What Is Signal Booster Attenuation?

More power is not always better, at least not with signal boosters. What is Attenuation? Based on the cellular environment or the size of the building, the best performance from the signal booster may be achieved by lessening the power the booster is putting-out. This is called attenuation. Adjusting attenuation is like fine-tuning the cell…

Passive DAS vs Active DAS

Today we’re going to give you a better understanding of what the heck people are talking about when they say DAS. You might already know the term DAS but are you familiar with the difference between Active DAS and Passive DAS? When you’re looking into the different ways to improve cell service for office or…

Cell reception is no longer considered a luxury to most cell phone users; it’s a modern-day necessity. While it used to be common for a workplace’s cell reception to be hit-or-miss, now employees and employers almost unilaterally insist on strong reception. Many executives and managers whose work transcends outside of the office use cell phones…

What’s the Difference Between GSM, CDMA, & TDMA?

In the United States, there are two primary types of telecommunications standards for cellular networks: GSM and CDMA. The terms can get a little confusing since they often not only represent the standard but also the transmission method of digital data. In general, GSM and CDMA standards by their authentication practices. GSM is used nearly…

What is dB Gain? Why Does it Matter?

What is dB gain? How can I check my dB signal strength? What is good dB signal?  In electronics, a gain is the increase of power or amplitude of a signal from an input to an output port. This is usually done by adding energy from a power supply to the signal. Gain is…

Technical Signal Booster Stuff You Should Know

What is linearity, VSWR, M2M, where do FCC regulations stand, what is attenuation? Get all this and more in this post.   What is Linearity? Linearity is the behavior of a circuit, particularly a signal booster, in which the output signal strength varies in direct proportion to the input signal strength. A linear designed signal booster amplifier moves…
