Cel-Fi QUATRA RED is the first all-in-one, in-building public safety solution
LOS ANGELES – October 23, 2019 – Nextivity Inc. today announced its Cel-Fi QUATRA RED in-building public safety ERRCS solution. Cel-Fi QUATRA RED provides seamless public safety communications for SMB to enterprise size buildings, leveraging the same architecture that made Cel-Fi QUATRA so popular with carriers, integrators, building owners, and public safety officials. While Cel-Fi QUATRA RED will be available in Q1 2020, Nextivity will be providing a sneak peek of the system’s Coverage Unit (CU) at Hall South Booth #2846 at Mobile World Congress Los Angeles.
Cel-Fi QUATRA RED is the third product from Nextivity designed specifically for the public safety market. In 2018, the Cel-Fi GO RED FirstNet Booster was announced in partnership with FirstNet by AT&T for SMB buildings and emergency response situations. Cel-Fi GO RED Portable Partner Solution Kits were then unveiled at APCO this summer, providing support for multiple carriers for mobile and emergency scenarios.
“Designing a new approach to in-building public safety equipment has been a three-year journey for Nextivity. By leveraging our award-winning technology and incorporating feedback from integrators and public safety professionals, we have designed Cel-Fi solutions that are specifically for the public safety market and backed by our 100% performance assurance,” says Werner Sievers, CEO of Nextivity. “Whether we are addressing the requirements mandated by the certificate of occupancy or those of the local public safety authority, our all-new Cel-Fi QUATRA RED delivers a complete solution that exceeds current industry performance levels and is easy to install.”
Cel-Fi QUATRA RED is the first UL2524-listed public safety repeater solution to include both Land Mobile Radio (LMR) and FirstNet in one integrated package. It supports four cellular LTE bands (4, 12, 25,14) and 700 and 800 MHz LMR, with individual donor ports, for ideal performance and coverage. The solution contains everything an integrator or building owner needs to get a Certificate of Occupancy, including a Communications and Battery Backup unit, a Remote Annunciator Panel, and an Emergency Power-Off Switch (EPO) that can be located with the main components or easily placed in a remote location with other fire alarm gear.
In addition to the hardware to facilitate public safety certification, Nextivity also delivers mobile applications and a SOC 2, Type 1 carrier-grade, cloud-based portal to enable easy Cel-Fi QUATRA RED commissioning and optimization, and real-time remote monitoring. Nextivity channel partners can easily deliver Service Agreements as part of the value proposition, along with performance assurances to customers. It also provides partners with new sources of revenue.
For the past 10 years, Nextivity Inc has disrupted the commercial in-building wireless (IBW) cellular space with its innovative, all-digital signal distribution technology, enabling customers across all categories to improve their cellular coverage.
Cel-Fi QUATRA RED will be available in multiple versions to address the deployment needs of each district. Integrators will be able to purchase Cel-Fi QUATRA RED via Nextivity’s master distributors, and end customers through Nextivity’s network of resellers.
