5BARz offers a boost for weak cellular signals

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla | July 9, 2014 We’ve all experienced poor cellular voice and data connections as well as notorious dead spots. An innovative solution from 5Barz eliminates the problem. Dropped calls, slow Internet or even poor reception which sounds like we’re talking to robots from another dimension, these are all realities we experience from time to time no matter who our wireless providers are. As advanced as our cellular systems are today, they’re still pretty susceptible to signal drop off, especially in remote areas where fewer cell sites are available to push signal for voice and data. As their name implies, 5Barz is a company that builds telecom solutions that amplify existing signal coverage by using brilliant engineering to enable improved signals . CEO Daniel Bland says that the company has done the impossible with their latest plug and play cellular device that, when installed, can turn a weak one bar cellular signal, into a completely useful five bar signal. “The potential is huge,” Bland says, “poor signal and connectivity is the main reason 3 per cent of users leave their wireless service providers.” Globally, that number adds up to a $37 billion dollar opportunity. 5Barz claims it has the first carrier grade wireless device to strengthen weak signals to deliver enhanced voice, data and video reception. It will be providing the solution, which they call the 5Barz network extender, initially to telcos in Latin America. The 5Barz network extender will also be tested in India and South Africa, places where remote cellular signal is sparse and where a solution like this can make a huge difference without high cost. The network extender currently works on 2G/3G networks. 5Barz will offer a 4G-enabled variant in 2015 which is compatible with all common frequencies. Their current solution covers 4,000 square feet, feature a patented receive and send antenna in one device and can be managed and updated remotely by the telcos. “Our product represents a major milestone for 5Barz and we are excited to begin field trials,” Bland explains. The company is expanding to 10 countries where it will set up subsidiary companies that will have exclusive distribution and marketing for each area. Aside from creating jobs in these new subsidiary locations, 5Barz wants to roll out their product globally and simultaneously to maintain their lead over the competition.

5Barz International, Inc. (BARZ) Conquers the Wireless Dead Zone

DreamTeamGroup Blog | June 26, 2014

There is nothing more annoying to a cell phone user than ending up in a location where one has a consistently weak signal leading to barely audible conversations and continuously dropped calls. A geography that includes hills, mountains, and valleys or any number of certain physical structures can all significantly impact a cellular phone’s full network coverage. 5Barz International Inc. conquers this wireless dead zone. The company incorporates multiple patented technologies to create a highly engineered, single-piece, plug and play device called 5Barz Network Extender that strengthens weak cellular signals to deliver high quality signals for voice, data and video reception on cell phones and other cellular equipped devices.

One current class of products in the market designed to improve poor cell reception involves what are called repeaters, also called cell phone boosters, which depend on at least a weak cell tower signal to amplify and rebroadcast. Many repeaters have multiple parts, starting with an antenna that you place as close as possible to the strongest cell tower signal, which is typically found near a window or even outdoors or on the roof. The antenna transmits signals over a cable connected to an amplifier, which boosts the signal and retransmits it indoors. However, this lacks portability as one has to deal with an external antenna and an extension of coaxial cable. Repeater kits can be purchased at specialty electronics retailers for prices that range anywhere from $150 to $600.

The other main technology to boost cell phone signals is a class of products referred to as femtocells. Femtocells connect directly into a broadband Internet access port, and so the mobile phone carrier is now requiring the broadband carrier to provide good service. As that is not always the case, there may be degradation of quality. Also, a femtocell can only be used at the address where it is registered. To enforce that restriction, the FCC stipulates that all femtocells must be equipped with GPS receivers, and that they either must be placed close enough to a window to receive GPS signals directly or must be connected to a GPS antenna that can pick up the signals. Many U.S. wireless services offer their own femtocell based network extenders at an initial price plus a monthly subscription fee. As a result, critics complain about having to pay for a service that essentially delivers what the wireless network is supposed to have provided all along.

T-Mobile has a slightly different approach in that phones that support Wi-Fi calling use what is referred to as Unified Mobile Access (UMA) technology to route calls over Wi-Fi hotspots. T-Mobile notes that this helps with calls made through any hotspot that its phones can access, and not just at a single location. Like the femtocell technology based products, this will not work for phones from other carriers.

5Barz International’s Network Extender is the size of a paperback book, doesn’t have the messy cable and antenna of repeaters, doesn’t require handoff to the Internet, and is fully portable. The product has a compact, fully integrated antenna which is used for both outgoing and incoming signals. Such compact antenna configurations could lead to a parasitic feedback which leads to a noisy signal and echo. 5Barz International’s patented smart signal processing technology achieves echo cancellation. The 5Barz International Network Extender supports all radio frequencies and spectrums, and currently supports multiple bands including 2G and 3G. 5Barz is expected to have their product support 4G cellular within the next 6 months.

5Barz International, Inc. has recently announced a partnership with the global supply chain management company, Flextronics, a world-class iconic manufacturer for high volume production, allowing the company to extend their reach and connect with more customers and channels in several regions. As more of our communication and media consumption shifts to mobile networks, people will demand strong cell phone signals to be able to deliver those services. Cisco Systems this week predicted that in 2018 there will be nearly three networked devices per person on Earth and mobile devices will generate more than 60% of Internet traffic. 5Barz International Inc. is well positioned to take advantage of this trend.
