About QUATRA 1000

QUATRA 1000 installation diagram

Stop dropped calls, dead zones, poor voice quality, and spotty cellular coverage in offices and commercial buildings. CEL-FI QUATRA 1000 is an affordable, all-digital active DAS hybrid solution that solves cellular coverage problems by providing uniform, high-quality cellular signal throughout any building. This industry-leading system is also carrier approved and guaranteed network safe.

The system utilizes category cabling for RF and Power over Ethernet, with no signal attenuation right to the perimeter of the building. In addition to being the most powerful solution on the market, QUATRA 1000 is scalable, cost-effective and designed to be installed within days (compared to months typical of other solutions). QUATRA 1000 also delivers a coverage footprint that is three times larger than the coverage footprints provided by analog boosters and older passive DAS (distributed antenna systems).

QUATRA 1000 Components

QUATRA 1000 Network Unit (NU)

The QUATRA Network Unit (NU) is the hub of the system. The scalable design works with one to four Coverage Units to provide up to 50,000 ft2 (4,700 m2) of coverage per NU.


  • Provides a donor signal to the QUATRA system
  • Provides power to the Coverage Units (up to four)
  • Connects to the CEL-FI WAVE cloud platform for remote monitoring and management
  • QUATRA 1000 only supports a single carrier MIMO
  • Multiple QUATRA 1000 units can be deployed for a multi-carrier solution (for additional carrier support, see QUATRA 2000 and QUATRA 4000)

QUATRA 1000-2000 CU Connection Ports

The CEL-FI QUATRA Coverage Unit (CU) is the remote unit of the system that rebroadcasts the donor signal. The cost efficient and easy-to-deploy system leverages Power-Over-Ethernet (POE) for up to four CUs.


  • Provides coverage for the QUATRA system (up to four per Network Unit)
  • Power is delivered by Power-Over-Ethernet from the Network Unit
  • Self-configuring and self-optimizing
  • Note: QUATRA 1000 CU’s are only compatible with QUATRA 1000 NU’s

WAVE Portal

The CEL-FI WAVE Portal is a cloud-based, remote management platform, that allows users/operators to manage and maintenance CEL-FI systems. The platform is mobile friendly which facilitates ease of use on site. Alerts and alarms can be used as configured out of the box or they can be customized however the owner or admin chooses.

The CEL-FI WAVE Portal Features of the platform include:

  • CEL-FI device and asset management
  • Data modeling and reporting
  • Mobile and computer applications
  • Globally trusted carrier-grade security
  • Users can access the WAVE Portal through the web interface, or integrate it via API’s.

Accessories for the QUATRA 1000

The CEL-FI QUATRA Range Extender (QRE) is a Power over Ethernet (PoE) device that extends the maximum distance between the CEL-FI QUATRA Network Unit and the Coverage Unit.

The QUATRA Fiber Range Extender increases the distance between the Network Unit and the Coverage Unit up to 2 kilometers.

A Small Cell Interface (SCIF) may be used as the donor source for the QUATRA 1000. The SCIF simplifies RF connections between a small cell and Network Units.

Recommended Antennas

The CEL-FI LPDA-R Antenna offers a powerful 12 to 14 dBi gain (depending on carrier frequency) over 617–4000 MHz and is designed to reduce out of band noise, to improve SiNR and overall signal quality. Simple mounting with included U-Bolts.

The CEL-FI Indoor Omni Antenna receives and transmits signal in a 360° pattern and are compatible with the 698 – 2700 MHz frequency ranges that include 3G and 4G signals.
