Cell Phone Signal Booster Project: Engine Parts Manufacture

A Michigan engine-parts manufacturer that produces high-performance parts for racing has two separate buildings, each with an office, warehouse, and manufacturing facilities. Both buildings are constructed of metal, which is very effective at blocking cellular signals and cutting off communication to anyone inside. Powerful Signal designed a solution that included a separate 4G cell signal amplification system for each building. Both buildings had two floors, and contained offices and manuf […]

“Fast, cheap, or right—pick two.”

Before we get started: This article is about large, commercial cell signal amplifier systems; it’s not about weBoost’s excellent consumer kits for homes, or even the one-antenna WilsonPro 70 systems. We’re going to be discussing installations of WilsonPro cellular passive DAS solutions in large buildings, with multiple floors, tens of thousands of square feet of signal coverage, and four or more inside broadcast antennas.

Project: WilsonPro Cell Signal Solution Enables Restaurant Technology for Nevada Hotel Casino (40,000 sq. ft.)

Waiting for an open table at a restaurant ranks among America’s least-favorite pastimes. On busy evenings, the entrances to many restaurants are jam-packed with patrons waiting to hear their names called from the podium. Some restaurants have turned to using electronic “table tracker” systems: They give each party an electronic paddle or disk that will buzz and light up when their table is ready. The patron has to hold onto the pager, and they can’t go more than a hundred feet or so from […]

Project: Offices of a Fortune 500 Company in Iowa (1,250 sq. ft.)

Not all the systems Powerful Signal installs cover large amounts of floor space. Sometimes a business contacts us because they have one specific area of a building that is a cellular "dead zone." Such was the case with a Fortune 500 company that had hundreds of offices throughout the world: One of their offices in Iowa had a section covering 2 floors and 1,250 square feet where cellular reception was completely nil. We designed a small cell phone signal amplification system that covered jus […]

Project: Student center of a large Texas university (61,000 sq. ft.)

Since 2008, a large Texas university has called on Powerful Signal to design and install over ten different cellular amplification systems. It easier and more cost-effective for them to deploy cell signal systems around their campus on their own schedule; this aids their budget process and also serves the needs of the campus IT staff who coordinate system installations. The university's most recent project was a system for their student center, bookstore, bowling alley, game room, and centr […]
