Next-gen mobile signal booster launches in NZ

20 Dec 18

Cel-Fi GO is the new smart signal repeater released by Powertec Telecommunications to boost mobile coverage for people and businesses.

It can provide indoor and outdoor coverage and in any location where cellular service is poor.

Powertec Telecommunications managing director Raymond Smith says the solution can largely resolve frustrations with poor cellphone reception 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. 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.

The cellular coverage solution leverages smart technology and award-winning IntelliBoost signal processing to deliver the industry’s best voice and data wireless performance.

“Based on the enthusiastic uptake in Australia we would expect that 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 100dB system gain – more than one hundred times powerful than traditional methods – cradle and antenna.

Operated on 3G and 4G frequency bands, the device is indoor/outdoor IP rated and can be used in marine, automotive and fixed applications, 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,” explains Smith.

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 to New Zealand residents and mobile subscribers of the Vodafone network.

Founder and CEO, Raymond Smith, said that the driving force for the development of the Powertec is to deliver individuals and businesses with solutions to help stay connected.

“Our wireless communication products and solutions aim to make a difference in people’s lives and ensure that they can communicate and be connected no matter where they may be. The products we offer are intelligent, reliable and durable for optimal connectivity and best possible performance.”

Through a commitment with its partners and manufacturers, Powertec has secured exclusive distributorship in Australia and New Zealand for many complementary products that have attracted over 2,000 resellers and retailers, as well as internationally.
