Almost all of us face the problem of low network coverage in certain areas. It could be your office, your home or some basement or it could be anywhere. It is quite frustrating when you have to make an important call and the network coverage does not let you do that. Good news is here for you.

Ericsson has unveiled a new device that is small enough to be accommodated in your pocket and it solves your problem as it provides enough network coverage inside your home, office or any such place. It can work even in those areas of a building where signals can hardly penetrate like the basement of a building. Ericsson has done a thorough research before they could launch this device. Research and development took them 2 years and 14 patents to finally come up with this device.

Ericsson named this device Radio Dot System or it could be simply called Dot. It is an integrated radio antenna that looks like a smoke detector and weighs around 300 grams. The size and scalability of this device is matchless and this device could provide a complete solution to the operators’ of different mobile networks to provide complete indoor solutions to their customers having problem with low network coverage.

This device can cling on to the wall or ceiling and it will act like an extension of your mobile network’s signals. This will result in the amplification of the voice signals as well as the expansion of the data signals.

It is expected that the device will be available commercially by late 2014.
