About Dakota Hotels
Dakota in Leeds is a luxury hotel boasting of impeccable service and located in the heart of the city centre. Dakota was founded in 2006 and have an additional 5 hotels across the UK. Their Leeds hotel was experiencing complaints from staff and customers for having virtually no mobile signal across different mobile networks in their bar and lower floor dining area. Spoiling the experience of the staying at hotel. Dakota needed to find a solution to stop this negatively impacting their business and to provide a solution to their customers mobile needs.
Dakota Hotels were looking for a multi-network signal booster solution. The coverage needed to improve their lower-ground floor bar and dining area.
We proposed Nextivity's Cel-Fi signal boosters could provide the solution. Cel-Fi is unconditionally network-safe as it prevents interference with mobile operators’ networks and in the UK Cel-Fi products are license-exempt and fully comply with Ofcom’s UK Interface requirements 2102 (IR2102). After conducting a site survey the Cel-Fi SOLO was chosen to provide the solution as they needed to receive the best available donor signal from outside and transport the signal through low loss cable to the network repeaters that then distribute the signal through indoor antennas. One directional antenna was installed, and four Cel-Fi SOLO boosters were installed on the firstfloor riser.
Since the installation of the Cel-Fi SOLOs the hotel's 3G and 4G coverage has significantly improved they now have coverage across all networks. Resolving the lower ground first floor multi-network coverage for their staff and customers.
