iDEN (Nextel, Southern LINC, Mike)

iDEN users (Nextel, Southern LINC, Mike) do not use standard cellular/PCS instead using the 800MHz SMR (806-866MHz) and 900MHz SMR (896-940MHz) frequency bands. Mixed mode iDEN phones may also use 1900MHz PCS.

Wireless cell phone signal boosters extend cellular service in poor coverage areas by amplifying both transmit and receive signals. In-building cell phone repeaters take the outside signal and broadcast the improved signal into your home, office, building or warehouse through an inside antenna. These wireless amplifier/repeaters support multiple cell phones, cellular data cards, and other cellular devices simultaneously.

The cell signal booster amplifiers reduce problems with dropped calls and signal fades while improving service range, voice quality and access. The multi-mode amplifiers are designed to offer a cost-effective solution for use in buildings and mobile installations.

800MHz iDEN/SMR/Nextel or 900MHz iDEN/SMR/Nextel  Bi-Directional Amplifiers/Repeaters and Kits

800MHz iDEN and 900MHz iDEN repeaters and kits support either the 806-866MHz iDEN (SMR/Nextel) or 896-940MHz iDEN (SMR/Nextel) band. These kits are not compatible with standard cellular/PCS carriers.

Cellular Repeaters (Wireless)
  • Multi-device simultaneous signal improvement
  • Requires exterior building antenna (typically high gain directional cell antenna)
  • Requires interior in-building wireless antenna - many systems support multiple interior antennas
  • No physical connection to cell phone or cellular data card
  • Available stand alone for custom configuration or in plug-and-play kits
Signal Booster Frequency

Cell phone carriers operate on multiple frequencies depending upon carrier and location. iDEN (Nextel, Southern LINC, Mike) do not use the standard cellular/PCS frequency bands. More information on cellular frequencies and determining what your carrier is using.
