A building’s occupants deserve great cellular coverage! The majority of cellular phone calls take place inside, but cell networks are outside. 80% of business users inside complain of poor coverage or dropped calls. A building’s materials, while improving energy efficiency, will block or inhibit cellular service from the outside network. To exacerbate the issue, cellular coverage is increasingly not optional. In fact, cellular coverage can be considered a safety or even regulatory requirement depending on the region. Building owners need a high-quality solution that can serve the middleprise and not take a year to deploy.
Integrators and Carriers have partnered with Cel-Fi to deliver a smart solution designed for middleprise buildings – Cel-Fi QUATRA solutions.
Speed of Installation, higher quality in-building cellular solutions, and cost savings – are some of the reasons building owners, facility managers, and IT professionals are making the smart investment in the Cel-Fi QUATRA solution.
Cel-Fi QUATRA is designed to improve indoor signal coverage without any risk of interference on the mobile network. Cel-Fi QUATRA provides a sophisticated network-safe solution that has been engineered to deliver multiple levels of network protection:
The Cel-Fi WAVE Platform cloud-based portal enables an operator to monitor signal KPI’s, such as channel configurations, RSRP, RSCP, SINR, and systems gains, providing control and optimization guidelines.
Cel-Fi QUATRA is an active DAS hybrid solution for delivering high quality in-building cellar coverage in middleprise venues. It combines the best of active DAS and the Cel-Fi technologies that have been widely adopted by carriers around the world. It operates in off-air mode or can be integrated with carrier small cell equipment and operated in distributed small cell mode, creating a Supercell. Cel-Fi QUATRA can be configured with components, for single or multi-carrier environments.
Cel-Fi QUATRA is comprised of an NU and up to four distributed CUs dynamically networked into a single system. Cel-Fi QUATRA can be installed off-air to provide high-quality inbuilding wireless connectivity covering up to 50,000 sq. ft. Cel-Fi QUATRA can be installed off-air in a commercial environment to reduce dead zones and connectivity issues, expanding network footprint with significantly higher system gain.
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 that extends coverage for venues up to 200,000 sq. ft. A Supercell with multiple Cel-Fi QUATRA coverage units (CUs) 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.
Cel-Fi QUATRA partners with carrier-approved small cell(s) to deliver better RF distribution through CUs, utilizing the full capacity of the small cell(s), minimizing interference significantly, and requiring much less network management. This achieves the major goal of in-building network densification.
Cel-Fi QUATRA is available in 2 versions, with coordinating components. Multiple configurations are available by region and band specification
A Single Carrier MIMO Active DAS Hybrid that can be configured in Off-Air (with MIMO Panel Antenna) or Supercell modes. Cel-Fi QUATRA 1000 solutions are scalable, and can be deployed alongside one another to deliver Dual Carrier coverage.
Cel-Fi QUATRA 2000 is a Dual Carrier Active DAS Hybrid that can be configured for an Off-Air donor antenna. These solutions are scalable, and can be deployed alongside one another to deliver Multi Carrier coverage.
The Cel-Fi WAVE Platform enables device management and maintenance of Cel-Fi QUATRA systems. The Cel-Fi WAVE Platform mobile app facilitates ease of use on site. Alerts and alarms can be used as configured out of the box or they can be customized however the owner or admin chooses.
The Cel-Fi WAVE Platform is a cloud-based remote management platform that allows users/operators to manage multiple Cel-Fi QUATRA systems. Features of the platform include:
Cel-Fi QUATRA Network Unit (NU) is the hub of the system. The scalable design works with one to four Coverage Units to provide up to 50,000 sq. ft. of coverage.
