Cellular Solutions for Government & Security

Secure, Stable Cellular Coverage for Government Agencies

Government agencies, state and federal, require advanced security from their network systems while relaying information. Government buildings must overcome similar obstacles facing commercial buildings, such as thick glass windows or concrete/metal structural components. Outdated infrastructure and old equipment is not only a matter of security but one of productivity and efficiency. Berk-Tel’s cellular solutions equip your facility with connectivity across all mobile technologies and devices.

Gain Security & Connectivity

Intelligence and information are constantly at risk, and you don’t need to sacrifice security for great cell coverage. Cell boosters amplify signal without reading, modifying, or broadcasting information. A reliable connection is an asset, and not just a luxury, because voice and data quality can be essential in critical situations. Strong, distributed network signal also prevents overload and interference, both of which can lead to compromised security. Interior cellular enhancement (I.C.E.) ensures your mobile communications take place on a secure network.

Experienced Government Cellular Solutions Provider

Berk-Tel has provided cellular solutions for the US Marines and VA Hospital, among other government agencies in the USA, to improve cell signal and eliminate issues related to poor coverage in sites, facilities, buildings, and vehicles.

Government agencies and departments rely on our cellular solutions to resolve their cell phone signal problems because our team has extensive, national experience completing installations in high-security sites. Government facilities are often faced with connectivity issues because they are so secure; built with thick concrete and steel, or having floors underground, and heavy EM interference. Security doesn’t have to cost your facility its connectivity. We bring cell signal into your facility, amplify it, and strategically distribute antennas for seamless coverage.

The U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) in Annapolis, MD had hundreds of antennas installed in their eight-wing “mega dorm” with nearly 5 miles of hallway space. Four other service academies plan to implement cell service enhancements for student housing specifically. The academy cited reconciliation of security and connectivity as the reason for having the cell service enhancement system installed, after 21.5 million individuals’ personal information was breached when a hacker targeted the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) last summer. The distributed antenna system also contributes to education opportunities. For example, computer science students now have access to separate networks, computers, and servers for use in practice and preparation for competitions.

Employees at government agencies like NASA rely on communication between team members in the same way that police officers, firefighters, or first responders do. Their massive projects have critical deadlines. NASA’s 30,000 square-foot Satellite Services Capabilities Office (SSCO) and James Webb Space Telescope Facility had become known as “black holes” for cellular signal, which left these areas out of touch with the organization. They had a distributed antenna system installed and, after the fact, praised how affordable it was, the fact that there was no downtime required for installation, and how reliable and low-maintenance the system is. Both of their buildings with weak cell signal now have excellent data speeds and call quality, and their staff is left to explore space rather than search for cell signal.

“Signal boosters represent a cost-effective means of improving our nation’s wireless infrastructure. Mobile voice and mobile broadband services are increasingly important to consumers and to our nation’s economy. While nearly the entire U.S. population is served by one or more wireless providers, coverage gaps that exist within and at the edge of service areas can lead to dropped calls, reduced data speeds, or complete loss of service.

Robust signal boosters can bridge these gaps and extend coverage at the fringe of service areas. Signal boosters are particularly useful in rural and difficult-to-serve indoor environments, such as office buildings and hospitals. Signal boosters can also improve public safety communications by enabling the public to connect to 911 in areas where wireless coverage is deficient or where an adequate communications signal is blocked or shielded.”
