Next generation smart signal booster is the latest innovation for the in-building cellular market
Nextivity today announced the launch of the Cel-Fi SOLO Smart Signal Booster at Mobile World Congress 2019. Designed for use on carrier networks globally, and featuring compliance with the latest regulatory requirements enacted by the European Union, Cel-Fi SOLO is Nextivity’s newest CE-certified cellular coverage solution. Significant performance advances have been achieved, with features like five (5) RF front-ends, which make the product deployable into most networks, and 60 MHz of relay bandwidth – almost twice that of the Cel-Fi product previously available for the European market. The hardware is modem-ready; future software updates will enable the product to be remotely managed through Nextivity’s carrier-grade, GDPR and SOC 2-compliant, WAVE software platform.
The Cel-Fi SOLO Smart Signal Booster improves 3G / 4G / LTE voice and data cellular service in frequencies from 698 MHz to 2700 MHz, inclusive of bands 1, 3, 7, 8, and 20, solving coverage problems by eliminating dead zones and dropped calls. This easy-to-install solution is based on Nextivity’s award-winning Intelliboost™ chipset, combining best-in-class performance with an unconditionally network safe guarantee. Delivering up to 100dB of gain, it is the most powerful in-building coverage solution available for Europe’s small business and residential markets, ensuring subscribers have reliable cellular service in spaces up to 1,500 square meters per system.
“Cel-Fi SOLO is the newest Smart Signal Booster in our lineup of products designed to address the universal challenge of poor indoor cellular coverage. Taking our engineering to the next level, SOLO provides nearly twice the relay bandwidth in a single unit design that meets the needs of European regulators, network operators, and our distribution partners,” says Werner Sievers, CEO of Nextivity. “It reinforces our commitment to innovation and delivering the world’s best and most advanced cellular coverage solutions.”
Cel-Fi SOLO’s flexible architecture allows it to be deployed in a variety of scenarios, depending on the needs at the site. It can be installed out-of-box with the included simple to attach donor and server antennas, or a variety of external antenna options are available for more advanced installations. Cel-Fi’s intelligent gain control and echo-cancellation ensures the system will perform optimally. The solution is supported by the Cel-Fi WAVE software platform which can be used to register, set-up, optimize, remotely monitor, manage, and update Nextivity’s family of Cel-Fi products.
Cel-Fi SOLO will be available in partnership through mobile operators and their distributor partners. Contact Nextivity sales for availability in individual European countries, or visit team member at Mobile World Congress, Hall 3 Stand 3H50MR
