The SD-RP1002-GD in technical term - is a Dual-band Signal Repeater Device for Cellular Network. Some people also refer to it as mobile signal booster.
This remarkable device is EU RED Compliant and it is ComReg approved, which means - it is safe and legal to use in Ireland, UK and other European countries. It is safe to use on any mobile network operators like; Vodafone, Three (3), Meteor, Tesco and EIR, since it does not cause any signal disturbance or interference - which affects signal quality transmitted and received in a particular area, on any mobile device.
The SD-RP1002-GD is ComReg Approved Repeater
The SD-RP1002-GD is designed and manufactured by a Waterford company called StellaDoradus. They are one of the leading manufacturers of legal mobile phone signal boosters in Europe and the only in Ireland. All StellaDoradus products are fully compliant to European R.E.D regulations and passed all E.S.T.I tests, making it safe and legal to use.
In Ireland - ComReg has set technical conditions that Mobile Phone Repeaters must comply with to be permitted. StellaDoradus has complied to all technical conditions, thus, all products of StellaDoradus are permitted and legal not only here in Ireland but also in UK and European countries.

What's In The Box?
This product comes ask kit, in the box you'll fine the signal amplifier, two panel antennas - one for indoor (transmitter antenna) and one for outdoor (receiver antenna), cable set for connecting the antennas, power supply and user's manual.
How It Works?
The SD-RP1002-GD is ideal for providing strong GSM & 4G/LTE signal coverage in your home or small office. As long as there is signal outside your house/office, this device can amplify it and re-transmit the signal throughout your house or any targetted area. It can cover around 4 rooms. For the repeater to work you must have at least 1 signal bar outside your house on your phone.
Okay, so here's how the device works:
Weak signal outside your home/office is received by the outdoor antenna, and takes in the signal through a cable connected to the booster device.
The device will amplify the received signal and do some filtration and interference control magic. Interference control is some sort of technology that prevents signal noise in a network, so as not to disturb neighboring network on the same spectrum.
The boosted signal will be re-transmitted to your target area using the supplied indoor panel antenna. Depending on your needs and applications, the indoor transmitter antenna can also be an omni-directional antenna that can be mounted to a ceiling.
How To Install The StellaDoradus SD-RP1002-GD Signal Booster Kit
To install the SD-RP1002-GD booster kit, follow the simple steps below.
Note: The unit used in the video demo is not the actual SD-RP1002-GD model.
- Install the outdoor antenna in a place where you know you have reasonable signal, like your roof or mast.
- Run the cable down inside your house to the booster device and connect it. A 12 meter cable length should be the maximum for optimal performance.
- Attach the outdoor antenna cable the indoor panel antenna to the repeater.
- Plug in the power to the booster device.
- You're done!
There are smartphone apps available that you can use to exactly point your receiver antenna to the nearest network operator's mast.
We recommend the OpenSignal app for both iPhone and Android.
NOTE: The external receiver antenna has an LED light signal strength indicator. Please refer to the YouTube below on how to use.
What Are the Things I Need To Know Before Buying?
Before buying, make sure and take note of the signal frequency you are receiving in your area. GSM uses 900MHz frequency band, but some mobile network provider transmits their signal at 900 or 1800 MHz or both. So make sure you have taken note of the details.
For the 4G/LTE part, this model only works at 1800MHz frequency (Band 3). So you need to know what LTE frequency your network is throwing you in your area.
For more info on signal frequency, you can read more info from the following pages:

If all 6 (1-6) green LEDs all lit up, the signal from the indoor antenna will be able to cover 30mx30m of open space.The omni-directional ceiling mount antenna on the other hand, is able to cover a radius of 17m.
With the omnidirectional antenna, signal passes through non-metal doors. It is not possible to pass through a solid wall. However, it will bounce off the walls and pass through the doors.
So, if you have a 2-3 storey house, with solid internal walls and a concrete ceiling between the floors, then you will need a 4-port repeater (Office Repeater). Office Style Repeters comes with 4 individually amplified internal antennas and is better suited for this type of house. It is also more suitable for offices.
However, this is only in open space. In practice, it equates to about 4 sized rooms in a typical building layout. The coverage depends on the type of walls inside your building.
Concrete or metal insulated walls will reduce the coverage, whereas plaster board walls and wide open internal spaces allow an increase in coverage.
See Reference Image Below: Building A and building B
All the walls are concrete block and the doors are wooden.
Building A: In this building, we can get away with using only one antenna. The signal will pass through the doors to the three smaller rooms.
Building B: This building has a corridor separating the rooms. To achieve maximum coverage with only one antenna, we place the antenna in the corridor as shown. Notice the reduction of signal in all the rooms. Interior concrete block walls reduce coverage significantly. If you require more reliable coverage in the rooms, you will need more antennas. More antenna would mean more antenna ports are needed. If so, the we recommend the Office Repeater in this case.
