The Smart Relay is a low cost, easy to install platform that functions as a proxy for the macro base station that extends coverage and improves the quality of service for the residential market.  It is a plug and play single box platform which represents an evolution in range extension for the macro cellular network. Rather than traditional signal boosters, repeaters, or even the latest generation of smart repeaters which repeat and degrade signal quality, the Smart Relay enhances signal quality (SINR, EVM, ACLR etc.) while enjoying additional features that differentiate it from competing solutions or platforms.
