Mobile phones have revolutionised the way work is done in every business and they are especially necessary in the civil service government departments. From filling in forms and data collection to scanning QR codes and simply being able to communicate quickly, mobile phones have transformed the speed at which Government agencies can operate. By increasing efficiency, government costs are reduced, along with waiting times for businesses who deal with the civil service, which are both critically important aspects for a progressive civil service.
But courthouses, parliament buildings, city halls and department offices are large, sprawling buildings with thick walls and triple glazed windows, and they often have steel doors for security. These materials, whether old or modern, all block the operators’ mobile signal from entering the building.
Why is it important to ensure mobile signal in Government buildings and how to enable that signal?
Choose a system that can amplify the mobile signal from all operators.
Government buildings are vast and often cover many floors. A variety of people including staff and visitors pass through the building, all trying to get work done as fast as possible. They must be able to make phone calls and have access to high speed data. It is not acceptable to ask visitors to use land lines for phone calls and to check the WIFI password in order to access apps to fill in forms etc. Such antiquated systems lead to long delays processing people and information. The easiest way to provide quality voice calls and high speed internet is to enable everyone to use their mobile phones, working off their own data plan. The Stella Doradus Repeater Solution amplifies the external signal from all operators and sends it inside the building to the desired areas, ensuring high quality mobile signal from all operators is available everywhere.
Ensure stable signal for unlimited numbers of people.
Large numbers of staff and transient visitors pass through the building. A system is required that will not become congested when multiple users use the internet at the same time.
When a Stella Repeater is installed in a building, large numbers of people can use the internet at the same time. The limit is set by the operators control mast, not by the repeater. This limit can be many hundreds of connections at the same time.
Ensure the system allows access to mobile signal for mobile payments and VISA terminals.
Many departments in Government buildings receive payments from the public for immediate services, and the easiest way to accept payments is by using mobile VISA terminals. With payment mobile apps such as Apple and Google pay, people expect to just tap their phone and go. It is essential that good mobile signal is available in the building in order to process these payments quickly and efficiently. The Stella Repeater System amplifies the signal to all cellular devices in the building, from e-parking meters to VISA terminals.
Enable a low management Cyber Secure network for all staff and visitors
Security is a major problem for Government offices and large amounts of money is spent providing secure networks. However, the security on the mobile operators’ cellular network is far more secure than that provided by WIFI networks.
By enabling people to use their own data plan, Government institutions do not have to worry about the public having access to their WIFI network. A Stella Repeater System ensures that 5G, 4G, 3G and voice signal is available to each person, so that they can use their phones in the same way they do at home, working off their own data plan with high speed 5G.
Choose a system that provides maximum reliability.
It is essential that mobile phones operate in all areas at work to ensure staff are safe and secure. In emergency situations it is more important than ever to keep all channels of communication open. For this reason alone it is essential that everyone in the building has access to good mobile signal.
The mobile signal is the most reliable form of connectivity. Unlike with WIFI, if the signal on a local operator's mast goes down, the phone will simply capture the signal from the next available mast, thus ensuring a stable connection at all times for visitors, staff and GMS devices. By amplifying the mobile signal, the Stella Repeater Solution provides the most reliable and cost effective solution to voice and data signal coverage problems.
Building plans can be uploaded to the Stella Online Planning Tool to plan and troubleshoot the repeater installation layout. This helps the installer to provide more accurate quotations as only the required material is purchased, and also saves the installer time when doing the installation.
Post Installation Management
Stella iRepeater Systems can be fully monitored online using Stella’s cloud based, remote management system. The system can be remotely monitored and calibrated, ensuring it is always performing at the optimum level.

Government Success Stories
Can you exclude the signal in certain areas, for example in a prison?
The signal from each antenna covers approximately 3-5 rooms. If signal is not wanted in certain areas, this can be easily achieved by not placing an antenna in that area. The installation can be planned to place antennas in other desired areas, such as the offices.
Can you enable mobile signal in a large complex or building?
The Stella Repeater solution is a modular system that can be scaled to accommodate any sized building over multiple floors and in basements. Antennas can be placed in all areas where signal is needed, including underground car parks. All devices that use the cellular signal will be amplified including mobile phones, e-charging terminals, e-pay stations, VISA payment terminals and cellular routers.
Is the solution cost effective and energy efficient?
With the Stella Repeater system, passive elements such as the internal antennas and spitters are used to distribute the signal throughout the building. This is the most simple, energy efficient and cost effective way to bring mobile signal into a building.
