Nextivity announced that the Cel-Fi GO Smart Signal Booster took top honors in CONNECT’s 30th annual Most Innovative New Product Awards in the Information Communication Technologies category. CONNECT, a premier innovation company accelerator in San Diego that creates and scales great companies in the technology and life sciences sectors, runs the prestigious competition, which begins each year in the spring and culminates in the awards ceremony at the end of the year.
Cel-Fi GO addresses cellular coverage needs in mobile environments for nomadic applications, or for indoor settings where a cellular signal is unable to pass through the building structure. Built on Nextivity’s award-wining Cel-Fi Smart Signal Booster technology, Cel-Fi GO is available in two versions: Cel-Fi GO M for mobile cellular coverage; and the Cel-Fi GO X for indoor/outdoor installation. Both of these are multi-carrier, unconditionally network safe products.
Cel-Fi GO M is the first carrier-class mobile cellular coverage solution to feature industry-leading 65 dB system gain for 3G/4G/LTE networks—the highest in the industry—and boosts the signal for multiple cellular users simultaneously through the entire vehicle, RV, or boat. Cel-Fi GO X delivers industry leading 100 dB system gain as well as the largest coverage footprint for spaces up to 15,000 sq. ft. Cost efficient and easy-to-deploy, Cel-Fi GO can be installed in four simple steps by qualified installers or DIY enthusiasts. The Cel-Fi WAVE desktop or mobile application can be used to monitor and optimize Cel-Fi GO, as well as switch the device between carriers.
“The need for cellular coverage—indoors, outdoors, and on the move—has never been greater, and we are thrilled that CONNECT has recognized this as well,” says Werner Sievers, CEO of Nextivity. “Cel-Fi GO addresses this unmet market need, providing a consistent signal that can withstand the elements, building structures made from impenetrable materials, and on-the go connectivity.”
Winners were selected from the following categories: Cleantech, Sustainability, and Energy; Defense, Aerospace, and Transportation; Information Communication Technologies; Life Science Diagnostics and Research Tools; Life Science Products, Clinical Stage; Medical Devices; Mobile Apps; Robotics and Unmanned Vehicles; Software & Digital Media; and Sport & Active Lifestyle Technologies. Each of these winners was recognized last night, November 30, at the 2017 Most Innovative New Product Awards presentation and dinner.
