We’ve all been in a situation where we’ve lost a cell phone connection when we step into an elevator, drive through a tunnel or just hit a remote, flat area of the country where the coverage isn’t what we expect. Now imagine that happening in an emergency situation.
The ability to overcome those obstacles is one reason why the Nextivity Cel-Fi GO RED FirstNet Booster won the 2019 CI BEST [Best Electronics Systems Technologies] Award for cell signal booster solutions this year.
The Cel-Fi GO RED FirstNet Booster delivers cellular coverage in buildings for emergency communications from police, fire, and medical personnel.
Cel-Fi GO RED with the Cel-Fi antennas is “the best way to ensure coverage in an emergency situation,” according to the Nextivity press release on the product. “Communication is not optional in critical times.”
Here are some of the key features that come with the Cel-Fi GO RED FirstNet Booster:
- Boost FirstNet Bands 12 and 14
- 4G / LTE Voice and Data
- Up to 15,000 ft2 (1,500 m2) of Coverage
- Indoor / Outdoor NEMA 4 Rated
More About the Cel-Fi GO RED
There are a number of Cel-Fi GO RED and antenna configurations based on the size of the building, building materials, and wall arrangements. That includes the Cel-Fi wideband directional antenna, wideband panel antenna, whip antenna and LPDA antenna.
FirstNet is a new network being rolled out for public safety communication devices. This high-speed, nationwide wireless broadband network will have dedicated bands for public safety agencies and first responders. Legacy equipment does not support the FirstNet dedicated band.
Remote communication kits are a standard tool for public safety equipment because not all areas have good cellular coverage. Cel-Fi GO RED can be delivered as the core of a FirstNet portable communication solution.
Buildings of 30,000 square feet and above may require public safety equipment, across 8 million US buildings. Cel-Fi GO RED can work alongside existing equipment that works with legacy devices, so that FirstNet service is available at transition.
Cel-Fi is a member of the Safer Buildings Coalition, which is an independent organization that’s focused on advancing policies, ideas, and technologies that ensure effective in-building communications capabilities for public safety personnel and the people they serve.
