The base station is cool, but the anechoic chamber is too!

 

When will these base stations be deployed?

Have these been deployed yet? And if so when would that have started?

Sprints would be upright.

They've been doing something a little different here. Note the dummy load on one of the ports.

Proof. Verizon's the main user of cylinder antennas and mRRUS setups. That brown cylinder antenna can be found in numerous regions across the US and always have belonged to Verizon when investigated.

This looks like the Verizon setup deployed on over 100 sites here in Springfield.

Why would Verizon do B25/B2/B4 pico cells / small cells / mini macros?

Do you mean B13/B2/B4?

Their  newer 1900 equipment is Band 25/2.

Oh did not know that…why would they do that though? Other than PCS G, what is not included in B2? Unless it has something to do with sprint...

They only broadcast B2 but the hardware is capable of 25 (G) if required to do so.

Well, with all the spectrum sprint has on b41 I was expecting all the pico cells to utilize b41. Verizon, to my knowledge, doesn't have a single band with that much spectrum depth.

      Ericsson RRUS82 2.5 GHz 8T8R
      Now being found in Ericsson vendor territory, these augment the existing Nokia Flexi 2.5 8T8R radios in place.

      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.

      Unless this is a mistake. Mobilitie is also helping VZW on there small cell approach too. I'm familiar with them doing arenas with all the providers , just not small cell.

      T-mobile Ericsson Cell Equipment
       
      For Ericsson markets t-mobile uses what is known as AIR antenna units which have the radio unit integrated with the antenna. This type of setup significantly reduces signal loss from the radio to the antenna since they're both practically next to each other and not sepearated by coax jumper cables like that of a remote radio unit.

      (Note typically there are 2 Ericsson AIR per sector)

      Note the addition of a new low band 700 mhz capable antenna + Ericsson RRUS11 B12 (remote radio units) in addition to new TMA (tower mounted amplifiers) connected to the AIR antenna. The new Ericsson RRUS11 B12 + Antenna addition is for tmobiles band 12 700mhz (L700) deployment.
