Mobile Signal Boosters – What You Need to Know

Communication is one of the basic needs of humankind. Now communication is a necessity like a shelter, clothes, and food. Mobile phones gave great convenience to people to stay connected with their friends and family from anywhere in the world. But, it is a very unfortunate truth that mobile signals in many places are not reliable and networks are patchy. That makes it difficult, sometimes impossible to make and receive calls without interruption. And the cellular service providers are least concerned to solve the signal issues. That’s why Telecom Regulatory authorities have allowed people to use certain types of mobile signal boosters without the need for a license.

Mobile phone signal boosters amplify signals to help the users enjoy uninterrupted communication and mobile internet accessibility. The mobile signal booster’s external antenna receives the poor signal from outside. Then it sends that signal to the amplifier that enhances it to make it complete 5 bar signal strength. Then the amplifier sends the boosted signal to the internal antenna. The internal antenna broadcasts the full-strength signal inside the building.

Static Indoor Mobile Signal Boosters

The static indoor mobile signal boosters also known as mobile phone signal repeaters are the first of them. These signal boosters are for indoor use. They are designed to improve coverage inside homes, offices, restaurants, hotels, hostels, malls, farms, and other buildings. These boosters can’t be used in motor vehicles, ships, boats, or any other moving vehicles.

The static indoor mobile signal boosters have three components i.e., an external antenna to receive the existing weak signal from the nearest cellular tower. An internal antenna that broadcasts the boosted signal inside the house or building. And an amplifier boosts the signal strength and sends it to the internal antenna for broadcasting it inside the building.

The external antenna is usually installed outside the house at a place (usually on the roof) where it can receive the signal from the nearest cellular mast. An external antenna connects to the signal amplifier unit. The external antenna receives the outside weak signal and sends it to the amplifier for boosting.

The signal amplifier can be installed both outsides and inside the house.

The internal antenna is installed inside the house or property which needs boosted signal. The internal antenna is connected to the output terminal of the signal amplifier. The amplifier after boosting the signal strength sends the signals to this antenna for broadcasting into the property so that the users can enjoy full-strength signals inside the house.
