CellAntenna Corp. Rides High Tide of DAS Market, Looks Forward to Growth

For wireless carriers, the name of the game right now is meeting capacity requirements to support an ever-growing customer base. This may be done in a variety of ways — by building an entirely new cell site, using pre-existing structures, like buildings and rooftops, to implement antenna systems, or by boosting signals of the carrier’s pre-existing antenna systems. CellAntenna assists in this last option. Based in Coral Springs, FL, the company is becoming a major player in the DAS antenna and systems sector. In addition to the U.S., the company has headquarters in the United Kingdom and Poland.

Michael Horvat, an electrical engineer who has been with the company for the past four years, says the ubiquity of wireless devices has created this huge demand for data. “Everyone needs to have their cell phones with them [these days],” says Horvat. “It’s a security blanket, so a lot of people are investing in cellular boosting in order to keep their customers and staffs happy.”

Indeed, the small cell industry is growing at an unprecedented rate; according to a report released by Mobile Experts, the small cell sector is predicted to grow by 270% in 2016. Such a growth in demand, of course, creates a challenge for carriers. CellAntenna works hand-in-hand with the carrier who is interested in improving its signal strength in a particular area. When a carrier does, in fact, decide to boost a signal in this area, CellAntenna is responsible for integrating the antenna system to meet the carriers’ specific demands, something that is integral for maintaining a reliable network.

“If it’s designed wrongly—one, [the signal booster] won’t work; and two, there’s the potential of an incorrect design interfering with other signals, something the FCC does not like,” Horvat says. In addition to wireless carriers, CellAntenna works with local governments and municipalities to deploy DAS technology on public systems. For many states and local governments, including the state of Florida where CellAntenna is located, new building contracts are required to include a DAS system—the “bread and butter” of CellAntenna.

“We go into buildings such as hospitals and high rises, and set up an antenna on top and amplify the cellular system—2G, 3G, 4G—throughout the building,” Horvat says. “At the end of the day, you get a lot of happy people who are able to use their cell phones.” While signal boosting is CellAntenna’s forte, it provides a number of other tower services.

“We dabble in most everything RF right now,” Horvat says. In late 2015, CellAntenna launched a new division of the company—Signal Hunters. This division identifies and helps rectify RF signal interference and disruption. Signal Hunters uses drones to more precisely identify the source of signal interruption, and this technology—drones—is something the company seeks to use in nearly all its ventures, says Horvat. “We’ve been heavily involved with the drone industry the last 2 or 3 years, and we try to incorporate drone-based solutions into our everyday work,” Horvat says. “Drones utilize basic RF technology.”

CellAntenna is also looking to get involved in tower monitoring services, says Horvat. And, like its signal hunting, the company plans on using tethered drones to deliver this service. “[Using the drone], we would be able to create an RF diagram of the propagation of the tower,” Horvat says. “That would allow us to test for bad antennas and things like that.”

And with the continuing evolution of the industry, Horvat believes the company will continue to adapt to provide additional services for carriers. There are no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

“The last 20 years technology has come so far,” says Horvat. “All these changes being made…different techniques will need to be incorporated, so we’re staying ahead of that, and I can’t see slowing down anytime soon.”

Press Release

By Howard Melamed | Tuesday, April 23, 2015

Comprehensive analysis provides insight into the true capabilities of Hobby UAV’s

CellAntenna Corporation today has announced its release of a comprehensive white paper "Understanding the Terrorist Threat of Hobbyist Drones," providing information to government agencies and first responders. The white paper analyzes the capabilities of popular multi-blade drones that can be purchased on the internet or through hobby stores and discusses the various abilities of common drones to be used by terrorists.

Drone landings on the white house lawn, the buzzing of three drones around the Eiffel Tower, and the recent landing of a drone with radioactive material on the Japanese Prime Minister’s office have put UAV’s in the media spotlight focusing safety concerns by the FAA and DHS. The white paper examines the hobbyist drones ability to be used as a weapon delivering a formidable IED or WMD, and its intelligent gathering capability. The threat to aviation safety is considered in relation to the capability of both drone pilots and current technology to carry out a terrorist attack in flight.

“It is important that the discussion of hobbyist drones be one based on fact and not fiction, so that our government including the FAA and DHS can focus the right resources to counter the true threats," stated Howard Melamed, CEO of CellAntenna Corporation. “The white paper provides the right information to make the right decisions,” he added.

CellAntenna Announces CA-BRAVO 7080 - Dual Band Public Safety Portable Emergency Repeater

Press Release

By Howard Melamed | Tuesday, April 07, 2015

CellAntenna Corporation has announced today its latest system for emergency communication deployment of public safety systems in both the 700 and 800 MHz band. The CA-BRAVO 7080 portable dual band public safety battery operated repeater is designed to provide First Responders with a quick deployment solution to solve radio signal problems in buildings, or outdoors.

First Responders often find themselves in a situation where no public safety communication is present due to building and geographical conditions. Although some jurisdictions have laws that require a certain level of public safety signal inside new buildings, older buildings are not obliged to provide it. All too often this leaves first responders in a dangerous predicament when they cannot communicate with command or each other. The CA-BRAVO 7080 was designed to solve this problem.

At the heart of the CA-BRAVO 7080 is a bidirectional repeater providing two-way radio amplification of the public safety signal across both the 700 and 800 MHz public safety bands. Combined with safe news technology Lithium Iron phosphate battery, the system provides more than 12 hours of operation before charging is necessary, meeting NFPA 2013 requirements. Easy to deploy, this CA-BRAVO 7080 has built oscillation control safety features to insure no interference with existing communication. The portable repeater can be used for existing legacy SMR radio as well as the new P-25 digital radios, and the future LTE systems.

