The Marine Coastal Cellular Signal Booster improves cellular reception for ships and vessels that are moored and underway. Stay connected throughout your vessel while sailing in coastal waters, in harbors, at anchor, and while docked. Experience faster 5G/4G data and fewer dropped calls, undelivered texts, and missed email messages.
“Thank you so much for the help getting this system ordered and across the finish line. Powered it on and just about everywhere on the boat we wanted to have signal now has 2 bars of 5G minimum, where it used to be no service. The crew is thankful, and it was cool to see members on phone calls on the mess deck. The system was fairly simple to install and I’m looking forward to seeing how it works in our home port of Astoria. Thank you again for all the help!”
—Electronics Technician Petty Officer 1st Class Shane O’Brien
When having a usable cell phone signal in your ship isn’t a luxury, it’s a critical necessity.
The Marine Coastal Cellular Signal Booster includes an outside marine antenna for sending and receiving cell signal to and from cell towers and six inside antennas for broadcasting amplified cell signal in the compartments in your ship.
The 29.5″ Poynting OMNI-493 is an ultra-wideband, high performance, omnidirectional antenna that covers 4G/LTE and 5G bands with excellent balanced gain across all frequencies. It operates from 617 to 3800 MHz with a gain of 6 to 9 dBi. The OMNI-493 is IP 68-rated for protection against water immersion and dust and is rated for wind conditions up to 100 ᴍᴘʜ (160 ᴋᴘʜ / 80 kts.).
This antenna attaches to a standard 1″ × 14 thread marine mount with an exit hole through which you can run a 1′ TS-195 jumper cable (included) and connect to a 400 coax cable that runs to the booster. The antenna also mounts to poles or posts 1½″ to 2″ in diameter.
The Poynting PUCK-1 is a compact (3.9″ ᴅ × 1.4″ ʜ) omnidirectional dome antenna with six flexible mounting options, including magnetic and adhesive bases. It has 6 dBi of gain on high-band cellular frequencies (1710–3800 MHz) and nominal gain (−1 dBi) on low-band frequencies (698–960 MHz). It should be mounted to a horizontal surface (like a deckhead) in the center of the compartment where you want to improve cellular signal.
The PUCK-1 has 6.5′ of thin RTK031 coax cable, terminating in a 0.35″ SMA-male connector that can be easily fed between decks. From there, it attaches to the longer, thicker 400-type coax cables that run to the cell signal booster.
The Marine Coastal Cellular Signal Booster can be installed by a marine electrical engineer or electro-technical officer (ETO) who has experience running cable in large vessels. Connecting the antennas to the cell signal booster with coax cable is relatively straightforward and does not require any background or training with cellular amplification equipment.
