Cell Signal Strength Inside Metal Enclosures

Category: Cellular Communications, General Communications, Communications

In this White Paper I investigate the effect that a metal enclosure has on cell signal strength. A frequent question that we have is how can we get a cell signal out of a metal transformer enclosure without drilling and running wires out? Can a Cell Revolution along with its antenna be installed inside a metal enclosure and actually work? The answer is sometimes, it depends on several factors that I will cover in this paper. For this white paper some simple experiments were preformed in order to answer these questions and demonstrate the best approach for antenna placement inside a metal enclosure.


This white paper includes:

  • Understanding antennas
  • Enclosures leak RF
  • Communication range
  • Internally generated noise in the enclosure
  • The experiment
