50 Ohm vs 75 Ohm

on May 10, 2013

For cellular signal boosting solutions, Wilson Electronics offer components which use two difference impedances, 50 Ohm and 75 Ohm. Impedance is the measure of resistance to the flow of electrical energy. For a cellular signal boosting solution, it is smartest to use antennas, amplifiers and cables of the same impedance.

A 50 Ohm cable is intended for two-way data signal. Cables of this impedance are used in cellular towers as well as routers and Ethernet networks. This type of technology is preferred for a cellular signal boosting solution.

75 Ohm coaxial cables are used in the majority of households within the United States. This type of cable is designed for audio and video signals. As a result, cable and satellite receivers require a coaxial cable which has 75 Ohm impedance. Since this type of cable is so commonly used in households, many customers prefer to utilize a 75 Ohm system.

The main consideration comes down to what the best system for your needs is. While 50 Ohm gives you the preferred technology for a boosting system, the 75 Ohm works extremely well and allows you to utilize your residential infrastructure.
