Revenstar is a locally owned and operated family
specializing in the installation and maintenance of antennas and
high-speed data networks for commercial enterprises. Our customers
include hotels, real-estate and property management companies,
restaurants, retail stores, builders, public utilities, internet
service providers, cable companies, and radio and television stations.
We have expertise in installing and
maintaining a variety of satellite
equipment, including high performance C band TVRO downlink antennas in
sizes up to 6 meters for cable headends, SMATV, and syndicated
radio and TV programming, Ku band antennas for satellite news
gathering, business TV, and in-store music, as well as bi-directional
and Ka band VSAT
terminals for remote data acquisition and automated system control.
Distributing satellite signal in a large
institution such as a hotel or
apartment building can be challenging. Because the type of distribution
network commonly used for cable or OTA signals isn't able to handle
switching, or the higher frequencies used for satellite signals, the
company technician often has no option but to install a separate dish
We have a variety of inexpensive solutions available that will allow
all of your tenants to receive programming from a single master
antenna, keeping your tenants happy by providing quality low-cost
while preventing your building from turning into a dish farm.
Cellular base stations are a great option to
provide service where cell
signal is available, but wired internet connectivity is not. Typical
uses include voice/data/internet connectivity for remote locations as
well as vehicles and temporary sites, two way communication with
automated systems, and transmission of real-time telemetry data. Our
modems are a drop-in replacement for a DSL or cable modem, and are
compatible with all major carriers including AT&T, Verizon, and
Because of the option of using a high gain antenna, we can provide this
service even in areas where a typical cell phone may have little to no
signal, so contact us for a free site survey
to determine your coverage.
A great way to provide ambiance to dining
areas, lobbies, waiting
rooms, and retail spaces. We have a diverse portfolio of products to
serve any size facility, including ceiling speakers from Quam™ approved
for use in plenum airspaces in both 8Ω and 70V versions, outdoor
speakers, a full line of rack mount amplifiers, program sources
including FM and Sirius satellite radio receivers and antennas, digital
media servers, phone patch systems for paging, and CD players. We also
have solutions for open spaces and sound reinforcement in auditoriums,
gymnasiums, and churches.
WiFi can be challenging to deploy in a
business environment for several
reasons, including interference from adjacent stations, propagation of
signal to all of the areas where you need coverage, and keeping your
private traffic segregated from any publicly accessible
We use our knowledge of both networking and radio propagation to design
a custom tailored network for your business that will provide the
maximum throughput and coverage using the fewest possible access
the most of your existing infrastructure by offering free public WiFi
using your existing access points without worrying about security
breaches or customers taking unfair advantage your bandwidth. We
install and service both Cisco and Mikrotik equipment, including
tailored for retail.
Keeping in touch with and keeping track of
your employees and assets is
an important part of managing them properly. We offer a variety of
mobile/in-vehicle systems for both business and government.
We install antennas, feedline, and receivers/transceivers for CB, VHF
and UHF land mobile radio, cellular data and telephony, Sirius
satellite radio, GPS, VHF and UHF public safety two-way radio, and
satellite tracking and telephony. We also have complete cellular
booster systems, and base station packages for CB.
Avoid the rising costs of subscription TV
and music services with your
own over-the-air antenna. Your antenna will allow you to receive free
HD broadcasts from your local stations, as well as FM broadcast
with a much greater range than an indoor dipole. These are a fantastic
solution to provide entertainment for waiting rooms, employee break
rooms, dining areas, hotels, and hospitals without raising your
operating expenses. Take advantage of your local FM stations to provide
free in-store music. Having a free, always
TV signal is also a great selling point for an apartment complex,
campground, or mobile home park.
Because nearly all of your business'
critical data is carried over your
building's structured cabling network, it only makes sense to have a
dedicated cabling professional install it, rather than trust your
builder or electrician, then spend extra money to fix theirmistakes.
We install patch bays, comms cupboards, distribution frames, fiber
trunked switched ethernet networks, as well as run UTP, coax, and fiber
for any application. It doesn't matter if you have just a few endpoints
or hundreds, our systems are designed and installed to be easily scaled
Microwave links are a reliable and
inexpensive way to move data across
long distances where running fiber would be too costly or impractical.
We offer a wide variety of services for microwave, including link
planning and link budgeting, antenna and radio installation, dish
alignment, and waveguide and coax installation.
Our product portfolio covers everything from the common unlicensed
C-band WiFi links used by small businesses to route data across a CAN
or MAN up to FCC Part 101 licensed C and Ku band TDM carrier grade
links for ISPs and cell carriers. Whether you need to move data a few
hundred feet or several dozen miles, we can develop a solution that
works for your budget. Feel free to use our
custom link planning software to help estimate your needs.
We can do everything you need to keep your
remote tower or cell site
running properly, including: general cleaning, HVAC filter changes,
line pressurizer system maintenance such as desiccant cartridge or
gas replacement, replacement of rigid and flexible coax and waveguide
transmission lines, beacon replacement, painting, replacement or
installation of antennas, and removal of old antennas.
Do you have something in mind that isn't
covered in the previous sections? Let us know
and we'll see if we can find a
solution that's right for your needs.

a custom software application for calculating free-space path loss,
determining antenna gain, converting between various units of measure,
and creating link budgets. We use it for all of our projects, and you
