The Challenge

Britishvolt executives were unable to carry out day-to-day business operations within their large corporate house in the North East of England, due to the ongoing delays by Openreach installing a Broadband connection, and because 4G signal within the large property was non-existent. Britishvolt’s CIO got in touch with Boost Pro Systems to find out how we could help.

“Without domestic battery production the UK could see its motor industry migrate abroad. I’ve been in the automotive industry for almost all of my professional career, love cars and get a real kick out of driving. But what we are seeing now is a shifting of the tectonic plates, towards a bright new electrified future. Knowing that I’m transferring my skills to deliver a sustainable future but one that also promises electrifying performance is a real buzz. A successful energy transition is underpinned by a new generation of battery cells.”

The Solution

Following a detailed survey and consultation period the Boost Pro technical team designed a solution suitable for the building. For this particular project we were able to mount a high-gain antenna within the loft of the property, ensuring cable runs were kept to a minimum, whilst still managing to ensure the signal gain was maximised. We placed four coverage units within the property, ensuring the mobbile signal was boosted everywhere.

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 office now receive full Vodafone LTE voice and data coverage

Britishvolt executives can now easily communicate with all stakeholders, including suppliers, partners, head office, and the public.

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

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)
