Coverage enhancements

Introducing FirstNet® MegaRange™. A new solution designed to improve connectivity, and throughput of data services to our cellular towers – particularly at the edge of signal coverage – using specially designed FirstNet Ready™ modems.

San Antonio police and fire personnel monitor information at the Southwest Texas Fusion Center during the course of her work day. The Fusion Center uses FirstNet for operability and played a big role in the communications plan during the city’s NCAA Final Four even in 2018.

FirstNet MegaRange

FirstNet MegaRange is designed to improve connectivity and throughput of data services to our cellular towers – particularly at the edge of typical signal coverage – using specially designed FirstNet Ready modems.

This solution, also known as High Power User Equipment (HPUE), operates at a higher power class on Band 14 and enables devices to improve uplink data speeds at the edge of the network and provide a more reliable coverage area.

FirstNet MegaRange provides the greatest benefit in areas where data connectivity is unreliable, such as remote regions, rural areas, and tribal nations. It also boosts coverage in metropolitan areas that have challenges with cellular signal penetration through buildings and underground parking structures.

In-building solutions

Large concrete and steel structures often limit indoor cellular coverage. To alleviate this limitation, FirstNet uses Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) in large public venues and buildings across the United States. The DAS network of small antennas enhance wireless service within a designated area or building. With over 6,000 already in place, the FirstNet DAS delivers enhanced connectivity, capacity, and coverage where an unassisted network signal would typically not reach. The LTE DAS will support First Priority® and will provide full access to the FirstNet network. This network “densification” provides added security and safety for citizens and first responders alike.
