The antenna installed outdoors collects signal from the base station. The antenna then sends the collected signal to the mobile booster (repeater) indoors. The mobile booster amplifies the signal and broadcasts it to your devices via the whip aerial attached to the booster. ForDAS (Distribution Antenna System)which is designed for large commercial or large buildings, the mobile booster is able to broadcast the amplified signals to multiple whip aerials which are extended from the base unit to other areas of the building. Note: It is important to get a coax cable of appropriate length. Shorter travel distance of signal means...

Why do I have bad Cell Signal?

Posted by David Hughes on

The Cause Building Insulation Network signals weaken as they penetrate walls. In addition to that, advances in building technology make it even harder to get through. For example (Image 1), the foil backed membranes are installed in walls to reduce heat loss of the building, keeping its residents warm and cosy during cold weather. However, at the same time, these membranes reflect back the network signal from the base station, allowing minimal network signals to get in through the windows.   Distance from the base station A signal travels from the base station, it loses strength over distance travelled. Network...

Besides that, the material of vehicles, for instance aluminium and reinforced steel blocks off signals from penetrating the vehicle body. These are small problems that can be easily solved by installing a mobile booster in your vehicle. Choosing the right mobile booster The coverage area of a car is small, and therefore a...
