Fremont, Calif. — More cellular-signal boosters are coming to market with certification that they meet the new standards required by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to prevent cellular-network disruption.
SureCall, formerly Cellphone-Mate, said the FCC certified three signals boosters for the home and office under the new regulatory and technical standards. The three models are the FlexPro, which boosts the 2G and 3G signals for all major U.S. carriers, and two TriFlex 2G/3G/4G carrier-specific boosters. They ship in April at prices that weren’t announced.
The company previously announced certification of a Flex2Go in-vehicle booster, which boosts the 2G and 3G signals of all major carriers and retails for a suggested of $329.
Several other SureCall models are in the certification process, and the company said it expects them to be certified by April 30, when all boosters must comply with the new rules.
FlexPro boosts the 2G and 3G signals of all major U.S. carriers by up to 65dB. It provides indoor coverage up to 6,000 square feet.
The TriFlex V and TriFlex A models boost the 2G and 3G signals of all carriers, but the TriFlex V also boosts the 4G signals of Verizon, and the TriFlex A boosts the 4G signals of AT&T. A third TriFlex model, the TriFlex T, will be approved soon to boosts the 2G and 3G signals of all major carriers and boost T-Mobile’s 4G signals. The TriFlex models boost 4G LTE gain by up to 72dB, and they provide coverage in areas up to 6,000 square feet.
All of the boosters come with kits designed for specific applications or environments and include the booster, antennas, cabling and other accessories, SureCall said.
Last week, Wilson announced what it said were first industry’s two in-car 4G cellular-signal boosters certified to meet the FCC’s new standards.
