How to Enhance Business Continuity with Cellular Repeaters

Many companies struggle when ensuring business continuity as they transition to remote work models. With the Coronavirus pandemic forcing 2/3s of Americans to work from home, the need for a reliable internet connectivity and strong cell signal has become crucial. Unfortunately, many individuals have encountered various issues in these areas, hindering their ability to work effectively.

According to Gartner, 48% of knowledge workers around the world will work either fully remotely (9%) or in a hybrid arrangement (39%).

In this blog you’ll learn the importance of creating a business continuity plan for remote workers and the importance of utilizing cell service boosters to always ensure business continuity!


How To Amplify a Cell Signal for Remote Work Locations

With the rise of remote work, businesses are relying more heavily on video conferencing to connect with their employees. However, many workers are facing issues with their home network performance, specifically due to weak cell signals. This can lead to dropped calls and subpar audio and video quality, ultimately hampering productivity in remote work locations.

Cellular repeaters (also known as cell boosters, cellular amplifiers, or cell phone signal boosters) are designed to amplify phone signals and solve connectivity issues whether you work on-site or remotely.


How Does Cell Signal Boosters Work?

Cell boosters work by collecting the available signal from the nearest cell tower, amplifying it, and distributing the signal throughout your whole site or home office. To work, cellular repeaters need 3 components:

  • External Donor Antenna

  • Signal Amplifier

  • Coverage Unit


External Donor Antenna

External donor antennas work by capturing the signal from the nearest cell tower.

Signal Amplifier

After the signal is captured from your donor antenna, the signal is transmitted to a signal amplifier to boost the signal and transmit it to an internal coverage unit.

Coverage Unit

The coverage unit distributes the signal on-site to ensure the cellular signal reaches your whole building, office, or home by expanding the coverage area of your cellular network.

Where Can You Install Your Cellular Repeater?

Outside Antenna

Ideally, the antenna is installed as high as possible, like on your roof. You can also use a pole, pipe, or sled to mount the antenna and provide extra height if needed.
