1.The frequencies of the 4G network
The abbreviation 4G stands for "4th generation," after 2G and 3G. LTE is also used for "Long Term Evolution" to refer to 4G. Finally, with the most recent improvements, LTE Advanced is used to refer to 4G, which now offers advanced features, in terms of speed, data rates, and thus greater comfort in mobile telephony.
Usually the main le frequency bands of the 4G network are: 800 MHz (band 20), 1800 MHz (band 3), 2600 MHz (band 7).
On the 4G modem packaging and in the technical specifications we will undoubtedly find at least one of these frequencies, if not all of them.
A GSM repeater that works on at least one of these frequencies may be chosen accordingly.
2.The GSM Call and 4G repeaters
3.For multi-story houses
When choosing a GSM repeater to improve 4G signal reception on your phone and your 4G modem, you need to consider the indoor square footage to be covered and the number of floors.
If the indoor environment is large and organized on several levels, it is necessary to equip the GSM repeater kit with multiple indoor antennas. The basic repeater kit, in fact, includes an indoor antenna and a single antenna in fact can cover only one floor and a maximum theoretical square footage of 300sqm.
For example, if the building is on two levels, you can opt for an extension set 2 indoor antennas, for a building on 3 levels the extension set 3 indoor antennas applies, and so on. If the project is complex, please send us a message, so we will gladly help you locate the right products and accessories.
4.Is the signal also poor outside?
If the signal is also poor outside the building, you will need to equip your kit with a Yagi, Super Yagi or parabolic type outdoor antenna. Choosing the right outdoor antenna is very important to ensure a good overall result.
NOTE: The parabolic antenna is only compatible with 900 and 1800 MHz, while the other antennas are compatible with all useful frequencies.
If even outdoors surfing the Internet and making phone calls is problematic, then you will most likely need one of these more powerful antennas. Write to us and we can recommend the right antenna.
The kit will work as follows: an outdoor antenna that receives the signal and transmits it via coaxial cable to the GSM calls and 4G signal repeater. The latter will regenerate (re-amplify) the received signal and then transmit it internally through one or more indoor antennas. The outdoor antenna is usually mounted as high as possible in the direction of the radio base station.
