ENHANCED CELLULAR CAPACITY & COVERAGE In the office, at home, for business or pleasure our reliance on smartphones and tablets demands connectivity. Our way of life depends on having a hassle-free, wireless experiences anywhere, any time. However, even with more than 300,000 cell towers, staying connected is sometimes harder than you think. It's estimated that 80 percent of all cellular use takes place within buildings or structures and the experience will be dictated by: building materials and design, which can significantly degrade the macro tower's radio frequency signals; distance from the macro cell tower; the number of simultaneous users, who can rapidly consume the available bandwidth; and the QoS requirements of the application versus the available network performance. While it was once a take-it or leave-it proposition to rely on carriers to increase their tower deployments, that model simply cannot keep pace with demand. In today's world, a mobile device that can stream a video in the lobby but not at your desk no longer makes the cut. As always, necessity is the mother of invention. Today, solutions are in place to ensure and enhance your cellular connectivity wherever needed. Increasing capacity and coverage is accomplished by one of the following: amplifying or boosting the cellular signal in a specific area; providing alternate access to the cellular network; or leveraging emerging carrier small cell technology. Additionally, Wi-Fi can be used to enhance the wireless device experience, both voice and data-based services, by offloading the connection from the cellular network. Solution categories include FCC-approved passive signal boosters to active DAS (distributed antenna systems) or Wi-Fi networks. Strong cellular signals are critical to our way of life.
