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.
There are many suppliers available in India such as Mobile Boosters India, Ava Systems and Ultramind Technologies India, etc. Depending on the brand and type ofMobile phone signal boosters, the average price of a signal booster falls between ₹ 13,000 and ₹ 22,000 for 3G support and around ₹ 30,000 for 4G support.
Most Arduino-based projects use LCDs to show data, but this project instead uses webpage so that more details can be displayed in a graphical form and accessed from anywhere through the Internet. The project takes variable analogue inputs from Arduino and displays results in graphical form on a webpage that supports HTML5. The project presented […]
LabVIEW, or Laboratory Virtual Instrument Engineering Workbench, is a system design platform and development environment for graphical language programming. It is a visual programming language from National Instruments (NI). LabVIEW programs or virtual instruments (VIs) have front panels and block diagrams. The front panel is the user interface (UI), and the block diagram contains the […]
In this project, we will be connecting and controlling our ES32 Wi-Fi based module from our mobile phone’s Google Assistant Application. The charisma here is that your google assistant will take voice commands in Hindi and perform actions on ESP32. It will then perform actions based on our voice commands. This project is amazing and […]
Electronics design engineers require a number of software to create and verify their designs digitally, before moving to production. KiCad brings all these tools together under one platform, making their tasks simpler. This free electronic design automation (EDA) software suite mainly comprises a schematic creation and capture suite, and a PCB layout tool. It enables […]
There are various applications where the developers need to design a highly complex embedded system. In complex applications requiring sophisticated algorithms, frequently one team is focused on developing the time-critical control code while another is working on the code for housekeeping, diagnostics and communication functions. In this type of scenario, a microcontroller with an extra […]
