The SHIELD SOLO sets a new benchmark for low-power emergency responder communication enhancement systems (ERCES). Combining uncompromising performance with industry-leading ease of installation, speed of deployment, and remote system monitoring and management capabilities, SHIELD SOLO ensures reliable connectivity for emergency personnel and allows building owners to receive their certificates of occupancy (CoO) faster than with any other solution in its class.
Leveraging Nextivity proprietary IntelliBoost technology, SHIELD SOLO brings the industry-leading features and capabilities found in the Nextivity SHIELD EXTEND public safety DAS to the low-power ERCES market. With so much advanced technology packed into a single-box solution, SHIELD SOLO gives business owners the fastest pathway to getting an ERCES installed, receiving Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) approval, attaining their CoO, and opening the doors to their business.
Nextivity proprietary IntelliBoost technology inside SHIELD public safety solutions enables them to automate system parameters — something no other ERCES can do. By automatically calculating and setting system parameters, SHIELD SOLO allows installers to install an ERCES faster and with more confidence it will pass the first AHJ inspection than with other solutions.
The core of the system, SHIELD SOLO is a bi-directional amplifier (BDA) that accepts LMR donor signals and distributes the signals to antennas throughout the building. The system is ideal for buildings in jurisdictions that require code compliant public safety communication solutions, including offices, schools, warehouses, and more.
The SHIELD BBU provides constant direct current and battery charging capabilities for SHIELD SOLO systems, which allows the solution to maintain peak operation for up to 12 during power outages.
SHIELD SOLO is a half-watt ERCES that can be configured as Class A or Class B to support a wide range of jurisdictions. The system combines uncompromising 700/800 MHz LMR coverage with industry-leading ease of installation, speed of deployment, and remote system monitoring and management capabilities. Built with Nextivity proprietary IntelliBoost software, SHIELD SOLO offers advanced automation features that calculate and set system parameters. This not only enables the fastest pathway to get an ERCES installed and approved by the local AHJ, but also streamlines the process for building owners to receive their CoO as quickly as possible.

The Remote Annunciator Panel (RA) provides automatic supervisory signals for malfunctions of SHIELD SOLO solutions. In addition to being NEMA 4 rated and complying with NFPA and IFC fire codes, the RA features PoE architecture for quick installation and alarm configuration. The RA also offers real-time component monitoring through the WAVE Portal.
Model Number: F42-10R-100
The Emergency Power-Off Switch (EPO) instantaneously shuts down a SHIELD SOLO solution from a single point, eliminating the risk of combustion caused by electricity or static. The EPO is designed to prevent inadvertent operation and can be installed in any location designated by the local AHJ. In addition to being NEMA 4 rated and complying with NFPA and IFC fire codes, the EPO features PoE architecture for quick installation and configuration.
Model Number: F42-10E-100
The Active Server Antenna is an active multi-frequency, omnidirectional antenna for emergency communication solutions that require monitoring capabilities at the component level. In addition to being designed for hard cap and false ceilings, the Active Server Antenna features an N-type female connector and rugged IP20 grade electronics. The component is ideal for SHIELD SOLO installations, providing real-time antenna monitoring capabilities through the Nextivity WAVE Portal.
