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.

APX 6000 Leather Case with Fixed Belt LoopThe new battery provides 16% more capacity than the 2,650 mAh NNTN8930 UL model.  Because the PMNN4547 is about 3mm deeper, APX 6000 and SRX 2200 users will need to upgrade their carrying accessories.

Custom Molded Gel Ear Inserts Provide All Day Comfort and More

For Two- Way Radio Surveillance Kits with Acoustic TubesAcoustic Tube With Custom Ear Insert

Radio users who use a wired audio accessory with a mushroom-style ear tip and an acoustic tube would benefit from using a custom gel ear insert. Security, law enforcement, and nursing professionals working in normal noise environments prefer this optional accessory for their 2-way radio.

Compatible with most acoustic tubes, they are more comfortable for long work shifts. They also provide better ambient hearing because there is less blockage of the ear canal. The soft gel is easy to clean and hypo-allergenic.

Available for Left or Right Ear and 3 Sizes for Better Comfort
