A cell phone repeating system (also known as a cell phone signal booster), is at its heart a device that takes a cell phone signal from one area where the signal is what you wish yours was and amplifies it to your area so you can enjoy better coverage.
Typically a cell phone repeater comes in three parts: an external antenna that takes the original signal, an amplifier that boosts that signal, and finally an internal antenna that sends the signal where you want it to go. All three parts are connected via high quality cable(s).
What kind of capabilities can you expect?
If the signal is weak you can expect to bring it inside your residence and amplify it significantly, but a stronger signal will work better and a stable signal is a must.
If you are in an area where there is no signal at all, or the signal is unstable, even the most powerful cell phone repeaters will not work. As long as there is a signal in an area, you should get your cell phone repeater to work.
Types of Cell Phone Repeaters
There are many different types available on the market which vary by their strengths and various types of applications (indoor, in-vehicle, or machine to machine). Knowing your situation and what you need will allow you to pick the best. Here are two of the most common:
· Home and Office phone repeaters: great for buildings of any type, these use a powerful amplifier and antennas to boost signals over an indoor area. Whether you need to boost in one room only or over hundreds of thousands of square feet using several internal antennae, there is a booster for every market.
· Vehicle phone repeaters: vehicles are on the go and have a choice of two amplifiers:
Cradle cell phone repeaters that combine the amplifier and internal antenna into one pack but can only be used by one person at once.
Broadcast cell phone repeaters boost signals inside the vehicle to all devices inside, allowing for use by multiple users. If you’re going long distance or in a carpool, this one is for you.
