Cel-Fi GO X Indoor cellular coverage for aerospace

March 16th, 2021

Alliance Corporation is proud to be a Value-Added Distributor for Cel-Fi by Nextivity products in North America. This is a repost from a Cel-Fi by Nextivity Case Study.

Patrick, IT Manager for Aerospace Company

Patrick is the IT Manager for one of the world’s leading aerospace companies. He oversees IT operations and computer systems at the company’s Florida-based facility, advising business users on the solutions that will best meet their specific requirements.


Patrick’s company maintains several concrete military bunkers at its Florida facility, which are used to monitor rocket testing and launches. These bunkers are located in close proximity to launch pads. Because of the environment, the bunkers are fortified with eight-foot thick concrete walls, six-inch plated steel doors, concrete floors, and 15-inch thick window panes. While this material protects the people working inside the bunkers in the event of an explosion, it doesn’t bode well for cellular communication. One particular bunker received little to no signal outside, and no signal whatsoever anywhere inside the two-floor, 12,500 sq. ft. space.



The Solution

As Patrick tries to determine his next option, he receives a call back from the operator. One of the sales representatives recalls a Nextivity webinar on the Cel-Fi GO X Smart Signal Booster, a multi-carrier, indoor coverage solution ideal for use in commercial properties. Patrick is skeptical, but is open to a trial. The Nextivity team, comprised of a sales director and a solutions architect, flies to the site to install Cel-Fi GO X.

Patrick initially schedules three days for the deployment, which includes touring the site, mounting the donor and server antennas, and installing Cel-Fi GO X. But within four hours, the installation is complete. When Patrick powers on the solution, the phones inside the bunker light up with text messages and alerts, much to everyone’s surprise and delight. “Wow, I never get messages or service in here,” comments one employee.
