PRODUCTS USED

 

BLACKHAWK PARABOLIC GRID ANTENNA 600-6500MHZ 14-25DBI

THE BUSINESS NEED

Effective communication between departments can literally be the difference between life and death. With phase three of RHH redevelopment coming to completion it was identified that there were connectivity issues between wards that impacted the ability of staff to function effectively.

The decision was made to improve signal at the end of the newly constructed building where the signal was interrupted by the building materials; concrete, steel and tinted glass.

THE BUSINESS BENEFITS

The installation provided enhanced inbuilding coverage of mobile networks. Mobile devices now work in the target coverage areas (TCA). The main lobby and Emergency departments were covered as well as the lift lobbies on 10 floors.

 

THE SOLUTION

Cel-Fi Go repeaters were installed to provide a uniformed power distribution amongst all carriers.

The Blackhawk Parabolic Grid antenna was selected as the external antenna for this project to isolate the best quality signal and overcome the dense “noisy” environment.

The Blackhawk Omni Ceiling antenna provided consistently distributed mobile phone service from the Cel-Fi repeater, with a 360° beam width for complete internal coverage. The antenna is compact with a visually unobtrusive design similar to a smoke alarm.
