[eBrief] Outside In: Cost-Effectively Improving Indoor Cell Coverage
It is hard to imagine today but advanced mobile devices have not always been commonplace. People of all ages and in all professions rely on their smartphones and tablets for business and personal applications. As more people use mobile devices in all aspects of their lives, so use inside buildings has increased significantly. Studies have shown that 70 percent or more of mobile data use takes place inside buildings.
Unfortunately, the RF signals that connect to our smartphones and tablets have problems penetrating most modern buildings. RF signals are blocked by most metals, reflected by energy efficient windows and are dispersed by water. An effective and cost effective solution is to use a signal booster to provide coverage inside a building.
This eBrief discusses the benefits of signal boosters, how they are installed and shows a range of case studies.
