How the 5 band repeater works:
- The outdoor antenna receives the mobile signal (GSM, 3G, 4G) in your area, and sends it down the cable to the Stellahome 5 band repeater.
- The 5 band repeater then amplifies this signal and re-transmits it into the area where you want coverage.
- Mobile phones and devices in that area then communicate with this improved mobile signal.
This repeater amplifies all networks and frequencies.
GSM (900/1800Mhz) + 3G (2100Mhz) + 4G (800/ 1800/2600Mhz).
This will cover you for all options, including 4G into the future.
As you can see, the Stellahome 5 band repeater does the lot. You don’t need to know what networks run on what frequencies. You also don’t need to worry about the future and will your repeater work with the new 4G networks. You are future proofed with this repeater.
This booster kit includes
- 1 StellaHome 800/900/1800/2100/2600 booster
- 1 internal and external antenna
- 1 power supply
- 12m coaxial cable(SD240)
Quick install guide
- We recommend doing a "loose" install first, so that you can test where best to place your cables and antennas.
- Install the outdoor panel antenna in a location where there is good mobile signal. (usually this is your roof).
- Using the supplied 12m cable, run it down inside your house to the Stellahome repeater.
- Attach this cable to the repeater. Then attach the indoor panel antenna to the repeater.
- Plug in the power supply.
A closer look
- 4 mounting holes: if you want to secure your repeater to the wall.
- 4 diagnostic lights: tells you if the repeater has:
- proximity control.
- communication with your phone.
- 6 light signal strength indicator: tells you the strength of your mobile signal outside.
- Connector in: attach the indoor antenna here.
- Connector out: attach the 12m cable here and feed it up to the outdoor antenna.
- 12V Power in
The frequencies explained:
800Mhz is one of the frequencies that 4G uses. This frequency is excellent for propagating about the countryside. Most mobile operators use 4G at 800Mhz in rural locations.
900Mhz is used for the GSM network. GSM is a robust standard used by your phone and the operator’s base station to transmit voice signals. It has been about for a long time which is a testament to how successful it is. All phones, including the older “non-smart” phones can use this standard. 900Mhz is a relatively low frequency that is excellent at propagating through the countryside. It is most likely that this frequency is available outside your house (Can you make calls outside your house?). It also uses much less power then 3G or 4G. ie, your phone battery lasts longer!
1800Mhz is a mid range frequency. Most operators transmit GSM and EDGE data at 1800Mhz in cities. EDGE data is low bandwidth and is only suitable for emails. Many mobile operators use 1800Mhz for 4G also.
2100Mhz is used by all mobile operators for the 3G network. This is available in all cities and offers very fast data speeds. It is also available in many parts of the countryside but you should always check outside your property to see if you can receive this frequency on your phone. Generally, if you can browse the internet on your phone outside your property, it is likely you are on 2100Mhz, 3G.
2600Mhz is used for 4G in cities. This frequency is ideal for offering high speed broadband (even higher than 3G). This frequency is used in cities mainly.
