Melamed asserts that in order to prevent the loss of lives, state and local law enforcement agencies, especially bomb squad units, must also be legally allowed to use radio frequency jamming equipment as a weapon against terrorism.
Hospitality Technology Magazine, article By Reid A. Paul • Editor-in-Chief
Not surprisingly, hotel—and restaurant—companies have begun to explore options for boosting the signal inside their properties. A number of companies have emerged recently with cell phone antenna boosters designed for business and enterprise use. These boosters are designed to amplify the signal coming from a base station antenna and provide a stronger signal to the cell phone. In addition to many of the major carriers, companies like Spotwave Wireless (spotwavewireless.com), Cell Antenna (cellantenna.com) and others have created systems designed for homes all the way up to 250,000 square foot/40-story buildings.
