Any updates here?

 

Not yet. I think we will start seeing something within the next 30-45 days.

Hey guys! First, I want to thank Robert, the admin, for creating this site and his continued contributions to it. It's the only one out there that has updated information on Sprint's NV deployment.

 

Second, I want to share a picture- http://postimage.org/image/mwgnc2kpt/. Yup, that's right. Sensorly is showing eHRPD in San Diego! Check out Robert's post to learn more about eHRPD- http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/1819-what-is-ehrpd/. According to this quote from Robert,

 

eHRPD is not deployed site by site. It is usually deployed over an entire market at all at once, and sometimes just over a cluster of sites in a market. The arrival of Ehrpd is not a sign of imminence of LTE arrival. But it is a step forward.

it looks like the San Diego market now has eHRPD. As he mentions, this doesn't mean LTE anytime soon though. Judging from the fact that San Diego wasn't released as one of 100 cities to get LTE next that Sprint published as well as the below quote from Robert,

 

Based on my sources, so far Sprint's lists have only included cities that can launch or prelaunch before the end of the year.

it looks as if January 2013 is still the earliest for the expected launch for the San Diego market.

Good first post. Welcome to S4GRU! :welc:

 

Hope to see you around.

I just noticed the eHRPD too. Unfortunately, I still have miserably slow data. My parents live in Encinitas, very near where 4G was reported in the other thread, but asking them to keep an eye out for it is akin to me explaining string theory to them. I've still got my eyes (an sensors) peeled for any crews working on sites. I was hopeful an October start date, but it looks like January is more likely. Hopefully the Soft Bank deal will light a fire under their butts.

Honestly that would be a let down if the San Diego 4G LTE after not getting 4G WiMax. Honestly I just hope for consistent speedy 3G upgrades in the area.

Not sure what's going on in Del Mar(15th St at Camino Del Mar aka Old Highway 101), but I am not getting any native Sprint 3G whereas I used to before in the same spot. Now I'm on roaming, which makes no sense. While I never got excellent service, I would get ok service, that was good enough indoors. Now it's nothing. Fortunately I have Wifi at work.

Well I think I have reason to believe that the tower was down in Del Mar (same location mentioned as above) was that Sprint must have been in the process of installing eHRPD. Because that's now showing up today as opposed to EVDO-A last night.

 

The first screenshot was from last night, the second one was from today. I am also noticing improved 3G speeds as well. Robert, I assume that is Network Vision in process?

eHRPD doesn't take much to install, it's just a software update, and whole clusters or even markets are done all at once, so it's not likely that that was the reason for tower troubles. eHRPD also doesn't result in faster speeds. Robert has written a large article detailing exactly what eHRPD is. I would not attribute the change is speeds you posted to NV, rather just normal network fluctuation. If you start to get speeds of 2-2.5+Mbps on 3G, then we might be talking NV.

im not very sure if it is NV or not, but im getting faster 3G speeds in Chula Vista.

watched a 3 min video on youtube with no lag on my iphone 5.

Interesting, back in Del Mar (15th St & Camino Del Mar), we've gone back to EVDO-A whereas the other day it was on eHRPD

OH YEAH! SD is finally on the MAP!!!!!!!!!!!

 

We got a tower up and accepted. I am just excited to see that SD is being worked on and has a tower. This means that the backhaul for that area is good to go and now all that is needed is the hardware to be installed, correct me if I am wrong. (by the way, the tower is in Mira Mesa)

 

It does make me wonder which direction the crews are working...did they start near the border and working their way north, working west to east, or....you know what I mean.

 

Any sitings of trucks working on towers?

Over the past 2 or 3 weeks or so ehrpd has been turned off and on especially around CA State Route 56 corridor, Carmel Valley Rd. to Camino Del Mar in Del Mar. Ehrpd doesn't necessarily mean that 4G LTE is coming sooner.

See, this is the problem with sponsor content being posted in public forums.

 

Since the subject is something that was only in a Sponsor thread it can only be posted in a sponsor forum.

It looks like the eHRPD switch has been flipped in the whole San Diego county market. I've been getting it at my parents house in Carlsbad, my condo unit in Scripps Ranch, and at the Chili's by I-8 & Mission Gorge Rd.

FWIW, sales person in North Park expects LTE to go live in March 2013.

      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.
      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.
