Identifying Signal Strength and Interference
Ever wondered what makes signal strength weak or strong or how you can improve your signal strength? All cellular devices utilize a radio transceiver to communicate with a broadcast tower or repeater station. High quality signal reception is the key to reliable performance of your M2M (data only) cellular device.
It is important for consumers to understand that cellular network providers do not guarantee service or signal strength, and you may not be able to receive all types of cellular services or signals in all areas.
