DAS / Signal Booster Maintenance & Monitoring Service

DAS / Signal Booster Maintenance & Monitoring Service

Why do you need Signal Booster or DAS maintenance?

DAS stands for Distributed Antenna System. Passive DAS is same as a cell phone signal booster system - a quick and affordable solution that has blanket pre-approval from all Carriers and local authorities. Active DAS is a different type of cellular signal enhancing system that uses Carrier feed and fiber optic cabling. Active DAS is an ideal and effective solution for very large buildings but it is cost prohibitive and takes much longer to get approved and installed. Either way, it is very important to tune-up cell phone signal booster or DAS periodically, atleast once a month. The reason for this are many, including the fact that electronics in any signal amplifier may malfunction causing it to become too hot and/or it may not be working as intended.

In addition, changes in area such as a new building construction can affect optimal initial settings of the booster system. If incoming signals start getting blocked by new construction or change in cell tower location by carrier, the placement or direction of outside antenna(s) may need to be changed to overcome new obstacles in your area. Maintenance service makes sure the cellular enhancing system works perfectly, and consistently.

Simple Strategies to Improve Signal Booster Performance.

If you're in an area where the signal strength for your mobile devices is a little on the low side, a phone booster system is an excellent way to improve your reception. Not only will your voice calls be much clearer, but you will also enjoy faster data transfer rates, more reliable text messaging, and improved GPS.

How Do Signal Boosters Work?

Signal boosters improve reception by receiving a weak signal and adding gain, or power, so it can reach a larger area. If you want the best performance, the signal booster will need to be correctly installed and configured.

Cell phone boosters aren't prone to breaking down, but they will benefit from periodic maintenance and regular check-ups. Small and large issues can be detected and corrected, so you always receive the strongest, most reliable signals, and extend the working life of the booster.

A cell booster will not rectify an issue if it originates from your cellular provider or cell tower. In these instances, your best course of action will be to contact your provider directly. However, such instances are much more rare than local level signal interference problems caused due to building construction materials and surrounding new realestate developments such as new metal and concrete buildings.

Signal Booster Maintenance.

A few simple routines performed every few weeks will help keep your wireless booster operating at peak efficiency and ensure a long working life.

1. Power Cycling.

Technicians refer to turning the mobile booster off and then back on again as power cycling. For a complete power cycle, locate the power switch and change its position to, "off". Few types of hard-wired mobile booster units used in fleet vehicles may not have a switch and will need to have the connection or adapter removed from their vehicle power source battery.

2. Antenna Placement and Maintenance.

Exterior antennas should be placed in out of the way locations free of activity and objects. For best results, there should be no obstructions between an external antenna and the nearest cell phone tower. If outside antenna is being used in warm climates, locate it in a shady area to prevent overheating.

3. Cable Placement.

Cables should be free from damage and pinching. Damage to the cables can not only degrade a signal, but they can also create a safety hazard.

4. Check Signal Booster Connections.

Loose connections will reduce signal strength, so check that all of your connections are snug, tight, and secure. Aim for finger tight connections as over-tightening can damage small, delicate components and reduce the signal booster's performance. Exterior connections such as those between external antenna connector and cable can be complemented with water-proof / weather-proof silicone tape to seal off from leaking water or moisture condensation during moist or bad weather rainstorm or snowstorm.

5. Monitor Operating Temperature.

Cellular amplifiers are engineered to work optimally in a range of temperatures, up to a maximum of approximately 20 degrees over ambient. The booster itself will function efficiently up to a temperature of 150 degrees Fahrenheit. However, if you notice excessive heat coming from cellular amplifier unit, we highly recommend calling technical support.

Has Your Phone Booster Lost Coverage?

There are many reasons why a cell amplifier can lose coverage. The most common of those being an incorrect installation of the device. However, changes in the surrounding environment can also play a part.

For instance, new foliage may have grown to cover exterior antenna path to cell tower during spring and summer, or new construction may be blocking reception from a nearby tower. Other reasons may be more cellular users occupying the area (such as a seasonal influx of tourists), degrading components, not enough antenna separation, and antenna misdirection or direction shifting due to high winds.

Ensure the mobile booster has been installed correctly, connections are firmly in place, and that you have added enough separation between antennas. If everything looks correct, but you are still not receiving a strong signal indoors, then we recommend contacting technical support for your device.

Cellular Booster Monitoring & Maintenance Services.

We're all becoming more reliant on being able to receive a reliable cellular signal, both for work and social life. With so much riding on being able to receive strong signals, the demands for maintenance are on the rise.

SignalBooster.com provides signal booster installation services as well as regular signal booster maintenance service to the devices. We provide cellular boosting equipment to all types of industries such as government services, exhibition halls, hotels, and small business. We're also involved in delivering consumer-level devices to the general public.

The Importance of Cellular Maintenance.

The majority of cellular communications originate from indoors. With the average building coming in at under 90,000 feet, we ask a lot from our wireless systems. SignalBooster.com technicians will always take a pro-active approach with maintenance and be on the lookout for strategies to improve results.

When you receive regular maintenance for your signal boosters, you will realize the following benefits:

  • Maintain control over your security and bandwidth.
  • Seamlessly integrate with your current systems and networks.
  • Provide ease of communication for more concurrent users.
  • Create network access for buildings where wired systems are impractical.
  • Occupants will be able to communicate regardless of where they are in the building.
  • Calls will always make it through to emergency services.

SignalBooster.com provides professional wireless telecommunication improvemennt solutions which are installed by qualified and experienced technicians. Enjoy seamless cellular communications and fast wireless networking with the latest in distributed antenna system (DAS) or signal boosting technology when combined with a comprehensive signal booster maintenance plan.

  • If somebody gets a DAS or signal booster installed, they must need some help getting cell signals. If so, why wouldn’t you go all the way and make sure you’re monitoring it to make sure it’s functioning properly? It’s one of those cases of people being pennywise and pound foolish. What good is your booster if you can’t monitor it?

  • Good to know the difference between passive DAS and active DAS. I’ve been seeing the terms more, but I wasn’t able to put my finger on the difference. They both sound helpful but from what I can tell, I’ll be okay with a regular cell booster. There’s lots to discover here. Thanks for the info.
