Communication Save Lives
Every day, people inside buildings count on public safety to protect them. Occupants need to send and receive alerts during an emergency situation, especially to first responders such as fire and police department workers, updating constantly critical information about the incident. When this communication can not happen inside the building due to poor coverage, radio can lead to catastrophic consequences.

An improvement of one minute for 9-1-1 response time would save 10,000 lives in the US annually. Intending to prevent such issues the fire and police department together with many other nonprofit organizations create codes and rules for the local building owners to provide and inspect annually to the safety of the in-building occupants, is crucial that all the buildings be verified often checking the area coverage preventing unpredictability and in case the building doesn’t comply with the public safety requirements the building owner will need to provide a BDA system to fix the coverage within the building.
The purpose of the Signal Booster system is to enhance a two-way radio communications signal, especially for Public Safety radios used by the Police and Fire Rescue agencies. During an emergency situation such as fire or shooting, the first responders use portable radios (known as land mobile radios, or LMRs) as a critical communication tool to ensure effective fire ground command and control and are essential for these LMR’s which operate on the public safety frequency be able to operate reliably anywhere within a building always.
MPBX is one of the primary providers of Signal Enhancement Systems. We provide compliance testing and remediation. Our compliance testing services identify which buildings are compliant and which are not. If your building requires it, we can tell which areas will require improvement. We will also include a budgetary proposal to assess the financial and operational impact of installing a signal enhancement system.
