I think he was saying there are  2030 small cells nationwide around the corner. Not sure what the 30 is in there instead of a nice round number like 2000.  :D

 

 

How many small cells in LA does that make counting the Jonathan Kramer's tracking?

Now we just need small cells in Orange County,I.E., riverside, San Diego and band 26 all across SoCal and we'll be set. Lol!

I knew the sarcasm in the context you meant. Knowing Sprint, that's pretty accurate

Weren't NYC small cells already in place and just needed to be converted from WiMax to LTE?

Alot of them were from Wimax hayday's, but the last 3 months i have seen at least 30+ pop up that were not part of the initial Wimax deployment.

Initial quick conversions were existing small cells right of ways.

 

Most recent ones and going forward are organic sprint deployments.

Hey can any of you tell me how the network is in Santa Barbara? Is 800 live there? I'll be heading down to that area in a few weeks.

And in Alaska where it was reported that AT&T is broadcasting an LTE carrier in the PCS G Block, Sprint's PCS G Block.

For the first time I noticed some small cells in West L.A. So far, the parts of the city that have multiple deployments include: Koreatown, parts of Hollywood, NoHo and now West LA. There's probably more, I just haven't come across them.

I actually saw one way down south on Carson Street just west of Normandie last month when I was in town. LA city strip between Torrance and Carson.

It's all over and expanding every day.

 

Majority is in existing light poles.

These aren't small cells, but they're kind of rare:  Single sector GMO macro sites (non-omnidirectional).

      Ericsson RRUS31 B25 + RRUS11 B26
      These are the newest and greatest remote radio units to come from Ericsson. 

      The new Ericsson RRUS31  B25 should be fairly distinctive compared to the earlier RRUS11s and now the RRUS12s being deployed by ATT and Verizon. One of these new RRUS31s can do the job of two earlier RRUS11s thus reducing deployment costs for Sprint and complexity in deploying new sites and making it easier for users to spot as there are now 4 jumpers coming out of one RRUS31 rather than two from each RRUS11 that Ericsson originally deployed. 

      All future deployments will be utilizing the new Ericsson RRUS31s. In addition Ericsson are sending crews to their original deployments and swapping out older RRUS11s for these new RRUS31s due to the aforementioned fact that one RRUS31 can do the job of 2 RRUS11s. Weight savings will be significant at sites where there are 4 or 5 RRUS11 B25s that can be replaced by one or 2 RRUS31s. The Ericsson RRUS31 deployment project is known as the 65 Mhz Project.

      Ericsson High Capacity / 4x4/2 MIMO Deployment
      Note the additional antenna + PCS radio.
      Previously Ericsson utilized additional PCS radios and used RF combiners for high capacity setups where they utilized three or more PCS radios. This new setup will utilize a completey new antenna + radio set just like Samsung and run 4x2 MIMO on the LTE antenna / radio set. 
       

       

       

       
      Ericsson RRUS11 B25 [EOL'd] and B26
      A standard Ericsson Network Vision 1.0 site with 3 RRUS11s where two are dedicated to PCS and one to SMR.  

      This type of setup is no longer deployed or utilized in new sites. Existing sites will be slowly converted to newer RRUS31 B25 via the Sprint 65 mhz project. 


       
      Ericsson NV high capacity site [EOL'd]
      3 or 4 PCS RRUs are present for a total of 4 or 5 RRUS11s per antenna.

      Hey guys I found another newsletter about Sprint and Cox. I'll be posting the article here.

      Here are the Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) Network Vision equipment for Sprint. Their equipment consists of 2x base stations, 6 or 9 Remote Radio Unit (RRU) setups, and 1 standard NV antenna of with connectors on the bottom (4x PCS, 2x SMR). 

      Below are images of Alcatel-Lucent equipment. In these images, you will find Alcatel-Lucent base stations, Sprint Network Vision antennas, PCS 1900 & SMR 800 RRUs, and their configurations.

      Utilizes 2x50w 800 MHz B26 RRU and 4x45w 1900 MHz B25 RRU and compatible antennas.

      Note the lack of 800 MHz RRUs though the antennas are capable of 800 MHz.
