The SureCall Force5 2.0 is the next generation of enterprise cellular signal boosters. The Force 5 2.0 is a powerful 5-band large building system that will boost 2G/3G/4G/LTE Voice and Data on all major North American carriers. It is the next evolution of the popular SureCall Force5 signal booster.
The Force5 2.0 is an affordable commercial grade passive DAS solution suitable for offices, schools, hospitals, warehouses, apartment complexes and more.
The Force5 2.0 offers up to 72 dB of gain and will cover 25,000 sq. ft. in typical conditions and up to 50,000 sq. ft. in ideal conditions (when outdoor signal is strong and the indoor coverage area is wide open, such as in a warehouse). The Force5 2.0 features the maximum allowable downlink power (17 dBm) permitted by the newest FCC regulations. This makes the Force 5 2.0 the highest power consumer booster available.
The Force5 2.0 is also the first commercial signal booster kit to feature built-in Sentry remote monitoring. SureCall’s Sentry system allows integrators, building owners, and/or IT managers to remotely monitor and control the system through an Android or iPhone app, and a desktop web portal. Users can troubleshoot, optimize performance, and provide general maintenance, even while located off-site.
The Force5 2.0 also features automatic gain control which allows maximum downlink power for superior performance even with excessive signal, preventing system shutdown. It is independently reconfigurable for each band. High linearity across all frequency bands allows for maximum data throughput.
The Force 5 2.0 is highly configurable with multiple kitting options for different antennas according to your building requirements.
Outdoor Antenna Options
The Force5 2.0 kit comes with a choice of two outside antennas:
The SC-288W Omni Outdoor Antenna has 4dB gain.
Omni antennas receive and send signals in a 360º radius. They can receive signals from multiple cell towers and are best for boosting signal on many different carriers. They are excellent in most situations where the existing outside signal strength is moderate to strong. If the outside signal is weaker than that, you may need the directional yagi antenna instead. We have a guide to testing your outside signal strength here.
The SC-230W-S Yagi Outdoor Antenna has up to 8dB of gain. It is a directional antenna that can reach cell towers up to 30 miles away. It needs to be set up pointing in the direction of the cell tower, and because it is directional it will only pick up signal in that direction. We recommend it for situations where existing outside signal is weak, and you only want to boost coverage for one carrier (or if more than one carrier has a cell tower in one direction). If you need to boost signal coming from different directions, it is possible to set up more than one yagi antenna. Contact us for more help with this.
Indoor Antenna Options
The Force5 2.0 kit comes with a choice of three indoor antenna options:
The SC-228W Ultra-Thin Dome Antenna is a multi-band omni-directional dome antenna that broadcasts signal in all directions. The Ultra Thin Dome needs to be mounted to the ceiling for best results and you will need to run a cable to the back of the ceiling. The Ultra Thin Dome Antenna has slightly lower performance than the SC-222W Omni Dome Antenna described below.
The SC-222W Omni Dome Antenna is a multi-band omni-directional plastic dome antenna that broadcasts signals in all directions. It has 3 dB gain and is designed for central locations with 360º coverage. Besides the antenna itself, parts include mounting equipment. It needs to be mounted to the ceiling for best results and you will need to run a cable to the back of the ceiling.
The SC-248W Panel Antenna is a directional antenna with up to 10dB gain. Panel antennas allow optimum reception to targeted areas. It can be mounted to either the wall or ceiling. If you're unable to run cables inside the wall or above ceiling tiles, the panel antenna is the simplest option.
Number of Inside Antennas
The SureCall Force5 kit can be ordered in multiple sizes of 1 or 4 inside antennas. If you are using the Force5 to cover a large area (over 10,000 square feet) we recommend using the 4 antenna configuration or contacting us for a custom-configured kit.
The standard kit comes with one inside antenna, one 30’ coax cable, and one 75’ coax cable.
The four-dome antenna kit comes with four inside antennas, a 4-way splitter, one 30’ coax cable, and five 75' coax cables.
