The SureCall DualForce 72 dB Signal Booster for Voice & 3G is an enterprise caliber cell phone signal booster system that features a 72 dB linear amplifier allowing it to support 100+ voice and data sessions simultaneously. The DualForce is the ideal solution for situations where you need to cover a large number of people and where cellular calls are a important service. The DualForce supports the 2G and 3G networks from all major carriers giving you fewer dropped calls, exceptional voice quality, and fast 3G data speeds.
Many variables impact the total coverage area of a signal booster system. The following are estimates only and may not be accurate in any individual situation.
- If you have an existing strong 5-bar outside signal, you may get up to 25,000 sq ft or more of coverage inside*
- If you have an existing 3 to 4-bar (-80 dB) outside signal, you may get up to 15,000 sq ft of coverage inside*
- If you have an existing 1 to 2-bar (-95 dB) outside signal, you may get up to 4,000 sq ft of coverage inside*
The SureCall DualForce Signal Booster System for Voice, 2G & 3G boosts the standard dual-band frequencies of 800 and 1900 MHz which are widely used in North America. The following carriers are supported:
- AT&T 2G, 3G and 4G HSPA+ (not 4G LTE)
- Verizon 2G and 3G
- Sprint 2G and 3G
- T-Mobile and Cricket 2G
- Virgin Mobile 3G
This system does not support LTE, WiMAX, Nextel/iDEN/MIKE, or AWS networks.
The SureCall DualForce 72 dB Enterprise Signal Booster for Voice & 3G is configurable and can include different inside and outside antennas depending on your needs. All configurations start with the same DualForce 72 dB Dual-Band Enterprise Cellular Repeater/Amplifier and include a 75 ft. LMR400 Ultra Low Loss Coax Cable that is used to connect the outside antenna to the amplifier. The remaining components can be customized to fit your needs.
There are two types of outside antennas available:
- Omni Antenna - Best for strong existing outside signal
- Yagi Antenna - Best for moderate to weak existing outside signal.
The Omni Antenna included in the kit is a SureCall CM100-L High-Gain Omni Outside Antenna with a 7 dB gain. Because it's omnidirectional, it will work for all carriers in every direction that have an existing signal. Omni antennas are generally not as powerful as directional antennas, so you'll generally get less coverage with an omni antenna and we only recommend them for situations where you have a moderate to strong (3-bars or more) existing outside signal.
The Yagi Antenna included in the kit is a SureCall CM230W Yagi Outside Antenna with a 10 dB gain. Directional antennas must be aimed and can cover about 15% of the horizon in one direction. Aiming the directional antenna is fairly easy through trial-and-error, just contact us for details. Because a directional antenna must be aimed, you may only be able to cover one (or a small subset) of carrier(s) with towers in that general direction. The advantage is that because they are aimed, they're much more powerful so you'll get more coverage area with a directional antenna. We recommend directional antennas for all situations where you get a 2 bar or weaker outside signal. Multiple directional antennas can be used if multiple carriers are required, contact us for details.
There are two types of inside antennas available:
- Dome Antenna - Best for single floors
- Panel Antenna - Best for multiple floors or long & narrow spaces
The Dome Antenna included in the kit is a SureCall CM222W omni antenna with a 5 dB gain. It can only be mounted to a ceiling and you must have access to the backside of the ceiling, so it's best for drop ceilings or locations where there is an attic above the ceiling. Dome antennas work best for single floors but can cover multiple floors depending on the floor construction.
The Panel Antenna included in the kit is a SureCall CM248W directional antenna with a 10 dB gain. It can be mounted to a wall, ceiling, or virtually any other surface. The signal comes out of the front of the panel antenna so they must be aimed in the direction where you want the boosted signal.
Number of Inside Antennas
The SureCall DualForce comes in multiple kit sizes with 1, 2, or 4 inside antennas. All inside antennas will be the same type as you selected previously.
- 1 Inside Antenna: The most basic kit, comes with one 30 ft. coax cable and one inside antenna.
- 2 Inside Antennas: This kit comes with a 30 ft. coax cable, a 2-way splitter, two 75 ft. coax cables, and two inside antennas.
- 4 Inside Antennas: This kit comes with one 30 ft. coax cable, a 4-way splitter, four 75 ft. coax cables, and four inside antennas.
