Cel-Fi QUATRA is a distributed antenna system (DAS) hybrid solution that combines the strength of passive and active DAS technologies to deliver high-quality mobile signal in buildings of up to 200,000 ft2 / 19,000 m2 in size. Cel-Fi QUATRA delivers a mobile signal that is up to 1000x stronger than analogue, utilising CAT 5e cabling for RF and power over ethernet, with no signal attenuation right to the perimeter of the building.
With different configuration options, quick to install timelines and simplicity in IT maintenance, it has put enterprise-class mobile signal boosting within reach of many businesses at a price that is aligned with their budget.
How does it work?
The Cel-Fi QUATRA solution consists of a donor antenna which is installed on the roof or outdoors where mobile signal is strongest, a network unit (NU) which amplifies and digitises the mobile signal from as little as 1 bar to up to 5 bars and a network of coverage units (CU’s) which are placed around the building to rebroadcast the boosted signal.
Cat5e/6 structured cabling runs between NU’s and CU’s and prevents the loss of signal at the CU’s. By leveraging power over Ethernet (PoE), CU’s can be installed anywhere in the building as they do not need to be near a power outlet. The system connects wirelessly with all phones that operate with 3G / 4G / 5G signal – there is no need for an internet connection or to pair your device with the Cel-Fi unit.
Cel-Fi QUATRA is a scalable solution that utilises one or multiple Network Units, depending on the environment and size of the space, with up to four distributed Coverage Units connected to each Network Unit.
Off Air Mode
Cel-Fi QUATRA can be installed off-air, using either a MIMO panel or omni donor antenna to provide high-quality inbuilding wireless connectivity. Cel-Fi QUATRA can be deployed by installers or IT personnel with Cat5e skills or who have received Cel-Fi specialist training (no RF engineering skills needed).
A Supercell is comprised of a Cel-Fi QUATRA system connected to a small cell. Multiple Cel-Fi QUATRA systems can be connected to a single small cell, or multiple small cells, to form a coordinated Supercell. A Supercell with Cel-Fi QUATRA is more efficient than multiple small cells, and the CUs of a Cel-Fi QUATRA system connected to a Supercell do not interfere with one another.
Differences of gain
Cel-Fi signal booster
Traditional analogue booster
Gains in dB
100dB (or 1,000x more than the most powerful conventional boosters (70dB))
Most boosters: 60dB. The more expensive boosters provide up to 70dB, or 1,000 less gain than Cel-Fi
Up to 50,000 ft2 per system, scalable to 200,000 ft2by combining multiple systems together
Most boosters: 3,000 to 6,500 ft2. The more expensive boosters that require complex indoor antenna installation commonly only provide up to 10,000 ft2.
