[Posted 11/10/2013 by Steve Eyres]
Today, most communication in homes and businesses takes place through cell phone technology. While using a cell phone offers a better way to enhance productivity through increased mobility, lost signals can lead to dropped calls that interfere with your daily activities. You can stop dropped calls in your home or business by installing a quality cell phone repeater antenna which will boost the signal strength and expand the coverage for cellular reception in a building.
Causes of Dropped Calls
Many cell phone users view dropped calls as a mysterious event that is annoying at best and devastating at worst. However, there is usually an easily remedied solution for weak or missing cellular signals. According to CTIA, dropped calls can usually be attributed to a lost signal due to structural obstructions, traveling out of the broadcast tower range or by an interruption that occurs between the transfers of signals.
How to Eliminate Lost Signals
Fixing the main causes of lost or weak signals will eliminate the issues that arise from dropped calls. Setting up an in-building wireless system that includes a cell phone repeater antenna is the most effective way to address all of the contributing factors to interrupted cellular service. These antennas are designed to receive a signal from a cell tower and then transmit it throughout your building by increasing its strength with an amplifier.
Selecting and Installing Cell Phone Repeaters
There are several factors that will influence your selection of a cell phone repeater. First, it is best if your antenna is placed outside on a roof or balcony. This provides it with greater access to cellular signals. Second, it is important to consider the use of your repeater. While most are universally compatible, you may need one designed for industrial use if you will be placing it in a larger business such as a stadium or hospital. Finally, be sure to select one that can offer you the right amount of signal strength for the size of your building and the amount of users you expect to receive a signal.
At some point, everybody has experienced the frustration of dropped calls at home or work. However, no one has to continue worrying about lost productivity due to disruptions in their communications. By installing a cell phone repeater antenna in your home or office, you can have in-building wireless access to a strong signal every time you use your mobile device.
