If you frequently experience poor cellular connectivity — dropped calls or slow download or upload speeds — you may have started looking at options for improving your cell signal in your building. If you have, then you’ve likely come across the term RF repeaters, or radio frequency repeaters.

Let’s take a look at some of the attributes of RF repeaters and how they can help to improve cell signal in areas where signal is weak. Also called a cellular repeater, an RF signal repeater uses a three-part system to capture weak signal, and then amplify, or repeat that signal to strengthen it. The signal is then broadcast to the areas in a building or commercial space where signal is weak.
what are rf repeaters

RF repeaters are used in many different industries like government buildings, schools, stores, and offices to improve in-building cell signal.

RF repeaters are used in many different industries like government buildings, schools, stores, and offices to improve in-building cell signal.

They also work together with nearby distributed antenna systems (DAS) to improve the cellular coverage in an area. DAS are cellular repeater solutions (also referred to as cell signal amplifiers or boosters) work with RF signal repeaters to receive a greater volume of signal from nearby cellular towers, thereby magnifying the signals sent and received.

These repeaters can strengthen weak signal significantly.

Why Do You Need a Cell Phone Repeater?

A number of factors contribute to poor cellular connectivity, including cell tower distance, environmental elements such as trees and mountains, and building materials, including metal, glass, and concrete.

The use of an RF repeater can solve poor connectivity issues caused by these factors. An RF repeater can improve 3G and 4G LTE signal strength between your mobile devices and nearby cell towers. Much like a megaphone, the RF signal repeater boosts the performance of existing cellular signal.

Cellular repeater technology offers an economical solution for businesses and large buildings. Unlike Active DAS systems, which are expensive and take a long time to install — and generally used for very large complexes like airports or campuses — WilsonPro repeater and hybrid DAS solutions can be implemented in as little as a week to month.

These commercial-grade cellular amplifiers boost signal for everyone in a building regardless of cell carrier and improve data speeds and call quality for all devices.