“Communication is essential in any emergency situation," stated Howard Melamed, CEO of CellAntenna Corporation. “Having a standby CA-BRAVO 7080 system to be deployed in emergency situations will save lives. Every Fire Department needs them,” he added.

Poor Indoor Public Safety Radio Signal Levels Place First Responders and Public At Risk.

Press Release

By Howard Melamed | Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Cellantenna Corporation Urges Local and State Governments to Pass Minimum Indoor Public Safety Signal Requirement Ordinances for Safety Reasons, Immediately.

June 17, 2014, Plantation Florida: At a presentation today to the Fire Prevention Subcommittee of the Fire Chiefs Association of Broward County, Howard Melamed CEO of CellAntenna Corporation, emphasized the need for adequate radio signal coverage in buildings as many First Responder organizations shift to the new digital P25 communication from existing analog systems. Passing ordinances at the city and county levels to have building owners guarantee an adequate indoor public radio signal level is essential. Proper radio communication inside buildings in emergency situations saves lives.

Public Safety radio signals indoors are problematic throughout the country. Often First Responders enter buildings in emergency situations and cannot use their radios due to signals being blocked by the building structure or due to the location far from the radio transmission towers. In many areas of the country, there are no requirements for building owners to insure public safety radio coverage inside their buildings. Passing ordinances by local and state governments who have jurisdiction in these matters would insure that First Responders have radio communication at all times, keeping both the public and themselves safe.

The National Fire Protection Association, an organization that deals with Fire Safety, already specifies the level in NFPA 72 2013 the latest standards proposed.

" Adequate public safety signal levels in buildings, saves lives " Stated Howard Melamed, " It is urgent that our local and state governments enact ordinances to accept the current NFPA 72 2013 recommendations and pass minimum indoor signal levels for public safety radio signals. "

The Fire Prevention sub-committee of the Fire Chiefs Association of Broward County are Fire Marshals of the Broward municipalities that oversee respective Fire Inspectors and Fire Plan reviewers in Broward County. They report important information gleaned from meetings directly to the Fire Chiefs association.

Howard Melamed, CEO of CellAntenna Corporation, is a renowned expert in radio communication technology and has been speaking on the NFPA 72 2013 standards and how they can be implemented to local Public Safety organizations urging municipalities and counties nationwide to implement the newest requirements.



Without safeguards, cell phone use on planes poses risk

Press Release

By Howard Melamed | Friday, December 20, 2013

Allowing cell phone use on airplanes may expose passengers to unnecessary risk, according to a mobile communications expert.

Howard Melamed, President and CEO of CellAntenna Corp, says cell phones don’t interfere with flight communications equipment, but should be restricted because they can be used remotely by terrorists.

"Erasing the prohibition of cell phone use on airplanes without imposing limitations is risky and unnecessary,” Melamed said. "Mobile phones are the No. 1 method used to detonate an IED, and can be programmed to trigger an explosion without passengers’ knowledge.”

The Federal Aviation Administration in October moved to allow the use of electronic devices in all phases of flight, and the Federal Communications Commission will consider a proposal Thursday to ease restrictions on cellular phone use.

If mobile phone use is allowed, Melamed recommends some restrictions:

1) Allow outgoing calls and SMS text messages, but prevent incoming communications. This can be accomplished by phone service providers or device manufacturers.
2) Install a failsafe mechanism to disable devices if the risk of attack is detected.
3) Prohibit cell phone use in aircraft lavatories to prevent their use as "flying phone booths."

Melamed said Wi-Fi is a safer alternative for communication, and should be made available on all aircraft. A number of online services offer free SMS text and voice capabilities. Because airplanes are so noisy, Melamed said most passengers will likely prefer messaging. In-flight noise levels can reach 80dB or 90 dB -- comparable to a garbage disposal, a motorcycle 25 feet away or the average factory.

"When I recently tested a cellular call on an international flight that allowed mobile phones, I couldn't hear the other party and he couldn't hear me," Melamed said. "Voice calls may prove impractical unless they can find a way to dramatically reduce aircraft noise."



CellAntenna Granted Patent for Signal Delay Technology Used in Jamming Cell Phones and other Digital Based RF Communication

Press Release

By Howard Melamed | Tuesday, October 23, 2013

New Technology prevents voice, SMS and data from being received and leaves the RF signal untouched

CellAntenna Corporation announced today that the United States Patent and Trade Mark office has awarded Patent # 8,543,053 to Howard Melamed CEO of CellAntenna Corporation, for an invention that scrambles packet based wireless communication by using signal delay technology ("SDT").

Different from current forms of jamming that are unlawful in the United States and used around the world, the SDT method does not interfere with radio frequency communication. Instead it affects the packets and their timing relationships essential to digital communication on a wireless carrier – effectively SDT scrambles the message and leaves the Radio Frequency transmission untouched preventing the reception of voice, SMS or DATA communication. SDT can be used to control all wireless packet based communication including cell phone protocols of 2G, 3G, and 4G (LTE / WIMAX).

"The Patent represents a significant achievement of our company,” stated Howard Melamed CEO of CellAntenna and inventor of the SDT. "We are excited with our new smart Signal Delay Technology and our continued research and development of products that control illegal cell phone use."

CellAntenna intends to produce a line of products that use this technology along side its CJAM jamming technology installed and working in several countries around the world, and its Guardian Managed Access Service™ already field deployed. CellAntenna was first to being the CJAM™ wireless jamming system concept, deploying jamming in a distributed antenna system (DAS) to apply low power levels of cell phone jamming that is highly filtered and controlled so that it only interferes with illegal cell phones located inside prisons.
