Provides mobile subscribers across the country with a plug-and-play solution for addressing the challenges of poor indoor cellular coverage
SAN DIEGO – January 14, 2016 – Nextivity Inc. today announced that its award-winning Cel-Fi® PRO Smart Signal Booster® is now available in Canada by Ottawa-based Novotech Technologies. This third-generation technology represents a major leap forward in terms of performance, functionality and intelligence for improving indoor cellular coverage for 3G, 4G and LTE. Cel-Fi PRO is available for use on Rogers, Bell, TELUS, Eastlink, WIND Mobile, and Vidéotron wireless networks, with support for additional Canadian carriers being rolled out later this year. Cel-Fi PRO is being distributed to Canadian carriers, resellers, and consumers through Novotech’s online store.
“Dropped calls and dead zones resulting from poor indoor cellular coverage continue to be a top complaint from mobile subscribers,” says Werner Sievers, CEO of Nextivity. “Nextivity has consistently led the industry with innovations in the field of indoor coverage, and we’re proud to be able to offer our most advanced, carrier-approved, signal booster to Canadian subscribers.”
Cel-Fi PRO leverages Nextivity’s highly-advanced ARES multi-core RISC processor, and is the first smart signal booster to support both LTE and UMTS. This new design can deliver up to 10 times more system gain and twice the bandwidth of previous versions to deliver even stronger signals in the coverage area. With Cel-Fri PRO, users can experience improved voice coverage (up to 13,000 sq. ft.), and four times the data throughput for HSPA+/LTE. As a plug-and-play solution, Cel-Fi PRO is the easiest booster to install as it eliminates the need for antennas, cabling or subscriber configuration; users simply plug it in and will have a strong cellular signal on their mobile phones within minutes.
Product features include:
- Four channels (5, 10, 15 and 20 MHz) to support up to 35 MHz of boosted bandwidth
- Automatic configuration for WCDMA/HSPA+/LTE
- Carrier-specific design for optimal performance
- Easy-to-use graphical user interface that provides a “whole system” view of installation and device status to maximize system performance
- Enhanced echo cancellation for improved signal levels throughout the coverage footprint
- End-to-end signaling delay for improved network stability
- Full support for VoLTE (Voice over LTE)

“With Novotech as our new master distributor for the Canadian market, we anticipate the reach for our third-generation Cel-Fi PRO to increase significantly across the country thanks to their expertise and experience in the mobile space,” said Sievers.
