Cel-Fi GO is the new smart signal repeater launched by Australia and New Zealand-based, global hardware and communications company, Powertec Telecommunications, to provide a solution for poor cellular coverage for people and businesses.
Powered by Vodafone and Spark networks in New Zealand, the cellular coverage solution leverages artificial intelligence and award-winning intelliboost signal processing to deliver the industry’s best voice and data wireless performance. Cel-Fi GO can be placed indoors and outdoors and is ideal for any location where cellular service is poor.
Managing Director of Powertec Telecommunications, Raymond Smith, stated the solution would largely resolve frustrations with poor wireless coverage areas and call quality.
“Cellular coverage in vehicles, homes and offices is more critical than ever before as the norm becomes to rely on mobile phones as the primary mode of communication,” he said.
“Cel-Fi GO addresses these issues of poor mobile coverage and amplifies signal strength.”
After a successful launch into the Australian market in 2017, the device was enthusiastically snapped up by fleet, 4WD, vehicle, marine, home, office and caravan markets.
“We had an incredible opportunity to work alongside US-based Nextivity for the past couple of years to help bring the Cel-Fi GO to market in Australia and now we’re looking forward to boosting signals in New Zealand,” said Raymond.
Based on the enthusiastic uptake in Australia we would expect that on-the-go New Zealanders would embrace this product to solve their poor mobile coverage problems.
Cel-Fi GO is the first carrier-class cellular coverage solution to feature industry-leading 100dB system gain – more than one hundred powerful than traditional methods – cradle and antenna.
Operated on smart 3G, 4G and 4GX frequency bands, the device is indoor/outdoor IP54 rated and can be used in marine, automotive and fixed, for moving vehicles and building installations to amplify cellular signals using a number of patented algorithms.
“Cel-Fi GO automatically adapts to the moving environment, jumping from tower to tower by not releasing the signal until the incoming tower signal strength is sufficient,” explained Raymond.
Coupled with antennas and the Cel-Fi WAVE smartphone app, Cel-Fi GO is the ideal solution to resolve the toughest coverage challenges.
From this month, Cel-Fi GO is available for New Zealand residents and mobile subscribers of the Vodafone and Spark networks.
