New 5G mmWave cell phone signal booster platform will enable 5G amplification for in-building solutions
Los Angeles, California – October 17, 2019 – SureCall, the performance leader in cell signal booster solutions, today announced its booster platform of scalable 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) signal boosters and antenna kitting options. SureCall’s comprehensive booster platform offers the flexibility that carriers need to provide tailored 5G mmWave services across North America while maintaining the same award-winning quality, reliability, and compliance with FCC regulations.
Just like all of SureCall’s other award-winning signal boosters, the 5G mmWave booster platform is supported by industry-leading features such as the exclusively patented Extended Range Technology™ (ERT) as well as amplification for all carriers operating 5G on the 28 GHz mmWave band. In addition, the booster is designed to be fully FCC compliant with current and upcoming 5G regulations, including network protection standards, for seamless integration into cell tower networks.
Solving the Unique Challenges of 5G
A unique obstacle to making 5G mmWave available for the wider public would be the stark contrast in the way current cell signals, including 4G LTE, and 5G mmWave signals, propagate. Today’s cell towers are capable of delivering functional cell signals up to 30-45 miles away while the 5G mmWave cell towers are expected to only cover areas up to a few blocks away.
Even more challenging, the penetration power of 5G mmWave signals is much weaker compared to the current bands being used today. Not only do the 5G mmWave frequencies have shorter range, but they are also much more sensitive to obstacles such as walls, windows, and doors, and are even impeded by leaves on trees or falling rain water.
This means that while existing signal boosters are primarily required only in buildings where materials (i.e. metal, energy efficient building materials, etc) can block the signal, or when the distance to a cell tower is excessive (i.e. rural areas), 5G mmWave signal boosters will become an absolute necessity for virtually every building and room that wishes to provide 5G connectivity for users inside the structure. 5G mmWave indoor antennas like the one below will simply become commonplace in homes, workplaces, and public spaces across America as carriers look for a solution to compensate for the challenges of 5G propagation.
SureCall’s 5G Everywhere Solution
With nearly 20 years of innovation in the signal booster industry under its belt, SureCall anticipated these 5G challenges long ago and recently finished development of a 5G mmWave signal booster platform of products that will make 5G Internet a reality at home or work, or wherever full connectivity is desired.
“Signal boosters have always proven effective at resolving cell signal penetration impediments,” says SureCall Founder and CEO Hongtao Zhan. “Our tailored millimeter wave signal booster solutions will enable 5G consumption at scale with the flexibility to handle a variety of applications and the benefit of almost 20 years of innovation, quality, and reliability in the industry.”
5G mmWave at Scale
SureCall will be working with carriers and select partners on customizing their 5G mmWave signal booster solutions, which overcome the natural 5G signal propagation challenges, to bring the technology into the homes and lives of consumers.
SureCall will be at Mobile World Congress Americas (MWCA 2019) in Los Angeles, October 22-24 to meet with interested parties at booth 2506. For more information or to schedule a meeting with SureCall, e-mail MWCA@surecall.com.
