How To Enable HD Voice or VoLTE on Android and IOS - Cel-Fi DUO+ Tips


HD Voice is a suite of services enabled by VoLTE (Voice over LTE) technology. VoLTE delivers voice calls over the Verizon 4G

LTE network instead of the traditional voice network, providing clearer, more natural sounding audio when both parties are using HD Voice-enabled phones. HD Voice also means that for the first time, simultaneous voice and 4G LTE data connections are possible. Verizon users can make a call while continuing to use an app, run a mobile hotspot, check e-mails, and browse the internet.


There are a few requirements you’ll need to meet in order to use make an HD Voice call. First, you have to be on a standard monthly plan. Sorry Prepaid users, currently Verizon doesn’t let you use VoLTE. Second, you have to have an HD Voice-capable phone. Devices like the iPhone 6, iPhone SE, Samsung Galaxy S5, S6, and S7, plus many more, are all HD Voice ready.

To enable HD Voice on your compatible iPhone:

  1. Tap Settings

  2. Tap Cellular

  3. Tap Enable LTE

  4. Tap Voice & Data

To enable or disable HD Voice on your Android phone:

  1. Go to Settings.

  2. Tap Advanced Calling under WIRELESS NETWORKS.

  3. Tap Advanced Calling again to turn it On or Off.


If you have an older device like Samsung Galaxy S® 5 or Motorola Droid Ultra / Maxx / Mini follow these steps to turn HD Voice on or off:

  1. Go to Settings.

  2. Tap More Networks or Tethering & Networks.

  3. Tap Mobile Networks.

  4. Tap the VoLTE Call setting to turn it to On or Off.


HD Voice calls won’t switch between the 3G and 4G networks  though. If you start a call on 3G and you move to an LTE area, your call would still continue on 3G. Same with VoLTE. A call started on VoLTE can’t jump to 3G if you lose your LTE signal. The call would drop.


With HD Voice enabled, VoLTE calling with simultaneous data use is possible on the Verizon network. What if you are in an area where you have weak cellular signal indoors and can’t make a regular voice call or your LTE signal doesn’t work inside a home or an office?

Enter the Cel-Fi DUO+ for Verizon LTE. The Cel-Fi DUO+ is a zero install, cable free signal booster for the home or office that can boost a 1 bar minimum Verizon LTE signal over 13,000 square feet! By enabling HD Voice on your phone and doing a 5 minute Cel-Fi installation, you can leverage an amplified LTE signal to make clear HD calls where previously you may not have been able to even make a 3G call. On top of boosting the ability to make and receive phone calls, you’ll also be bringing in a stronger and possibly faster connection for 4G LTE data!

Netflix Launches the Easiest Speed Test Site Yet

While intended for Netflix subscribers, Fast.com’s simplistic approach to testing download speeds is rather refreshing. After all, other sites such as Speedtest.net, Speakeasy.net/speedtest, and even SpeedOf.me (which doesn’t require flash or java) are littered with ads and sometimes confusing with all their options. Even our 3Gstore support team would agree that it can be difficult for a less experienced individual to understand and use these other speed test sites. Fast.com is certainly a blessing!

Just launched yesterday, Fast.com takes the guess work out of the equation and gives people a way to see whether they have a fast enough connection for streaming video (or whatever you may be using your connection for). Visit the website and it immediately starts testing your download speed. During the test, you have the option to pause it if necessary. They also include a little FAQ section, which you can get to by clicking the ‘?’ button at the bottom.

Here’s some additional notes from the official Netflix blog :

We all want a faster, better Internet, yet Internet speeds vary greatly and can be affected by other users on your network or congestion with your Internet service provider. When you’re experiencing streaming issues, fast.com allows you to check the download speeds you’re getting from your Internet service provider. Using Netflix servers, fast.com works like other globally available tools including speedtest.net, and the results should be similar in most cases. This consumer speed test is different than our Netflix ISP Speed Index. Fast.com measures your personal Internet connection at any given time. The speed index measures average monthly speeds of actual Netflix streams during prime time hours.

As a side note, there’s no mobile app available at this time. However, the website is optimized for mobile viewing and works just as well as it does on a desktop/ laptop.

