Wi-Ex zBoost Signal Boosters for Cell Phones [Live]

Wi-Ex zBoost Signal Boosters for Cell Phones [Live]

zBoost by Wi-Ex is a range of signal extenders that will improve cell and mobile phone coverage in weak areas. Todd and Don discuss zBoost's latest products from Sharon Cuppett, VP of Wi-Ex (and they get a mention on Wi-Ex's blog).

Wi-Ex launched two new products at CES, the first being the zBoost 4G-V, a signal booster for 4G frequencies on Verizon, the largest mobile carrier with over 100 million subscribers. A whole 4G product line is under development, including dual- and tri-band boosters. Available in Q2 2012 for around $220.

The second is an in-car booster, the zBoost zForce, which comprises a cradle for the phone and a magnetized antenna for the outside of the vehicle. Powered from the cigarette adapter, the zForce can boost coverage by about 10x, eliminating dead spots and increasing range in rural areas. Retailing at only $99, it will be available shortly.

(You'll have to watch the Blue Microphone interview to realize this, but in this video Sharon borrows Don's phone to demonstrate the zForce and then walks off with the phone at the end of the interview!)

UPnP Forum:Technology Standards for Universal Plug and Play [Live]

How to get them all to play together?

Home automation, entertainment, mobile devices, routers, cable modems, security, and a whole range of devices are a part of the connected modern home. That's the mission of the Universal Plug and Play Forum. It assumes IP networking, and then gets them all working together. A lot of it is behind the scenes, without the user being aware of any specific app, insuring that devices inter-operate. Over a thousand companies are part of the consortium. A number of other organizations (Such as DNLA) or devices or apps such as Skype, Xbox or Playstation transparently opening correct ports and authorizing activities within your home network.
