TechTalk: Is Your Building Killing Your Cell Signal?

In 2016, there will be more than 207 million smartphone users in the United States, and over 2 billion users worldwide. People are obsessed with their phones, to say the least, and they hate experiencing poor call quality, dropped calls, dead spots, and slow download speeds. Robust cell coverage is expected everywhere. Join this month's TechTalk to learn how your building could be killing cell signals and how to solve the problem.


  • Construction materials and designs that block cellular signals, especially in "green" buildings.
  • Systems that solve the problem, including in-building cell repeaters, signal boosters, PCS (Personal Communications Service), and amplifiers.
  • Methods for conducting radio-frequency site surveys and determining the type of equipment needed and its placement.
  • Planning and budgeting guidelines.
