The Challenge

Built in 2015, the Avtrade Global Headquarters have struggled with poor mobile phone signal since construction. A combination of poor external mobile signal and the materials used in construction have resulted in very poor indoor mobile coverage.

This is a very common problem within industrial buildings, due to the construction materials used (including steel, concrete, and Low-E glass) as well as often being located in rural areas and therefore far from the closest mobile masts.

This led to a number of operational challenges, including communication with other offices, suppliers, and customers. With little to no mobile coverage, health and safety in the facility was also a concern.

 

The Solution

Following a detailed survey and short consultation period the Boost Pro engineers designed a hybrid DAS to improve the corporate network across both floors of the headquarters building.

Due to the poor external signal strength a high gain LPDA antenna was used in order to maximise the performance of the system.

Our Active DAS Hybrid solution provides uniform, high-quality mobile signal throughout the building, and is scalable to the size needed. This delivers a mobile signal that is up to 1000x stronger, utilizing CAT 5e/6 cabling for RF and Power over Ethernet, with no signal attenuation, right to the perimeter of the building.

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

✓ All 4 networks improved
✓ Up to 1000x stronger signal
✓ 3G / 4G LTE Voice and Data
✓ Installation time – 2 days

The Results

All areas of the headquarters’ offices now receive full 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 offices.

Our products are license-exempt and fully comply with Ofcom’s UK Interface requirement 2102 (IR2102) (UK) and ComReg S.I.No.283 of 2018 (Ireland).
