The Challenge

At this site, the donor signal (external signal) was strong, however due to the materials used in construction, the indoor mobile phone signal on the organisation’s corporate mobile network, EE, was very poor.

As well as being an active fire station, the building also hosts the headquarters for the service. The poor mobile coverage led to a number of operational challenges, including communication with stakeholders, the local authorities, and the community. Health and safety at the facility was also a concern. 

The Solution

Following a detailed survey and consultation period, the Boost Pro technical team designed a passive DAS to improve the corporate network in all key areas in the station and headquarters.

With no operator license required, the installation was completed in just one day – this smart cellular solution delivers the industry’s highest gain, at the lowest cost per square metre.

This project leverages our license-exempt Passive DAS Commercial Signal Repeater. 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

Following a successful deployment, all staff benefit from strong and consistent mobile voice and data coverage in all key areas of the building.

Employees can now easily communicate with all stakeholders, including other fire stations, local authorities, other emergency services, and the community.

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

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