One of the great challenges of living in such an enormous country has always been keeping in touch. Once a day’s journey to the nearest town, mobile technology now gives us the opportunity to instantly connect with friends, family, and colleagues anywhere in the country. But a mobile network can only be built to cover so far. Many of us can find ourselves out west, behind hill or in the bush where phone signal can’t reach. True to the pioneering spirit that built this nation, Australians don’t give up – we innovate and overcome.

Although the CEL-FI mobile repeater was originally designed to amplify and disburse a mobile signal within a building without causing any interference to the mobile network, it is now widely use in vehicles, caravans and marine craft. The CEL-FI is locked to the carrier and will only amplify a signal in that carriers set frequency range. The CEL-FI system is very different to a standard repeater, as it was designed to provide maximum coverage, be network friendly and can be easily installed by the end user.

It does this in several ways by

  • continuously monitoring power levels of the cell tower it is connected to and constantly adjusting the CEL-FI’s output power to suit.
  • only amplifying and disbursing a particular carrier’s mobile signal, operating within a set frequency band.
  • giving the service provider the ability to shut down the repeater remotely if needed, using a signal from the base station.
  • not interfering with the carrier’s network or other users on the network.
  • having a unique installation process to eliminate feedback into the mobile network.
