Industrial Signal Boosters: Freqently Asked Questions.
The term "industrial signal booster" encompasses a wide range of devices designed for installation by professional installers or FCC licensees. These devices have been designed specifically to simultaneously serve multiple users over larger areas, such as hospitals, airports, stadiums, office buildings, tunnels, and educational facilities.
Are There Additional Regulatory Requirements on Industrial Signal Boosters under the New Regulations?
The new regulations for industrial signal boosters require that the equipment has proper labelling. Note that warning labels may look different to the sample label below. However, the same information must be included on the label (FCC 13-21, see Paragraphs 115, 123).
What Should I Do If an Industrial Signal Booster Was Installed in My Building Prior to the New Regulations, and I Didn't Receive Consent from the FCC Licensee?
You need to contact the FCC licensee (wireless provider offering service to your area) and obtain written consent. It is important to note that there's no obligation on the part of the FCC licensee to consent to the use of any existing signal booster on its network.
Who Are Qualified Installers?
Under FCC rules, there're no specific installer certification requirements. The FCC believes that members of the wireless industry are in the best position to determine appropriate qualifications for technical personnel, so they leave it up to the wireless industry to develop standards for certification programs, as needed (FCC 13-21, see Paragraph 116). Many products carry the manufacturer's certification.
