DAB Repeater

In car parkings, shopping centers or offices the reception of DAB+ is by no means self-evident. Especially in buildings with thick concrete or metal facades there is often no DAB+ reception. The DAB-Repeater developed by SUMATRONIC solves this problem. Buildings can be retrofitted at low cost so that the reception can be guaranteed in best quality.

DAB repeaters work like very small radio stations. For legal operations, these must meet a large number of technical quality specifications and guidelines required by the Federal Office of Communications (OFCOM). This includes not only the amplifier but also various technical elements that avoid the interference of other radio transmitters (e.g. fire brigade, emergency services, ambulances, the police etc.)

Systems that do not comply with the legal requirements of OFCOM (NT-3003 V1.0.0) can lead to a liability risk.

Sumatronic has been offering compliant systems for many years, which are usually installed and measured in close cooperation with your in-house electrician / antenna installer. Operation of the system is maintenance-free and does not incur any license fees.

The DAB-Repeater is:

  • A quality product “Made in Switzerland”
  • Affordable and maintenance-free
  • Easy to install (by the house electrician)
  • Available in various designs
  • No operating costs (no fees, very little power consumption).
  • Risk-free! Meets OFCOM guidelines (no disturbance of emergency frequencies / radio by emergency services)

General information of the Swiss OFCOM:

Please note that our DAB-repeaters are manufactured according to the regulations for Switzerland and Liechtenstein and the proper operation of our products in these countries indoors is legal. In other countries, there may be other regulations or laws that may restrict or even prohibit the use. The purchaser and/or the user are fully responsible for the full compliance with the laws and regulations in his country. Sumatronic expressly disclaims any liability.

The DAB-Repeater is a cost effective solution and available in various versions. Would you like more information or a more detailed consultation? Please contact us.

“We can hardly imagine our everyday sales activities without an installed DAB-Repeater in our store. Showing customers DAB+ radios without the repeater, is like showing TVs without pictures.”

“Sumatronic has implemented this project to ensure significantly improved DAB reception in difficult areas of the building. From creating a series of designs, to supporting our own internal team, to a high quality installation, we were really impressed with the results.”
