I understand from your comment, before network vision the actual radio was in a cabinet on the ground and the amplifier was where the RRU is now on top of the tower behind the antenna panel?

Well the amplifier wasn't necessary behind the panel, it depends on the length of coax really.

Wow that photo is worth a 1000 s4gru blog words
-I suppose the active heads need a power connection.
-It seems the advantage of the future method seems to be that the active head antenna panels could be mounted anywhere you can get a simple fiber connection and the base station server can be placed wherever it is convenient. In other words less components, less weight, more configurations, more flexibility....

1) Of course

2) The major advantage is there is essentially no signal loss because the radio is built into the antenna. Also, less space. Not sure about the weight.

 

Fun fact: T-Mobile uses activate antennas. Ericsson AIR21 panels. They're pretty cool and pretty easy to find.

Stumbled across a new 2.5 sector in the wild. It's not live yet, but when it is, it will be covering Heinz field in Pittsburgh.

Question out of curiosity - is there a noticeable difference in the signal strength/performance with these Samsung antennas over the old clearwire huwei antennas?
