New LTE-enabled smart signal booster optimizes indoor coverage for T-Mobile Austria business customers
SAN DIEGO – March 31, 2015 – Nextivity Inc. today announced that T-Mobile Austria is deploying the new LTE-enabled Cel-Fi PRO smart signal booster to enhance its LTE coverage for subscribers. This latest deployment is an extension of the agreement that Nextivity has had in place for many years with Deutsche Telekom AG to distribute the first two generations of Cel-Fi to T-Mobile Austria customers that have indoor cellular coverage issues.
“As an early adopter and innovator in the deployment of our Cel-Fi smart signal boosters, the move to our LTE-class booster is the natural next step for T-Mobile Austria,” says Werner Sievers, CEO of Nextivity. “We are proud to once again be the partner of choice as T-Mobile makes Cel-Fi PRO available to its customers, ensuring seamless connectivity to its LTE network for those who rely on indoor cellular coverage to run their businesses.”
“Improved voice and data services play an important role in increasing customer satisfaction and loyalty as we roll out our LTE network to 90% of the Austrian population by the end of 2015,” says Athanasios Avgeridis, SVP Operations Technology, for T-Mobile Austria. “We are committed to doing whatever we can to enhance our LTE coverage and ensure the best service and network experience for our customers. The Cel-Fi PRO smart signal booster for LTE is exactly what we need to address the majority of indoor coverage issues experienced by our customers.”
Cel-Fi PRO is built on Nextivity’s proprietary third-generation Cel-Fi baseband processor for the indoor wireless coverage market. It quadruples wireless data speeds and eliminates dropped calls for wireless subscribers in their homes/offices by eradicating in-building dead zones and boosting signal strength.
Cel-Fi PRO provides up to 13,000 sq. ft. of coverage and four times the data throughput for HSPA+/LTE. It is also the most powerful signal booster on the market, delivering 10 times the gain of earlier versions and 1,000 times the gain of analog boosters. Cel-Fi PRO is also the first signal booster to support both UMTS and LTE (including VoLTE); and the first to maximize capacity and coverage by automatically configuring and prioritizing the use of available bands to create a better overall experience for users.
