Sprint Corporation is the fourth largest telecommunications company in America. As of January 2017, its database includes a total of 59.5 million clients. Since wireless services became a prerequisite for both personal and professional spaces, the carrier found a solution for any indoor coverage issue. This is how the magic box was created. The device is mobile and can be placed inside one’s home or office to amplify Sprint wireless signal.
Sprint Can Now Guarantee 30,000 Square Feet of Indoor Coverage
The Magic Box from Sprint works in a similar way as a cellular repeater, only at a more advanced level. Its optimal position should be in a window or even outside the house. This way, the device has the best chance to intercept signals from nearby Sprint tower. Afterward, the box is simply broadcasting the signals at an enhanced rate.
Moreover, Magic Box doesn’t require any connection to the broadband. The company claimed that its new tool is strong enough to cover 30,000 square feet indoors. On top of that, it delivers results outdoors as well, but at a lower scale of 300-foot radius. This way, if one neighbor installs the asset, the whole block can enjoy the better indoor coverage.
Magic Box Is Like No Other
John Saw, Sprint CTO, stated that their new product might look like other available products, yet it is actually quite different from them. While carriers have been offering network extenders for years, they can’t work without home broadband.
Moreover, Magic Box is different from repeaters such as WeBoost as well. This is because the Sprint gadget employs a dedicated channel to create a connection to its donor cell. This means that it doesn’t just simply replicate the channel which usually results in a low-quality version of the original. However, it uses clear channels to broadcast sheer signals to one’s home.
