Australian telecommunications distributor Powertec Telecommunications has released an active distributed antenna system hybrid known as Cel-Fi QUATRA that is claimed to be able to provide an uniform, high-quality mobile signal in a building that ranges in size from 900 square metres to 46,000 square metres.

A statement from the company said the strength of Cel-Fi was that it was a self-configuring system that would reduce installation times to a few days by eliminating most of the complex routines needed for in-building coverage.

The Cel-Fi QUATRA is not a new product, having been developed by Nextivity, a partner of Powertec, and sold in the US since 2016.

Other claims about Cel-Fi QUATRA is that it guaranteed to be network safe, delivers a cellular signal that is up to 1000x stronger, uses CAT5e cabling and Power over Ethernet, ans has no signal attenuation right to the perimeter of a building.

Powertec product manager Paul Boyce said: "This is an incredible leap forward in choice for the ‘middleprise’ sector, where an expensive DAS solution was previously the only option.

“We anticipate that this solution could offer an 80% cost saving for various sectors, including medical, education, retail, hospitality and more."

The Cel-Fi QUATRA solution includes enhanced 3G and 4G mobile coverage for voice, faster data speeds and prevention of dropped or missed calls.

Remote monitoring and management are also possible through the Cel-Fi WAVE Platform, another Powertec product.

An accredited installer has to deploy the hardware solution, but Powertec said the use of CAT5e cable to connect the system’s components ensured quick deployment, compared to anything else in the market.

“The commercial mid-market has long lacked a truly affordable, enterprise-class indoor coverage solution – until now,” said Boyce. “Cel-Fi QUATRA bridges the gap for any company wanting to eliminate the cost, complexity, and time involved with the installation of full-blown active DAS systems.”
