What is a Mobile Phone Repeater?

Mobile Signal Booster - Mobile Repeater UK

A mobile phone repeater or a signal booster is simply a system that takes mobile phone signals from a location where the signal is strong and repeats (amplifies) it to a location where the signal is weak or doesn’t exist. This system has three primary components: an exterior antenna the collects the signal, an amplifier for boosting the signal as well as an interior antenna that broadcasts the signal to the region that requires it. All these parts are connected with a cable of high-quality.

The Capabilities Of A Mobile Phone Signal Booster

A booster can take a weak signal and amplify it substantially, but it needs a stable signal in the location where the outside antenna is placed for it to work. Yes, it can repeat a strong signal, but a weak one can ideally be amplified when combined with a robust amplifier. A booster won’t work in regions that have no signal or have one that’s unstable or cuts out repeatedly. If you put an external antenna in a place that has a stable signal, then a repeater should certainly work in your favour.

Types of Mobile Phone Signal Boosters

There are various types of signal phone boosters that vary in strength and can be configured with varying antenna types to help solve your signal issues. In this read, we are going to cover the most popular mobile boosters.

Home and Office Mobile Phone Boosters

Repeaters for offices, home or any other building use a strong amplifier and at least one antenna to broadcast the signal to a huge indoor area. They vary in power, from entry-level types utilized in single rooms to extremely powerful ones that cover thousands and thousands of sq feet. Some repeaters even utilize several inside antennas in order to provide ideal coverage to the indoors that need better coverage.

Vehicle Phone Repeaters

These come in two types. The first is known as a cradle signal booster which combines the inside antenna and the amplifier into a single device. However, it can only be utilized by one phone at a time

The second type is capable of broadcasting the signal to the interior of the vehicle and can be utilized by multiple data cards and cell phones at the same time. So, this makes it the best choice for carpools, long-distance travelers, families, etc.

As you can see, there are various types of mobile phone signal boosters and the best one usually depends on the needs of either the building or the individual. Of course, your budget may affect which brand you pick, but the reason for use comes first.
