So I guess Louisville was first in ky to get b41 setups installed. I was wondering if the site was a network vision site that had it or was it a clear protection site that got upgraded?

Every single application in a Samsung or alcatel-lucent market that I've came across uses a KMW Communications antenna. There is one image of a slightly different antenna model that I've yet to confirm who it belongs to.

Every single application I've found in Ericsson markets are using the CommScope TTTT65AP-1XR antenna.

They have a multitude of different vendors including mainland China ones which is not surprising since they're deploying 8t8r across the pond as well. A lot has been found since that post from months ago. :P

Is that second panel the new nokia panel?

Why do they install the equipment, but it doesn't go live for a few months?

Vendors are still completing their FIT testing.

Different crews, backup upgrades, waiting for detailed setup instructions from fit testing which is now complete.

sorry if this has been asked but i was reading another topic and skimmed across an entry. Is it true that an 8t8r panel has double the capacity with a single 20mhz channel?

Basically yes due to the fact a 20 mhz TDD-LTE carrier in Sprints configuration will top out at 80-90 mbps whereas Sprints 5x5 mhz FDD-LTE carrier tops out at ~37 mbps in the best of conditions.

And now for something completely different.

 

t006_r18789_v4.jpg

In size/weight-constrained spots (namely stealth sites), Sprint is actually ripping out original NV equipment and installing these new antennas, the CommScope DHHTT65B-3XR, with an RRUS 31 B25 and an NSN RRH alongside the original RRUS 11 B26.

So is it safe to say that band 41 will be coming to more sites than expected with these new panels and RRUs.

More than expected? No, Band 41 is still expected to be added to the vast majority of Sprint sites.

San Francisco is full of them and there's a few in my market, a few in Phoenix, and a few elsewhere too. 

 

They relocate the 800 RRU to a ground mount setup sometimes.

So these same antennas are being used in different markets? 

 

How many Band 41 carriers are they capable of?
