The Challenge

Patheon, by Thermo Fisher Scientific’s facility in Swindon, has struggled with a poor mobile phone signal since construction. The facility had a legacy system improving the company’s corporate network, EE, however they required to upgrade this due to poor performance.

Due to the nature of the facility, and the works carried out in the laboratories, multiple site surveys were required to design a hybrid DAS that would improve the signal in the key areas. The facility is undergoing renovation works which added additional logistical elements to the install. Due to the renovation work, the project has been split into two phases, with phase 2 due for completion in Q3 2021.

The Solution

Following a detailed survey and consultation period the Boost Pro technical team designed a solution suitable for the facility. 

Phase 1 of the install included two LDPA external antennas, three network units and eleven coverage units. Boost Pro are monitoring this system 24/7 remotely via the online platform to ensure optimal performance.

This project leverages our licence-exempt Passive DAS Industrial Signal Booster. This product benefits from:

✓ 3G / 4G / LTE Voice and Data
✓ Multi-Carrier Support with Carrier Switching
✓ Indoor / Outdoor NEMA 4 Rated
✓ Network Safe

The Results

All areas of the facility now receive full EE LTE voice and data coverage

Employees can now easily communicate with all stakeholders, including other offices, suppliers, partners and customers.

The team now benefits from health and safety, productivity and operational advantages of being able to use mobile devices on the move within the facility.

Our mobile repeater products are licence-exempt and fully meets the regulatory requirements in the UK (Ofcom SI 2018/399) and Ireland (ComReg S.I.No.283 of 2018)
