A New Class of Solution
5BARz has evaluated the causes of poor signal quality, the needs of both operators and subscribers, and the solutions in the market. Femtocells, repeaters, and boosters either don't solve all parts of the problem, or aren't optimal due to cost or other drawbacks. Using expertise from a team of engineers who designed sophisticated base station amplifiers for operators, 5BARz has developed a new class of carrier-grade technology. This is a hybrid of repeaters and boosters, and is intended for automotive, home, and office use. 5BARz has tested these products in the lab, in the real world, and with operators, and also won the Innovation of the Year award at the 2010 CES conference. These products advance the state of the art to provide the following advantages:
Low Power Use
5BARz products only amplify when required. The automotive products use less than 1/2 watt, while the home product uses less than 1 watt. This not only saves energy, but also minimizes interference with other wireless devices and the network itself. In fact, new rules being proposed by the
U.S. Federal Communications Commissionare expected to mandate low power standards such as 5BARz now provides. Simple Setup
5BARz products don't require a technician to run wires, carefully determine proper location, or optimize orientation. No use of home Internet connection is required, and there are no switches or settings.
Received and sent signals need balanced assistance in order for both directions of a communication channel to be improved. 5BARz products are not only smart about adapting amplification levels, but also about balancing amplification for incoming signals from the base station, and return signals from the mobile phone. 8
Signal Stability 5BARz has done extensive design, testing, and re-design to avoid a number of problems experienced by the antenna design of alternatives. For example, booster products can experience oscillations when people, animals, or vehicles move nearby. These oscillations can weaken the booster effect or cause interference with other wireless devices. Many booster products achieve size similar to 5BARz' products by putting antennas close together in the same product package, but don't optimize radio wave interactions between those antennas. This weakens the boosters' effectiveness, and is one reason why other manufacturers compensate by using too much wattage, in turn wasting power and increasing the probability of interfering with other radio frequency devices and the network.
Choosing the Right 5BARz Product
5BARz has one model in production and three in development of three mobile products with a range of features and prices, as well as a home/office product:
Road Warrior The Road Warrior won the 2010 CES Innovation of the Year award for product design and engineering. It improves wireless voice and data signals in the home, office, or vehicle. It works with any wireless operator, needs no installation, and can easily be moved. The Road Warrior features real-time radio frequency
self-adjusting radio frequency levels, and balanced power
for incoming and return signals. It is
