Vodafone to trial Radio Dot 4G technology
We all know the frustration that comes with loosing mobile coverage when inside, whether it be at home or out and about in shopping centres.
Mobile network operator Vodafone are looking at taking a stand and putting a stop to poor indoor coverage! They are due to start trialling Ericsson's 4G Radio Dot technology - a technology that can improve upon indoor mobile coverage, which is great for businesses, retailers and venues that suffer from poor indoor coverage.
The Radio Dot is a small smoke alarm-sized cell that can be situated around a building to improve mobile signal and boost 4G capacity.
Jorge Fernandes Vodafone's Chief Technology Officer has said, "With 70 per cent of customers using their mobile device mostly indoors, we want to eradicate the frustration of losing a conference call or video streaming session when moving throughout a business park or leaving a music venue."
He also added, "Through our work with the world’s leading equipment and network experts such as Ericsson, we are taking a big step towards achieving that goal through this trial, the first of its kind in the UK."
