A mobile phone booster provides the ultimate result in any area where cellular devices cannot work properly due to weak signals. This device features simple operation, installation, built-in indoor antenna and no interference. It could also maintain indoor electromagnetism environments, protract cellular battery life and reduce radiation of mobile phones. A mobile phone repeater is ideal for both home and office purposes.
How Does The Booster/Repeater Works?
Its works by amplifying weak signals, boosting it, and then rebroadcasting it inside the area you need. Most mobile signal boosters have a three-part system.
- The Antenna to capture weak cell signal
- The Amplifier to boost weak signal
- The inside antenna (Once signal is boosted from the amplifier, it is passed onto the inside antenna to rebroadcast the signal)
- Search a place with a strong and steady signal on housetop with your mobile phone and fix up an outdoor antenna, make sure it points to signal tower by adjusting its direction.
- Connect outdoor and indoor antenna with cable and connect outdoor antenna to “BTS” port in repeater through cable.
- The indoor antenna should be connected to the mobile port in repeater through cable.
- Plug the power adaptor of the booster into AC power socket and complete the installation.
Do Mobile Signal Boosters Really Work?
Yes. Mobile signal boosters amplify both the signal being received by and sent from your phone, resulting in stronger signals.
Are Cell Phone Boosters Worth It?
Depends, but consider: What did you spend on your last phone? How much do you pay every year for your cell service? Chances are like your household spends a lot of money per year on cell service already. Spending money on a mobile signal booster to make sure you’re getting good coverage and better data speeds is worth it.
The FCC’s Mobile Signal Booster Regulations
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is the organization that controls the use of cellular frequencies. In 2014, the FCC created new regulations. They were two sets, one set for “broadband” that boost all cellular signals from all carriers, and another “carrier-specific” boosters that only boost the signal of one carrier at a time.
“Broadband” Booster Regulations
- The gain of the amplifier must be
Less than 64 dB for the 700 MHz band
Less than 65 dB for the 850 MHz band
Less than 72 dB for the 1900 MHz PCS band
Less than 71.2 dB for the 2100 MHz AWS band
- The downlink output power of the entire amplifier system, including the losses from the cable, can’t be more than 12 dB.
“Carrier-specific” Booster Regulations:
- The amplifier should not gain more than 100dB
- The downlink output power of the entire amplifier should not be more than 12 dB per 5 Mhz block.
