That is no second carrier. That is a 10x10 FDD-LTE carrier on Band 25.

 

C5+G 1905-1915 Mhz.

I will check the engineering screen.

LTE Discovery says 26040/8040 but please do. 

 

Edit: Seems to be missing from AJs potential C5+G 10x10 markets :P

Please do. From observing the Columbus 10x10 rollout, it pops up slowly one by one everywhere with not all sites being 10x10. There is still several 5x5 mixed in here and there slowly going bye bye one by one.

How the heck does Orlando get a 10x10 B25 carrier before Chicagoland? :wall:

Should have stayed in FL...

Expect the B block 5 MHz carrier to be expanded to 10 MHz in the future after refarming CDMA. Chicago is one of the few markets where practically basically every site is using all available PCS spectrum so refarming may take a while.

I hope it happens soon. I'm still stuck on a stupid Verizon variant iPhone 6 (activated on Sprint, long story) without B41 support... It's been a little annoying not being able to take advantage of the extra spectrum.

 

So in Orlando, does that mean that they only have a single 10x10 B25 carrier deployed since it's C5 +G? Or is there still a 5x5 B25 carrier deployed somewhere else in the PCS band?

In the area now about the exact spot. Still don't see it. These are the speeds.2f94881ab069d4c36aca2b4a0cd14c00.jpg5caf1449b131768c3c43341c779c6f11.jpg

Interesting.. I may be incorrect then but Orlando does have the spectrum for it.... 

 

Go to Sprint specific engineering screen with EARFCN and GCI information. GCI ending is 07 usually indicates a 2nd PCS carrier or 10x10 carrier unless it's some small cell setup...

If it has been deployed then the G block 5x5 carrier is gone forever where 10x10 is live.

What is the standard GCI ending for Ericsson PCS? SCP may have been confused then at the GCI ending.

Messed up the screenshot. I will try and get back over there. Gotta sneak away from my gril somehow. Won't be easy.

First carrier band 25 is 01,02,03. First carrier band 41 is 31,32,33 and second carrier 39,3A,3B. I have not seen 07 used.

 

The GCI is neat 05E = Orlando and 20A is above the range for sites. The 07 may mean the 7th small cell if they are using sectors for small cells like they did in Cleveland.

If Orlando is truly going exclusive on 10x10 B25, I'm curious if older single-band Samsung devices will be able to connect to the LTE network. I recall hearing about some sort of limitation on those devices which prevents them from connecting to anything larger than 5x5 on B25. I still have my Galaxy S3 which I believe was one of those included devices however I do not live in the area any more to investigate.

I think they all had a permissive change revisit with the FCC.  I think all Sprint LTE devices can now do 10x10 in B25.

If I find myself down in Orlando in the next few months I'll be sure to test my GS3 to confirm, if someone else doesn't beat me to it of course.

 

Also to add, Sprint has made excellent progress in Orlando since I moved up north in June 2014. In the 2H2015 Root Metrics report released on 10/15, Sprint finally beat T-Mobile and tied AT&T for 2nd place.

I basically am convinced now that all Sprint LTE devices from the beginning have been 10 MHz FDD capable.  They just were not lab tested, thus not FCC authorized for 10 MHz FDD.  The lab testing and Class II filings just were formalities to ensure that the devices remain legal.  The devices almost certainly do not require firmware updates.

Band 25 second carrier is 09, 0A, 0B in Ericsson markets. I have not seen 07 used for anything before.

Something about sectors 06/07/08 is happenning in the chicago thread. But that is a Samsung market not sure if it is the same.

 

I was thinking with small cells coming and what they did in cleveland split up a gci sector.

Should have said - haven't seen 07 used in Ericsson/ALU markets before (they have used the same patterns so far). I've been watching the developments with the 10x10 channels and 06/07/08 sectors in Samsung markets.

I understand I seen the gci is above 1C8 which is the highest for 05E market( band 25). And all the sites gci around universal are known.

 

Anyways I will keep an eye out when I go through orlando this week to see if I find anything.

The 2nd B41 carrier is present around the Daytona Beach / Ormond area, however there are still a lot of Clear B41 sites with one carrier.

 

Also, I did not come across a 2nd B25 carrier in this area.

 

Overall the balance between B25, B26 and B41 seemed to work very well during my short visit.

      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.

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