Mobile Signal Boosters For Your Workplace

Mobile signal boosters for your workplace – how do they work and which should you choose?


Find out everything you need to know about boosting your buildings signal before making any decisions.

There’s nothing more frustrating than poor mobile signal and slow Internet when it comes to getting work done quickly and fuss-free. That “missed call” notification telling you that once again an important caller hasn’t been able to reach you? Bleurgh. As more businesses offer flexible working – and all businesses rely on the Internet and mobile signal to function – these kinds of issues become more and more problematic, not just for productivity but for profitability too. The big frames, modern materials and thick walls used to build the average office building often spell trouble for mobile signal, preventing it from penetrating and providing strong signal to anyone inside. That’s why dead zones or “not spots” are so common in most office buildings. Thankfully, these days, there are solutions out there that can completely eradicate weak mobile signal and stop it from ever becoming a problem again. And that means fewer missed calls, better productivity and, ultimately, greater profits. So what are these solutions that ensure consistent, reliable mobile connection in every nook and cranny of your office building? Introducing mobile signal boosters for commercial buildings… Mobile signal boosters are amazing devices that can amplify the signal in pretty much any building, ensuring you always have the strong, reliable connection that you need to make your business work. With a mobile booster on a commercial scale, you can support as many phones as you need, cutting out those missed calls and not-spots (and all that frustration that inevitably builds up as a result). There are a few different configurations that work for different sized buildings and various numbers of users, some of which are powerful enough to supply strong signal in even the most unconventional of structures.

But how exactly do mobile signal boosters work?

The beauty of mobile signal boosters like ours is that they work without any obvious antennae or hazardous cabling getting in the way. Here’s how we install them in six simple steps. Okay, so they’re pretty technical really…

1. Site survey

After an initial site survey, we’ll work out exactly where we need to install the various bits of infrastructure to make your mobile booster work.

2. Donor antenna

Then we’ll usually install a subtle donor antenna on the top of your building, which will transmit and receive the signals you need from the nearest signal tower.

3. Antenna cable run

We’ll run coaxial cables between the donor antenna and the network unit (or “repeater”) that goes inside your building. These cables carry the signal.

4. Network unit

We’ll install your network unit which amplifies and conditions off-air signals in multiple frequency bands as a signal source.

5. Coverage unit cable runs

We’ll use optimised, CAT 6 cable to connect from the network unit to the coverage units that’ll be installed throughout the rest of the building.

6. Coverage units

We’ll install subtle remote units throughout the different areas of your building where better signal is required (i.e. on different floors, in the underground carpark etc.). These units convert and amplify the mobile signal.

So what do you need to think about before choosing your mobile signal booster?

When it comes to working out what booster you need for your building, you should work out the square metre size of the area you need to cover – you may not need cover everywhere so we can help you work this out.

Mobile signal is measured in decibel (dB) and boosters work to add to the dB of a signal, to increase its coverage in your building. Needless to say, the higher the dB gain, the wider the coverage will be.

Ofcom regulations put a limit on how much gain a single wireless booster can provide, depending on the size of the area you’re looking to cover.

The maximum limits aim to prevent potential oscillation issues with neighbouring signal towers, and avoid the ensuing negative impacts that other mobile consumers in adjacent frequency bands could experience as a result.

At Signal Solutions, we calibrate all our mobile signal boosters to reach the maximum legal gain at each level, always abiding by regulations.

In other words, our signal boosting solutions are 100% legal – unlike the majority of those you’ll see offered on the market. 

We use Nextivity Cel-Fi technology to make it all work, which is produced by the only licence-exempt and legal-to-use manufacturer for the UK.
  • They’re 100% legal to use
  • They’re unconditionally network safe
  • They’re accepted by UK regulators
  • They provide high quality signal in areas where coverage is poor or non-existent
  • They’re compatible with every mobile network

And we’re able to install our mobile repeaters in any sort of building, from hospitals and hotels to office blocks and supermarkets.
