What Is a Mobile Signal Booster?

A mobile signal booster amplifies a mobile phone signal sent to and from the phone to the nearby tower. A mobile signal booster is basically a repeater system, which takes the existing mobile phone signal, amplifies that signal and rebroadcasts to a nearby area. Thus helping the user to hear properly on a phone when the signal is less comparatively.

A mobile signal booster has three main elements: outdoor or donor antenna, amplifier and indoor antenna. The donor antenna sends and receives signals from the tower, whereas an indoor antenna distributes the signal to and from a mobile phone. The amplifier, sometimes called a bi-directional amplifier (BDA) or booster, amplifies signals from the tower to the phone and the signals from phone to the tower. The amplifier is connected to the donor and indoor antennae by a coaxial cable.

A mobile signal booster can be of two types: home signal booster and vehicle signal booster. Home signal boosters are designed to be used in a fixed location, at home or office, while vehicle signal boosters are designed for use in a vehicle or car. Selection of signal booster depends on frequency, type of supported network, amplifier and antenna.

Mobile phone signal boosters are available for GSM frequency bands and also 2G, 3G and 4G networks. Select a booster that supports GSM, 2G, 3G and 4G networks covering all frequencies. Also, check whether the signal booster is approved by a regulatory body such as the government of India or any other Government body in your country.
