Business Needs

After a period of expansion, Landis & Gyr opened a new high spec office in Trident Business Park in Manchester in 2020. The new office covers 18,708 ft² over two floors and was finished to a high specification. Good mobile coverage is key for Landis & Gyr to operate optimally as it affects operations, health and safety, business continuity and staff and client communication. Their energy meters are mobile dependent, and a clear, reliable mobile connection was imperative for employees to perform their duties.

The Solution

Landis & Gyr approached the sales team at Frequency Telecom, who worked closely with the customer to fully understand the business requirements. After reviewing the site plans, Frequency, in collaboration with Boost Pro Systems, conducted a full site survey. This included the measurement of the internal and external mobile signal strengths and an in-depth analysis of the layout of the building.

The site survey confirmed the initial findings which identified the Cel-Fi SOLO mobile signal booster as the best solution. The solution was fully installed in 3 days and can be monitored using the Cel-Fi WAVE app. The customer is delighted with the result which has enabled its employees and the business to work efficiently.
