Simplify Signal Booster Installation with VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Cable Ties

cell signal booster performance in a facility

(This blog post walks you through how to implement a strong cable management strategy to support your signal booster installation and keep your business running smoothly. -Teddi)

For businesses that have multiple operations and hundreds of workers, communication is key, but not all facilities have access to strong cellular signals. In these circumstances, telecommunication companies can install a signal booster that can act as extensions to cellular service. Improper cable management can diminish the performance of a system like this. Here is how you can clean up cables and get the most out of cell signal boosters with VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® cable ties.

Why a signal booster is necessary for businesses

Wireless coverage has expanded greatly over the years as technology and business needs have evolved. Despite the coverage, not all buildings are located within range of a cell tower. Additionally, some buildings were constructed decades ago, with materials that restrict the penetration of wireless connectivity. Businesses can’t just relocate because of poor cellular signals, so booster signals are the most practical solution. These systems capture cell signal and amplify them to provide strong bandwidth within a specific area. This requires long cable runs and patch cables that all need to be carefully installed and maintained.

Here’s how VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® cable ties improve installation & maintenance

Signal boosters are often installed in various locations of a facility to maximize cell signal, acting as an extension of service – like a miniature cell tower. Cables need to run from each booster to an equipment closet and data center. A messy cabinet can cause confusion for technicians, damage to the system and the risk of downtime. To avoid this, VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® cable ties are the smart cable management solution for systems that greatly contribute to the success of a business.

Patch cables are numerous and require attention to detail when they need to be updated and replaced. ONE-WRAP® cable ties significantly improve the process of moves adds and changes because they require no tools that can cause damage to the cables. Add in easy cable identification with BradyGrip™ Print-on Hook Material and you’ve got a clean, complete cable management solution for your data center. Take care of the cables that take care of your business.

See the diagram below on where ONE-WRAP® cable ties can be used on signal booster systems.
