He asked about LTE discovery. SCP displays "Sprint B41"

 

Link goes to an image that has national db info and did not want to post it down this low. It is the post about naples, fl from last night. SCP still displays gci. http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/5816-tdd-lte-2600-band-41-8t8r-sites-accepted-discussion-thread/?p=493879

That explains why I havent seen any. I use scp most of the time. Will LTE Discovery work?

I first noticed it looking at the engineering screen and saw an EARFCN I didn't recognize.

It looks like third carrier is starting to go live in orlando only saw a few. Also I only passed by one sprint B41 Jacksonville site I think it had third carrier live but I did not see the B41³ GCI only the EARFCN  CA'd with B41².

 

B41³ map from my logs.

It was 41374 for naples and tampa. I didn't notice 3rd carrier in orlando until after I went through my logs.

There is no 3xca yet. The EARFCN is just a carrier number. Cities with the 3rd only have 2xca right now. It chooses any of the 3carriers to do it.

An EARFCN on its own tells you nothing about carrier aggregation.

I could have swore I seen a post where lilotimz said if a site has 3 carriers then 3xCA is in fact active. It's just that the only device that can use it at the moment is the HTC Bolt.

3xCA is active for engineers only. Not to the public.

No. Still not available to the public. The feature is enabled by default on the Bolt, but that doesn't mean the network allows you to use it.

Have already heard a couple folks achieving greater than 2xCA speeds. I will find link and post when I have time.

Please do. Because thus far, with rigorous testing on various devices, we have not found any evidence of 3xCA being live for public use.

Just checking anyone know if Sprint has any B41 yet inside any of the Disney parks yet? Or Universal?

Like Das? I know band 41 has been at universal for 2.5 years now. Now they have 3 DAS systems inside of the park. One for city walk, islands of adventure and universal. 10x10 b25 and 5x5 b26 with band 41 3xCA and Clearwire coming from towers close to the park.

Im from NYC but I was at Magic Kingdom last weekend and Sprint was very good, speeds anywhere from 10mb/s to 40mb/s.

Im guessing a DAS is installed?

I'm in the northeast suburbs of Orlando. It appears that there are more posts about Orlando in the Jacksonville thread than here. Last post before now was 10 months ago!

I'm 500 yards from a tower (internal antenna, camouflaged pole type) that has no B41 and just 5×5 B25; so, basically, Sprint service sucks. B41 is 1.7mi away, through foliage, so I can't get anything from there no matter what antenna configurations I try.

Is there any news as to what Sprint's plans are for greater Orlando (now that no merger is in sight)?

Here's an idea. I know it's a big stretch, but.... I recently met the Japanese Consul General for Miami. Is this influence path improbable:

me -> Japanese Consulate -> Softbank -> Sprint -> B41 !

The site does not even have B26? If so, must be a GMO site. In that case, it will take either a replacement or a rebuild of the stealth site to allow for B26 and B41.

      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.
      Alcatel-Lucent 4x40w 25 MHz PCS 1900 B25 RRUs (Panasonic) [old]

      Alcatel-Lucent  4x45w 1900 MHz B25 RRU 

      ALU 2x50w B26 800 MHz RRU [KMW Communications]

      Older Panasonic Setup [4x40w 25 MHz B25]




      Standard Alcatel-Lucent Setup 
      Utilizes 2x50w 800 MHz B26 RRU and 4x45w 1900 MHz B25 RRU and compatible antennas. 



      Closer Look at the connectors on the bottom of the antennas

      Special Case Mexican IBEZ Setup
      Note the lack of 800 MHz RRUs though the antennas are capable of 800 MHz. 


      High Capacity Setup


      High Capacity no SMR 800 IBEZ setup

      The 850 MHz LTE Sprint network is so congested in De Soto MO. I also have proof on my SDR Radio.
       My SDR Radio can only show 1.920 MHz of the 5 MHz wide LTE Signal.
