Trends in Manufacturing Plant Communications and Cell Phone Reception

84% of Users Experience Problems with Connectivity and Clarity

A recent nationwide survey of US manufacturers by Motorola indicated that poor cellphone reception hampered communications and consequently, plant productivity. In fact 84% of the respondents said they were negatively affected by it. With cellphones being one of the primary ways staff stayed connected with each other, both efficiency and safety were at risk.

Here are some of the main issues surrounding cellphone usage and reception in manufacturing plants:

  • 94% said it was difficult to hear clearly in the noisy manufacturing environment
  • 85% were concerned about coverage during emergencies or outages
  • 84% believe that dead spots or problems with cell phone reception are a continuing challenge
  • 76% said productivity is limited because cellphones are not one-to-many communication
  • 72% believed cell phones are simply not rugged enough for plants

With downtime and safety being major concerns and poor cellphone reception contributing to it in a large way, manufacturers were asked what improvements they would like to see.

  • Close to 50% said that an updated system would improve coverage, clarity and worker safety
  • More than 60% wanted text messaging
  • Over 60% wanted to be able to use a smart phone to connect directly to radio users (the other major form of communications in manufacturing plants)

Distance from cellphone towers, interfering building materials and topography are often the main reason for dead spots, choppy reception, dropped calls and low download speeds. With any of these unlikely to change anytime soon, a high-powered cellphone signal booster might be the most effective solution.
