Cellular Specialties Introduces LTE Repeater for Smaller Facilities

MANCHESTER, NH - JULY 17, 2012 — Cellular Specialties, Inc. (CSI), a recognized leader in the design and implementation of in-building wireless products and solutions, today announced the availability of its Model SR385 Repeater, which addresses current and future LTE signal enhancement needs for smaller distributed antenna system (DAS) installations.

“As wireless carriers continue to introduce 4G LTE networks at a record pace, owners of smaller facilities such as retail stores, kiosks and office suites are going to need help ensuring their customers and tenants have access to that improved voice coverage and data rates,” said Scott Goodrich, President of Cellular Specialties, Inc’s Product Division.

LTE offers a marked improvement in both capacity and speed over 3G technologies - LTE throughput speeds of 10 to 40 mpbs far exceed current 3G data speeds.  By 2016, there will be 592 million LTE subscribers worldwide, according to Boston-based Pyramid Research. Today’s user count is 6.4 Million and growing rapidly, and each of the tier-one carriers has LTE rollout plans. 

The compact SR385 Low Power LTE Repeater is ideal for applications up to 50,000 square feet and features sharp filtering to reduce interference from competing signals. This product is the perfect solution for adding 700 MHz LTE signal to an existing indoor system, or for a new system requiring improved LTE coverage and increased data rates.
