System integrators are an essential part of Nextivity’s ecosystem and are integral to the company delivering exceptional in-building cellular coverage. From high-rises, complexes, and multi-use buildings to multi-family dwellings and large homes, Nextivity’s cellular signal distributed antenna solutions for poor cellular coverage address each use case. Furthermore, Nextivity provides tools to system integrators that help make installations faster, easier, and reduce their cost of doing business.

RF walk tests don’t require prohibitively expensive equipment

Some system integrators think they need a high-end radio frequency (RF) scanner for accurate walk test readings. However, Nextivity offers software and equipment at a fraction of the cost to system integrators for performing these essential tests.For instance, integrators can load the building floor plan into the mobile app for Nextivity’s Cel-Fi WAVE cloud-based management platform. During a walk test, a technician records signal strength readings directly on the floor plan in the app. This is done with a simple tap of a button. The technician then takes the measurements using the Cel-Fi COMPASS RF handheld scanner. COMPASS instantly transmits the measurements via Bluetooth to the app. The app then plots the measurements on the floor plan at the location taken. Later, the system integrator can generate a report of the walk test as a basis for the system design. Similarly, system integrators can prepare post-installation walk test reports to show signal improvement to their clients.
