25 and Cellular
PCTEL’s solution automates testing of indoor public safety networks and produces reports commonly required as a condition of building occupancy. Options available for P25 and cellular (LTE/FirstNet) decode. Packages include IBflex® scanning receiver and SeeHawk® Touch software.

PopSockets – Swappable PopGrips
PopGrip allows users to easily change out the swappable PopTop. Simply push the top down, twist, and release the top portion of the grip, and replace with another design. The twist off PopGrip also facilitates easy wireless charging for users whose cases are too thick to charge through with the PopGrip.
