i-Repeater iR5 - Cloud Controlled Signal Repeater for Voice/SMS, 4G LTE & 3G Data
The StellaDoradus i-repeater – A Cloud Controlled Cellular Repeater Solution For Enterprises
After rigorous hours in development, StellaDoradus has created cutting-edge technology and are proud to release a brand new device called "i Repeater".
So What Is i-Repeater?
i-Repeater is a new type of mobile signal repeater that can be monitored and controlled over the internet. Ideal for commercial large scale deployment such as; hospitals, carparks, basements, supermarkets, and multi-storey buildings.
It is useful for customer, contractor or installers who wish to monitor their installed repeaters from one remote location via the Internet.
If you're a contractor/installer, this device can save you time, in the case of any issues. You can monitor or remote administer installed devices through the Internet remotely.
You can install this repeater with 4 line-amps (only use in countries where line-amps are legal) to enhance mobile signal distribution throughout any building or large installation (as shown on this page).
Unfortunately we cannot sell Line Amps in Ireland, as Line amps are not legal for use in the Republic of Ireland. However, we can add splitters and can help tailor design a complete solution for any size building.
The i-Repeater (and line-amps) can be controlled and monitored from any terminal (laptop, phone, tablet), via an online an Administration GUI.
The i-repeater is 1002 series, which means it is legal and fully compliant to the EU standards.
You can use this device to distribute mobile signal into any building size, and at the same time line-amps are also monitored. See image above for reference.
If you're an installer/contractor, you can enjoy monitoring the health of the repeater system, as well as, remotely administer it from the comfort of your home. Monitor the system from your home PC or smart phone.
The i-Repeater amplifies the following frequency bands; 700Mhz, 800MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz, 2100MHz and 2600Mhz. It comes in two models namely iR5 and iR6.
ModelsThe the models share the same specs except for their supported frequency bands. Please see table below.
The LCD Touch Panel
The i-repeater has a 12cm touch LCD display, that cleary displays the signal strength of the frequency received. You can access "engineering mode" using the touch enabled input device, which should show you a detailed information about the signal amplifier. With the i-repeater, you can also switch on/off or attenuate individual frequency bands.
Access the Admin GUI by logging on to
www.stellacontrol.com. From their, you can; monitor all your device installations, vew the state and health of all your installations, explore specific details of a repeater, switch on/off or attenuate the band and you can view event history.
You can enable email alerts:
If devices are plugged out accidentally by staffs or in case of power outage. You can pinpoint which device has been plugged out, and its location in the building. All devices have internal battery that keeps Internet connection up for several hours.
- Receive alerts for, oscillations, high power, band shutdown, temperature.
Remote Control from any computer or smartphone:
- Switch Off/On or Attenuate, individual bands of any device.
- Switch off power of one or all devices in a building. The devices RF chain is switched off but it is still connected to the Internet.
- Up/Downlink Power
- Up/Downlink Gains
- Up/Downlink AGC
- Up/Downlink Oscillations/feedback
- Temperature on PCB board
- Reboot devices
- All events are logged from initial installation date for each device.
- Percentage usage of each band. Example: 800Mhz :60%, 900Mhz :20%, 1800Mhz :5%, 2100Mhz:15% ,2600Mhz :0%
Security and Cloud Monitoring
The application infrastructure for the StellaDoradus i-Repeater is physically located in AWS data-center in Europe (Ireland). This device benefits from AWS' most stringent security standards for their infrastructure and allows one to satisfy many compliance requirements.
More information on compliance with standards can be found in the AWS Security Whitetepaper.
Powerfull Network Operator Protection
When you install the outdoor antenna too close to the indoor antenna, feedback can occur. It's like putting a microphone up-close to a speaker. The software in StellaDoradus Repeaters detects this feedback and reduces amplifier gain automatically, ensuring this feedback loop cannot occur.
Automatic Gain Control
This feature makes sure that the repeater does not send too much power up to the base station, protecting it from overload. It facilitates power control between the base-station and phone.
Up-link Switch Off
The repeater is in standby mode most of the time and only switches on when a call or data session is initiated. This greatly reduces overall noise.
Base Station Proximity Aware
- Repeater increase power in rural locations where it is needed.
- Repeater reduces power when it is very close to base-stations in cities.
