MANCHESTER, USA: Cellular Specialties Inc. (CSI), a recognized leader in the design and implementation of in-building wireless solutions and digital amplification products, announced the availability of its In-Building Wireless Kit.
It dramatically simplifies the process of ensuring strong, in-building reception for cell phone high-speed data services, PDAs. Starting at under $10,000, CSI’s wireless kit optimizes reception inside 25,000 and 50,000 sq ft buildings and includes professional installation services.
According to IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, vendors shipped a total of 244.8 million units [mobile phones] in the first quarter of 2009. The report also states that: “As the overall market dropped 15.8 percent in 1Q09, converged mobile devices (commonly referred to as smart phones) continue to grow year on year at 4 percent. Growth within this segment was evident in Western Europe, North America, and Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan). Mobile operators have become progressively more open to raising subsidies within this segment as dependence on data revenue has increased as a result of reduced consumer demand for new handsets."
As more businesses rely on mobile and smart phones as an important means to communicate, it becomes imperative that these devices maintain their service connectivity when inside office buildings, warehouses, manufacturing floors as well as hospitals and universities.
Scott Goodrich, CSI’s president of Product Division, underscores the value of his company’s timely offering.
He says: "The increased proliferation of mobile phones, and the reliance on these devices for voice and data services, has led to the public demand for connectivity everywhere — even in difficult-to-reach indoor areas. However, the ability to ensure reliable in-building cell phone reception has always been priced beyond the means of small to mid-sized business owners.
"CSI is addressing this issue with our new in-building wireless kits that package the latest digital technology in a small device and combines it with installation performed by experts — with decades of wireless configuration and installation services. With this new offering, small to mid-sized business owners can now take charge of supporting their employees’ cell phone voice and data needs."
CSI’s In-Building Wireless Kit features Verizon Wireless and AT&T approved products. Its small footprint is designed to be easily installed to provide an immediate boost for weak cell phone signals. Components and features of the kit include:
• Consistent, strong signal solution to optimize data throughput for 3G applications.
• Customizable solution options for challenging environments.
• Optional extended warranty and maintenance contracts.