Sample speed test

Sierra Wireless Enables the World’s Fastest Vehicle Network for First Responders, Field Services and Transit

http://www.evdoinfo.com/images/stories/sierra_MP70.png

AirLink® MP70 Vehicle Router solves challenge of connecting multiple high-bandwidth in-vehicle applications with LTE Advanced, Gigabit Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity

VANCOUVER, British Columbia-- Sierra Wireless today announced availability of the AirLink® MP70 , an LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) vehicle router for mission critical applications in public safety, transit and field services. Today’s mobile workforce needs to connect more technology in and around their vehicles to enhance safety and responsiveness. The MP70 serves as a purpose-built, high-performance vehicle networking solution that enables multiple high-bandwidth applications to work simultaneously, more than 10 times faster and four times further from the vehicle than ever before. It also provides IT departments with the flexibility to manage fleet and mobile assets in the cloud or in the enterprise data center using Sierra Wireless AirLink Network Management solutions.

“First responders and field services teams need access to uncompromised connectivity at all times, and that’s central to all of our LTE networking solutions,” said Jason Krause, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Solutions for Sierra Wireless. “Using the MP70, mobile workers can communicate seamlessly from in and around their vehicle, as if they were in an office. This allows them to perform critical duties onsite more efficiently, and ultimately respond more quickly and effectively in the field.”

For example, a typical law enforcement vehicle hosts a laptop for dispatch and records management, an electronic citation system, live digital video surveillance, body-worn cameras and automated license plate recognition (ALPR) systems. With the MP70, all of these systems can connect to a high-speed vehicle area network, with both gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi supported, and share a secure LTE-A cellular connection that enables the dispatcher to access all of the systems in real time.

The MP70 is the industry’s first router with a high performance vehicle area network accessible via Gigabit Ethernet, Gigabit Wi-Fi and 300 mbps LTE-A to connect multiple applications in and around the vehicle. It has an integrated events engine, built-in vehicle I/O and support for AirLink Vehicle Telemetry to enable advanced awareness and instant insight into vehicle diagnostics, connected mobile assets, fleet operations and the workforce. The MP70 also provides GNSS and inertial navigation (activated in an upcoming software release), enabling superior vehicle location accuracy, even when out of satellite coverage. Purpose-built for vehicles, the AirLink MP70 ensures superior reliability and continuous operation in harsh environments and is designed to survive extreme transient surges and perform in noisy vehicle power environments.

Special Launch Promotion

The list price for the MP70 is $1049 USD, which includes AirLink Management Service (ALMS) for three years with orders placed in 2016. The AirLink MP70 is commercially available today through Sierra Wireless’s authorized channel partners.

What customers and partners are saying:

“After twenty two years of putting mobile data into vehicles, I have never been more excited about a Sierra Wireless mobility product as I am about their new vehicle router—the AirLink MP70,” says Chip George, Sales Manager, Astral Communications. “Mobile application requirements have quickly outpaced the capabilities of current market offerings, and the demands end-users place on mobile cellular routers have increased exponentially. Wireless networks are now expected to perform as well as wire-line networks and, with 802.11ac Gigabit Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, and LTE-Advanced, the AirLink MP70 makes a giant leap in meeting this expectation and prepares end-users for their future needs.”

"Many public safety and other mission critical communications’ users already enjoy the benefits of applications supported by TETRA networks. The advent of LTE will significantly enhance these existing applications and offer an exciting opportunity for many others using broadband data. LTE networks will have a significant impact on the way many do business," said Phil Kidner, Chief Executive Officer, TCCA, which represents more than 150 organizations from all continents of the world, bringing together all those with an interest in the provision of wireless communications in a mission critical or business critical environment.

“The AirLink MP70 brings flawless connectivity to many mobile assets and critical applications used by law enforcement officers, such as Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), in-vehicle cameras, video streaming, laptops and license plate recognition cameras,” says Gavin Hutchins, Technical Director, TSM Texas. “We believe the MP70 will be instrumental in removing vehicle networking bottlenecks, as demand for high-bandwidth mobile devices continues to grow, and we’re very excited to deploy it in our larger law enforcement fleets in the months ahead.”

