Indoor cellular coverage for ATMs

Cel-Fi GO brings Indoor Cellular Coverage for ATMs

Summary

Challenge
• Bank has ATM’s across multiple locations
• New Bank Apps rely on the customer to have cellular connectivity cellular connectivity
• Cellular signal was poor at different locations

Solution
• Cel-Fi GO unit was placed inside the ATM, along with server antenna; while the donor was run from outside.

Results
• The carrier-grade cellular coverage solution not only helped the ATM, but offer coverage footprints in the building for customers in the surrounding area.
• In areas that ATM’s suffered from suspect coverage, the Cel-Fi GO became the standard solution.

The Challenge

Banks need cellular service at ATM’s

National rollout of new ATM’s that relied on cellular connectivity, suffered from poor or inconsistent signal quality that disrupted operations in some locations. As banking needs change, the location of banking ATM’s have only changed with it. At one point these great machines were only used during off hours in front of the bank. As time evolved, these great machines began to pop up everywhere. With that direction, the need for remote location communication and management. Naturally cellular became part of the solution sets as these machines advanced into their modern-day form.These ATMs can be deep inside a building or environment with poor signal. These systems rely on 3G/4G/LTE to connect wirelessly to the bank’s central operations.

The Solution

Carriers turn to Cel-Fi for in-building cellular

The IT Director contacts the Carrier, who recommends trying the Cel-Fi products. Cel-Fi GO was used in the initial trial, deep inside a shopping mall location; in the basement level. The unit was placed inside the ATM, along with server antenna; while the donor was run from outside. Cel-Fi GO includes the Cel-Fi WAVE application that allows for Antenna Pointing and Optimization, to enable a quick 1-person installation.

The Results

Cel-Fi provides cellular service in tough places

The carrier-grade cellular coverage solution not only helped the ATM, but offer coverage footprints in the building for customers in the surrounding area. Cel-Fi GO provides coverage for up to 15,000 sq. ft.. In some cases, ruggedized (NEMA 4 rated) systems were installed for use inside or outside a building — a significant plus when optimizing donor signals in a given area. In areas that ATM’s suffered from suspect coverage, the Cel-Fi GO became the standard solution.

  • Multi-user for mobile & stationary coverage
  • Up to 100dB max system gain
  • Indoor/Outdoor NEMA 4 rated
