May 08, 2017

SureCall Cell Signal Booster installed in Ontario, Canada.

The Michipicoten Community Centre in Northern Ontario, Canada recently chose Surecall Force5 cell phone sig. boosters as the best solution to provide maximum coverage.

Case Study.

The Michipicoten Community Centre recently chose Surecall Force5 as the best solution to provide maximum coverage and better signal strength throughout the centre, including enhanced LTE capability within the 700 MHz Bell spectrum saving the facility from revisiting the signal issue later on if more bandwidth was required.

Customer Details.

The Michipicoten Community Centre in Wawa town, Northern Ontario, Canada with 3,000 residents has a space of 65,000 square feet. It is a structure with metal sides and metallic roof. Cell phone signals across the facility were hugely disappointing and the Centre needed a solution with 4G LTE capability for the entire structure. It also needed improved HSPA/3G network enhancements in all zones. The building required 24/7 supervision and poor signal strength put the security and safety of visitors and staff at risk due to pockets of dead zones in the building with a general -100 dbm on HSPA+.

Major Concern.

Enhance the overall poor cell phone signal strength in the facility and remove signal dead zones already in the facility with a robust solution to completely spread cellular coverage across the entire Michipicoten Community Centre.

Proposed Solution.

Due to the huge 65,000 square feet size of the centre, a really strong and highly reliable solution was needed to guarantee cellular device signal coverage reached across the facility. After weighing up all the available manufacturer products, Surecall Force5 immediately stood out. Surecall Force 5 cell phone sig booster was seen as the best solution due to the Michipicoten Community Centre’s need for LTE capability solution within the 700MHz Bell spectrum. With installation of Force5, the facility was also ensuring they wouldn't have to revisit the problem a couple of years down the line if extra bandwidth would be necessary.

  • I’m glad more public buildings are putting in cell phone boosters. I know new buildings have to put in public safety boosters for firefighters and similar rescue workers, but cell phone boosters are convenient since nearly everyone uses them. We might know someone who doesn’t have a cell phone, but that is a rarity today.

  • These case studies are really helpful. The SureCall reviews are helpful, but when I think about products like the SureCall booster, I like to see how they work for people. Although I may get a SureCall Fusion4home, it’s reassuring to see that a commercial one works well. My thoughts are that if they work well in a commercial setting, they should work equally well for at home.

  • I haven’t been to Canada in several years, but I remember cellular coverage being inconsistent (and still have terrible flashbacks to the days of “roaming” when I left my network). Good to know more places are installing cellular signal boosters. I don’t travel to Canada anymore, but I’d feel more confident knowing I had a booster in my car.
