SureCall Force8 Cell Phone Booster Improves 5G Connectivity
Introduced at CES 2019, the SureCall Force8 5G Cell Phone Booster strengthens the signals of the T-Mobile 600 MHz band and the AT&T 2.3 GHz mid-band signals.
The Force8 5G is designed to provide smart device owners with increased connectivity in locations including commercial buildings and rural environments across the U.S.
"Reports predict that 90 percent of buildings will not have cell service for the 5G network due to the inability of the high-frequency RF signals to penetrate structures and material. Because of this, there is a huge need to bring affordable 5G connectivity into commercial buildings," notes Hongtao Zhan, founder and CEO, SureCall.
"SureCall is committed to solving this by architecting solutions that will create a 5G future with reliable coverage. Force8 represents a significant first step toward supporting a sucessful deployment of the 5G network."
T-Mobile and AT&T 5G Signals Receive a Boost
The Fremont, Calif.-based manufacturer explains it developed the Force8 cell-phone signal booster to strengthen and improve non-millimeter wave 5G signals for the T-Mobile 600 MHz band and AT&T 2.3 GHz mid-band signals.
The Force8 also boosts cellular service for all U.S. carriers' 3G and 4G LTE signals, including the AWS-3 and Sprint 800 MHz bands, which are a portion of the radio frequency (RF) spectrum that will be active even after 5G is completely implemented nationally.
Pricing for the Force8 cell-phone booster starts at $6,999, depending on the application and scope of the installation.
