FCC Approves First Machine-To-Machine Cell Signal Booster


SureCall, a leading maker of cell phone signal boosters, announced recently that its M2M, or machine-to-machine, booster designed for use throughout many industries that use cellular modems to transmit data, has received FCC certification under the commission’s new regulatory and technical standards. The SureCall M2M is the industry’s first machine-to-machine booster to receive the commission’s approval. SureCall named the booster M2M to show customers that its newest certified device is dedicated to the M2M industry.

“The use of machine-to-machine, or M2M, boosters is rapidly expanding into new industries” said Hongtao Zhan, SureCall’s founder and CEO. “Being the first to receive approval for an M2M booster is certainly a great advantage for our company, but more importantly it’s beneficial for all M2M customers whose machines rely on boosters to consistently communicate data.”

According to Zhan, M2M boosters are being used increasingly in healthcare, finance, oil & gas, renewable energy, defense and military, gaming and casinos, and digital signage.

SureCall’s M2M (model no., SC-SoloI-15) supports 2G and 3G frequencies for all major carriers and delivers a maximum gain of 15dB. It offers a compact design that integrates easily into just about any device enclosure, and its industrial-grade, metal case can withstand the rigors of even the most demanding operating environments, including temperatures ranging from -4˚ to +150˚ Fahrenheit.

The M2M comes in a kit that includes everything needed for a simple and reliable installation: The booster, a USB AC power supply, an RG58 extension cable, an antenna, mounting hardware and the user manual.

Zhan said he expects the M2M to begin shipping as soon as May 1, 2014.