Cradlepoint AER1600 LP6 Important Model Change Information 

cradlepoint_logo_2014.jpg

Cradlepoint has recently released its new Category 6 LTE Advanced modems, supporting additional cellular frequencies and carrier aggregation where available. The AER160 has been updated to support the new LP6 modems, however there is an important change that users need to be aware of. In order to fully understand the change, we'll lay out the various versions of the AER1600 that are available.

aer1600.png

AER1600 No Embedded Modem

This AER1600 does NOT include a cellular modem. It is only the AER1600 router. This model has a single modem cavity where you can insert an MC400 cellular modem as well as a USB port for a cellular modem. This gives you a potential to run two cellular connections.

AER1600 with Embedded Multiband Modem (NON LP6 Versions)

This AER1600 includes a built in NON-REMOVABLE MC400 cellular modem. This model also has a single modem cavity where you can insert an MC400, as well as a USB port for a cellular modem. This lets you run 3 cellular connections. The modem cavity can take any MC400 model including the stand alone MC400LP6.

AER1600 with Embedded Category 6 LTE Advanced LP6 Modem

This model does NOT have a built in modem. This ships as two components in one box; the standard AER1600 No Embedded Modem and the MC400LP6. You will insert the included MC400LP6 into the AER1600, plus you have the USB port. This means you have a maximum of 2 cellular connections only.

At this time, the only way to run an AER1600 with 3 cellular connections is to buy the NON LP6 version (which will eventually be replaced entirely with the LP6 versions) and then buy another MC400. Once the NON LP6 versions are gone, the only way to run 3 or more cellular connections with Cradlepoint will be the AER 2100.

This change to the AER1600 also applies to the AER1650 models, the only difference being that WiFi is not built into the 1650. This change to the way the AER1600 is sold can be a major roadblock for users who wish to run multiple cellular connections, which is why we have published this article. The other very important piece of information regarding the MC400LP6 is they do NOT support Verizon or Sprint 3G networks. If you need Verizon or Sprint 3G support, you'll need the NON LP6 models!

For more information, contact the experts at 3Gstore.

SureCall Unveils All-In-One Solution for Poor Indoor Cellular and Wi-Fi Reception - Force7

New Force7 Industrial is the first and only booster to offer trifecta of cellular, Wi-Fi and HDTV capabilities

 

surecall force 7

 

Fremont, Calif.  – SureCall, the premium cellular signal booster manufacturer, today unveiled its Force7 Industrial at DAS Congress in Las Vegas. This all-in-one signal amplifier is the first for large-scale commercial use, improving both cellular and Wi-Fi reception.

“In the future, we’ll live in a world based wholly on cellular,” said Hongtao Zhan, SureCall’s founder and lead engineer. “Boosters are the first step toward the new standard in how we communicate and receive information: virtually cord-free. In addition to boosting cellular data and having HDTV capabilities, the Force7 Industrial both boosts and extends Wi-Fi, answering a need we’ve heard from commercial integrators, especially for new and renovated buildings.”

The Force7 Industrial builds upon the award-winning capabilities of the Force5 to provide the added benefits of a signal extender, Wi-Fi booster, and HDTV capabilities, at the same price. It delivers a complete voice and data signal enhancement solution by employing SureCall’s patent-pending 7-band cellular technology, which delivers PCS and Cellular frequency bands, AWS, and two LTE frequencies for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. It delivers the fastest data rates in the industry and supports over 100 simultaneous users. With a maximum gain of 80dB, the Force7 Industrial delivers coverage to areas up to 80,000 square feet, and offers adjustable upload and download gain for each individual frequency, making it the most customizable booster available.

Additionally, the Force7 Industrial features a built-in Wi-Fi amplifier that improves and extends Wi-Fi coverage over a range of 50,000 square feet via the same indoor antenna. Users simply connect their existing router into the Force7 Industrial’s WAN port, and the booster provides an extended Wi-Fi connection in addition to the extended cellular coverage.  This booster also serves as a router for new installations within the building, eliminating the need for additional hardware and installations.

For those wanting to access over-the-air (OTA) HDTV signals in their area, such as ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and PBS, the Force7 Industrial’s HDTV booster receives and amplifies all locally-aired HDTV television stations and delivers those signals to one or two televisions. A zip code search of OTA HDTV stations is available at https://www.tablotv.com/tools/.

Like all SureCall boosters, the Force7 is covered by an industry-best three-year warranty. As an industrial booster, it requires carrier approval prior to installation by a qualified installer.

The SureCall Force7 is available now at 3Gstore
