CI BEST award-winner SureCall’s Force5 2.0 signal booster debuted at the company’s InfoComm booth in Orlando this year.
The Force5 2.0 is equipped with SureCall’s proprietary built-in SENTRY remote monitoring and control hardware that provides the integrator with remote access to adjust and optimize booster performance. The five-band, cellular signal booster combines PCS and Cellular dual-bands with LTE and AWS frequencies for all major North American cell carriers. The device is also able to sync with an app for remote access.
Frankie Smith, a SureCall representative who gave CI a tour of the company‘s booth at InfoComm, says the Force5 2.0 increases cellular signal strength for all major carriers simultaneously.
“It’s the first cellphone signal booster that allows remote monitoring built-in — a great solution for hospitals, convention centers, large buildings, anywhere you need an improved signal indoors,” he says.
It covers up to 25,000 square feet in typical conditions and, in some cases, up to 100,000 square feet, according to Smith.
More about the Force5 2.0 from a SureCall press release:
Designed to increase cellular signal inside of commercial buildings, the award-winning Force5 2.0 improves connectivity and is a cost-effective alternative to a DAS system. A complete 5-band solution, the Force5 2.0 boosts voice, text, and 4G LTE data signals for all North American carriers, resulting in fewer dropped and missed calls and improved 4G LTE data performance for more than 100 simultaneous users. With its built-in Sentry Remote Monitoring system, the Force5 2.0 is the first consumer booster that allows integrators or building owners to remotely monitor and control the system through an Android® or iPhone® app, or a web portal allowing integrators to optimize performance, trouble shoot the installation, provide general maintenance and servicing as a long-term contract. Additionally, the Force5 2.0 features automatic gain control, which provides the maximum allowable downlink power resulting in a larger coverage area.
