“The British Chamber of Commerce revealed that 70% of commercial


buildings are blighted by full or partial not-spots in their mobile coverage”


OF RECEPTION


ervices, do so many buildings fail to provide satisfactory levels of coverage? Nextivity explores how less mobile coverage for all smart buildings.


go, the more coverage deteriorates. Lower frequencies have better propagation rates, but do not have the bandwidth of the higher frequencies.


As well as striving to achieve the 2030 sustainability targets set out by the building regulatory bodies, construction companies should also be taking mobile coverage into account because there are government targets for 95% mobile coverage throughout the UK, regardless of location. Not only would this satisfy growing consumer demand, mobile coverage represents a huge opportunity for property developers to increase the total value of their buildings through mobile driven value-added services, as well as maximise occupancy rates.


The only feasible way to provide the bandwidth needed is to ensure appropriate infrastructure is installed to facilitate reliable coverage in the first place. This has historically been challenging because of regulatory constraints, equipment costs, and the lengthy time scales involved. Indeed, many larger buildings, including public sector ones, have been forced to consider deploying contraband systems to overcome mobile coverage problems, which has put them at loggerheads with the operators and the regulators.


However, thanks to changes made by Ofcom concerning the use of such equipment (known as Wireless Telegraphy

(mobile repeater) (Exemption) Regulations 2018), providing ubiquitous mobile coverage is no longer the challenge it once was. Any property developer wanting to overcome the coverage problem, make their property more sought after and deliver a better consumer experience, can do so by purchasing off the shelf equipment that is readily available and affordable.


So long as that equipment satisfies the repeater spec prescribed by Ofcom, signal booster technologies can be rolled out en masse. The Cel-Fi by Nextivity product range is one option that ticks all the regulatory boxes. It is the only product range in the UK that satisfies Ofcom’s mobile repeater licence exemption specification, making it legal to use on all mobile 3G and 4G networks.


Seamless mobile coverage for smart buildings is a win- win situation for all concerned. Consumers can access bandwidth hungry data applications, businesses can access services such as online trading, building automation solutions such as smart metering can be controlled more accurately, property owners can deliver greater value to building occupants and the government is well on the way to reaching its targets for 95% coverage for all.
