Motorola DTR700 License Free Digital 2-Way Radio Now Shipping

Motorola BatwingsMotorola Solutions digital DTR series 2-way radios have been solving on-site communications problems for hospitality, education, and retail workers for over ten years. The entry-level radio’s low cost, digital features, and no FCC license requirement make this a popular radio choice for first time users. The latest DTR release from Motorola is even better.

DTR700 is Thin, Lightweight, IP54 Rugged, and Has a Color Display

License Free 900 MHz Radio for On-site UseThe new DTR700 has been improved with a rugged IP54 rating, color display, and longer 16.5 hour battery. The 900 MHz frequencies provide better building penetration than VHF or UHF bands.

The DTR700 offers flexible communication options, including one-to-one calling and one-to-many calling. Caller ID, audible or variable call alert, and interference-free voice audio make this a good choice.

DTR700 is compatible with the DTR650, DTR550, and DTR410 legacy radios. All of these models have been cancelled but are still supported by Motorola’s repair depot.  The DTR700 warranty has also been improved to 24 months.

DTR700 Offers Many Accessory Options

The radio uses the same popular 2-pin audio connector as other Motorola DTR, BPR, CLS, RD, and RM model radios. There is a new HKLN4601 surveillance kit with clear acoustic tube and HKLN4604 swivel earpiece that stays outside the ear.  The PMNN4578 2500 mAh battery and PMPN4469 AC charger are new for this radio. There is also a PMPN4465 6 pocket charger that charges spare batteries or radios.

Pricing and more info for the DTR700 can be found on our online store. We also offer a DTR700 Six Pack Bundle complete with HKLN4601 surveillance earpiece accessories.

Cel-Fi Smart Signal Boosters Improve 3G/4G/LTE Cellular Coverage In Buildings and Vehicles

Cellular Smart Signal Boosters

Cel-Fi by Nextivity is a Carrier approved cellular booster product family designed to improve 3G/4G/LTE voice and data. Basically, they amplify a weak (at least one bar) carrier signal using a donor antenna and distribute it indoors using a server antenna. They are sometimes called BDA’s (Bi-Directional Amplifiers).

Unlike cell boosters in the past, Cel-Fi uses advanced smart technology that minimizes interference and desense.They provide a bigger coverage footprint indoors by amplifying signals up tp 100 dB. Cel-Fi is designed to improve a single Carrier but can be co-located for a second Carrier without degradation.

Cel-Fi smart boosters are simple plug and play solutions with internal antennas, packaged bundles for vehicles or small buildings, and scaleable DAS systems for facilities up to 200,000 sq ft.

Easy Install Cel-Fi Duo+ and Pro for Small Offices Up to 15,000 Sq. Ft.

The Duo+ and Pro products have internal antennas and no cables to connect. All you need is at least one bar of 4G LTE signal. The Duo+ is available for Verizon or T-Mobile and the Pro is designed for AT&T users. This solution is for indoor use only and takes a few minutes for installation.

Rugged Cel-Fi GO X and GO M Use External Antennas for Buildings and Vehicles

The Cel-Fi GO X and GO M are housed in a NEMA 4 Rated weather resistant enclosure for indoor or outdoor environments. They use external antennas to provide more flexibility and include Carrier Switching. Using the free WAVE app you can reprogram the GO X and GO M for a different Carrier if needed. It can also be changed from vehicle use to building and vice versa.

The Cel-Fi GO Series require more planning for building solutions. Antenna choices, splitters, and cable lengths will factor in the design. As a certified Cel-Fi reseller, our employees receive extensive training in pre-sale design and installation.

We offer Cel-Fi GO M bundles with antennas for moving vehicles. These are optimized for service vans, command vehicles, and RV’s. The kits are complete and optimized for Verizon or AT&T. There is also the Cel-Fi GO RED that boosts AT&T FirstNet Bands 12 and 14.

Cel-Fi Quatra 1000 & Quatra 2000 Scalable DAS In-Building Coverage Solutions

The Cel-Fi Quatra series is an easy-to-deploy, scalable (DAS) distributed antenna system for buildings up to 200,000 sq ft. It operates in off-air mode or can be integrated with carrier small cell equipment and operated in distributed small cell mode, creating a Supercell. The Quatra 1000 supports a single Carrier and the Quatra 2000 supports dual Carriers.

About 80% of all cellular traffic is used indoors or in vehicles. It you have weak in-building or in-vehicle coverage, Cel-Fi by Nextivity is the recommended solution. If you have questions or need a formal quote, contact our Dover, Delaware office at 302-734-9250 during normal business hours.
