About Cell Phone Signal Boosters
There are a multitude of reasons that you might not receive cell phone signal in your home, office or vehicle. Cell phone signal boosters are systems designed to solve this problem. They work by taking the strongest signal in your area, which is typically outside, and then use an external antenna to tap into that signal. That signal is then transferred via cable to a cell phone signal amplifier, which amplifies the signal and then sends it to an internal antenna, which broadcasts it out to the area where you’re not receiving any signal. In essence, cell phone signal boosting systems are meant to circumvent obstacles which are causing the interference.
While the basic setup of a signal booster system are pretty straightforward, there are many different options for each part of the system. Outdoor antennas range in power, and can be either directional or omni (everywhere). Amplifiers range in amplifying power and indoor antennas can be omni, panel directional, etc.
