This question has been answered many times before in the forum, you can find the answers with a search for “ booster”.
Here are a whole bunch of post to get you started.
You shouldn’t hook a repeating amplifier directly to a cellular modem. The gain coming off of these amplifiers is well over what an embedded modem can tolerate and you are likely to burn the modem out in a worst case, but definitely provide so much noise the modem wouldn’t connect. You’ll want to keep that wireless or use a direct connect amplifier. The manufacturer may be out of stock but we do have the Signal 4G in stock at
Because of the high output power of repeating amplifiers like the Pro 70, you wouldn’t want to direct connect that to a BR1 as it may damage the modem. You would use an internal panel or dome antenna and place the BR1 within range of that repeated signal, or use a direct connect amplifier like the
Never connect a booster to a cellular modem.
The gain of an amplifier/booster is way higher than what a cellular modem can handle.
You could also potentially burn out the embedded cellular modem, thus destroying the Pepwave.
I would suggest using high-gain cellular antennas.
Take a look at this forum post:
We highly discourage the use of any inline cellular boosters/repeater/amplifiers, both @Joey_van_der_Gaag & myself have written previously on this within the forum. In Australia all cellular boosters/amplifiers are banned for very good reason, there is only one approved repeater brand in Australia (and many other parts of the world) though it dose not physically connect to your modems (this has been cover in many places previously).
There is an article in the Peplink …
Rater than rewrite these previous post from @kevin and myself, here are two quotes on your question.
Have a read through the two full posts for more information.
Happy to Help,
I agree that weBoost Connect 4g is not an a solution.
Most of booster design to have antennas on both sides. So
if you connect device directly to booster you broke them.
Exist amplifiers that are design to be connected to IOT/M2M device directly. For example
It is design to connect directly IOT/M2M. But it is design for US market. US marked use 3G/4G bands diffs from EU has.
I can’t install IOT/M2M device near antennas.
