FCC Certifies Nextivity's Cel-Fi Smart Signal Booster for AT&T

Industry's only carrier-specific booster now formally approved for use by AT&T subscribers

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/14 -- Nextivity Inc. today announced that its Cel-Fi Smart Signal booster for the AT&T network has now been certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Cel-Fi is the only provider-specific booster that complies with the new Part 20 Rules outlined in the Code of Federal Regulations guiding the use of consumer boosters on licensed spectrum.

"The new FCC consumer booster guidelines represent a significant milestone in protecting carriers and their customers," says Werner Sievers, CEO of Nextivity. "With this latest FCC certification in place, AT&T subscribers have peace of mind when using the industry's only plug and play, all-digital, 100% wireless, provider specific smart signal booster."

The new FCC Part 20 Rules, which come into effect on April 30, 2014, address both carrier-specific boosters and wideband boosters. Provider-specific signal boosters like Cel-Fi are designed to work on a specific carrier's network. As such, the FCC permits higher system gains of up to 100dB.

Analog wideband boosters on the other hand, operate on multiple frequencies and carrier networks. To minimize the risk of interference on carrier spectrum, the FCC has capped system gain limits for analog boosters at 70dB (for 700Mhz) and 72dB (for 1.7/2.1Ghz). That means provider-specific boosters such as Cel-Fi offer 1,000 times the gain of analog boosters and a much wider area of coverage (up to 13,000 sq. ft.) within a building.

Touted as insanely simple to install, Cel-Fi smart signal boosters offer the most advanced technology in this market to deliver greater signal coverage, fewer dropped calls, higher call quality and faster data speeds. As a wireless solution, Cel-Fi does not require any cables or antennas, and can be installed in minutes.

Cel-Fi for AT&T is available immediately from Cel-Fi.com and authorized resellers.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Today every business relies on software to drive the innovation necessary for a competitive edge in the Application Economy. This is why collaboration between development and operations, or DevOps, has become IT’s number one priority. Whether you are in Dev or Ops, understanding how to implement a DevOps strategy can deliver faster development cycles, improved software quality, reduced deployment times and overall better experiences for your customers.
In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
