The SureCall Force5 is a self-contained, five-band, Voice/3G/4G LTE cellular signal booster. It is built with high linearity to support up to 100 simultaneous callers and data users for coverage areas of 20-25,000 square feet. The Force5 combines PCS and Cellular dual-bands for all major carriers with LTE and AWS frequencies for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. It is a commercial grade cellular amplification solution suitable for offices, schools, hospitals, industrial buildings, housing complexes and more.
The Force5 is a reasonably priced signal amplification alternative to costly and complex DAS integrations. It is the first 5-band cellular booster compliant with FCC certification standards and the benchmark for providing optimal signal booster coverage in all types of large building environment applications. Introduced in 2009, it has thousands of successful installations throughout the US and Canada.
If you're covering a building larger than 10,000 square feet, please call us at 1-800-761-3041 to discuss your signal coverage specifications and receive a system design.

The Force5 kit comes with a choice of two outside antennas:
The SC-288W Omni Outdoor Antenna has 4dB gain.
Omni antennas receive and send signals in a 360º radius. They can receive signals from multiple cell towers and are best for boosting signal on many different carriers. They are excellent in most situations where the existing outside signal strength is moderate to strong. If the outside signal is weaker than that, you may need the directional yagi antenna instead. We have a guide to testing your outside signal strength here.
The SC-230W-S Yagi Outdoor Antenna has up to 8dB of gain. It is a directional antenna that can reach cell towers up to 30 miles away. It needs to be set up pointing in the direction of the cell tower, and because it is directional it will only pick up signal in that direction. We recommend it for situations where existing outside signal is weak, and you only want to boost coverage for one carrier (or if more than one carrier has a cell tower in one direction). If you need to boost signal coming from different directions, it is possible to set up more than one yagi antenna. Contact us for more help with this.
The Force5 kit also has a choice of two inside antennas:
The SC-222W Omni Dome Antenna is a multi-band omni-directional plastic dome antenna with that broadcasts signals in all directions. It has 6dB gain and is designed for central locations with 360º coverage. The range of the antenna is dependent on three factors: 1) physical obstructions, 2) power generated by the booster and 3) reception from outside signal received and distributed by the outside antenna. Besides the antenna itself, parts include mounting equipment. It needs to be mounted to the ceiling for best results and you will need to run a cable to the back of the ceiling.
The SC-248W Panel Antenna is a directional antenna with up to 10dB gain. Panel antennas allow optimum reception to targeted areas. It can be mounted to either the wall or ceiling.
Number of Inside Antennas
The Sure Call Force5 kit can be ordered in multiple sizes of 1, 2, or 4 inside antennas. The inside antennas can be either the 222-W Omni Dome Antenna or the 248W Panel Antenna.
The standard kit comes with one inside antenna, one 30’ coax cable, and one 75’ coax cable.
The two-antenna kit comes with two inside antennas, a 2-way splitter, one 30’ coax cable, and three 75' coax cables.
The four-antenna kit comes with four inside antennas, a 4-way splitter, one 30’ coax cable, and five 75' coax cables.

Lightning Surge Protector
We recommend using a lightning surge protector in most cases, but particularly if you'll be installing the kit in an area with frequent lightning. The surge protector should be installed in line with the cable and near the amplifier, and should be properly grounded.
An extended warranty for the Force5 is available to purchase. This extends the included three year warranty to five years.
