How It Works

telecom-clipart-RcG6GnzRiA High Output Repeater System greatly improves signal strength inside a building when using your cell phone for voice or data communication. It does this without any physical connection to your phone allowing you to walk around freely during a call. It even allows multiple phones to be used simultaneously for voice or data. A high output repeater system allows you to jump the concrete or steel building materials with the cell phone’s weak uplink (only 0.5 Watts, and this is generally what causes dropped calls-it’s not you losing the cell tower contrary to popular thought, it’s the cell tower losing YOUR WEAK OUTPUT CELL PHONE!!) and increases it to 8-15 Watts before throwing the uplink at the local cell tower (in a condensed cone). It also brings the tower’s downlink signals past the building materials and amplifies it to a high 8-15 Watts level (which gives you the 5 bars on the cell phone) so the cell phone will have a high level of downlink signal to work with when it communicates with the cell tower. The cell phone does not know the repeater is operating, it simply thinks it is close to and more exposed to the cell tower.  Cell phones (voice or data) and cellular data cards in that indoor area, will then communicate with the improved signal. When a cell phone or cellular device transmits, the signal is received by the inside antenna, boosted to a high level by the amplifier, and then broadcast back to the cell tower to stop the dropped calls or no indoor cell coverage.

These high output repeaters are set for the uplink and downlink frequencies for ALL the major Canadian cell carriers (Rogers, Bell, Telus, Sasktel and MTS) and most regional carriers. For the discount carriers, please ask us first.
The 75dB Pro-Grade#75-14 repeater system has approx. 30 times the power of the cell phone itself, The 75dB HO system will cover an approx. 30,000 square foot open warehouse in a good outside signal area. If you split the indoor signal into 2 indoor antennas which can be easily done with this very powerful repeater, you could cover a warehouse of approx. 50,000 square feet. For an on the phone assessment of your building, location and closest cell tower please contact us.

The high output linear systems (68dB, 75dB, and 80dB Linear Repeaters) have adjustable attenuators for commercial buildings in urban areas to calibrate them to the local cell towers to prevent noise attacks on the cell towers, maximize indoor coverage areas in buildings and make them adjustable for system expansion at a later date. They also have software that will automatically shut them down if the user does not set them up properly. This is to protect these powerful repeaters from amp block damage due to the user not knowing how to set them up properly. We need to do a power up calibration on the phone with you for these repeaters and this is included with the cost of the systems.

These repeaters are recommended for systems with long indoor shielded cable runs, very large indoor areas, and multiple indoor antenna set ups. We specialize in high output building systems in urban areas with multiple indoor antennas and our set up of the systems to work correctly with the carrier’s cell towers. We have also done many small scale systems for Telus customers and many Rogers Wireless and Fido stores that have indoor cell and data signal problems due to the metal and concrete buildings they are located in. Underground parking garages are another common use for our high output systems, as well as MANY modern typical commercial buildings that block ALL cell signals due to metal and concrete building materials that cell signals cannot penetrate.
