Samsung Outdoor Pico eNB 1.9 Ghz

 

This is the Samsung Outdoor Pico eNB small cell for LTE 1900 that will be deployed by Sprint. Outdoor small cells are utilized to providie additional capacity and coverage mainly in areas where there is a high population density such as major malls, major streets with lot of busineses, train stations, airports, and the like. 

 

Small cells are mostly PnP where you just plug everything in and fire it up and it will auto configure itself by downloading parameters and additional information from the network. Utilizing the latest advances in small cell technology, these pico cells would also over time optimize itself based on feedback from UE and neighboring small cells and macro cells.

I know this is WIP... but...

 

What kind of antennas are likely to be used with this?  Are these just for 1.9 GHz?

Unless you are Chicago you haven't. Sprint small cells only exist in fits until deployment which will not happen til summer.

EBay.

I'm not lying btw. You can find sprint vendor equipment with the cascade ID's and such on eBay for sale.

So these are coming up in Chicago now? Or, have they already been there.

Isn't B25 saturated in most populated areas?  Why not deploy B41 small cells?

I was going to say.. why would they bother to use these instead of small cells that can do both 1900 & 2500/2600?

Increasing site density increases network capacity which decreases saturation... Adding additional bands isn't the only way to increase data speeds. Sprints site density is abysmal in many many markets compared to the other three.  

 

They do have B41 small cells. Different project, same phase. Ericsson has their 1.9 FDD pico and Nokia has their 2.6 Flexi Zone.

Does not yet exist.

What do you mean these are "plug-and-play?" Just power? How do they connect to the network? Or, do they just act as repeaters. Is there a lengthy permit process with these?

You plug in the power line, you plug in the ethernet Cat 5e/Cat 6 or Fiber Optic backhaul, and have the green light showing and the job of the installer is done. Most of the prep work is done at the warehouse. 

 

Unlike macro sites you don't need different individuals and crews in order to get a site live. No need for integration and comissioning techs or acceptance techs that do site inspections and the like. Nada. 

 

Upon power up the small cells will automatically discover and authenticate itself into the Sprint network, download the preset configuration parameters from the network after authentication and authorization, and then optimize itself by adjusting parameters based on feedback from its surroundings via its own readings and information sent back from UE that are connected to it.

Seems simple, but where is this fiber/Ethernet cable going? Say they decide to put one of these on busy Michigan Avenue in Chicago on a light post, where does it go? Seems like quite a project.

This is just data correct? So plug and play like a big ass wap. ☺
