Lets say you have a 500Mbps connection (most have higher). You're already sharing that with 9 B41 carriers (3 carriers / 3 sectors). Up that to 6 carriers/sector and you've got 18 B41 carriers to support. Assuming equal load balancing (1 connection per carrier), that reduces your possible throughput to ~27Mbps per carrier. To be fully effective, each carrier should have full support from the backhaul, which would require a roughly 1.5Gbps connection. And that's not considering the B25/26 and 1x/EVDO connections. 

 

No, backhaul equal to 100 percent of maximum airlink capacity for multiple carriers across multiple sectors is not needed "to be fully effective."  All carriers and all sectors running at full bore simultaneously never happens.  Never, not even close.  Provisioning backhaul at the 50 percent level for aggregate airlink capacity should be more than adequate.

Superb taste there sir!

There certainly are a lot of different forms of lossless. Tidal, from what I've read online, is preparing to begin streaming MQA, which I've also read is going to reduce bandwidth.

 

I am a Tidal subscriber.  Tidal already is streaming MQA from its desktop app, not its mobile app.  And, no, MQA, will not reduce bandwidth.  Rather, it will increase bandwidth.  The standard FLAC container for MQA is 24 bit 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz.

By the way, here is further evidence in the meanwhile :

 

http://www.theverge....io-quality-test

 

 Tidal's claim to fame is that it delivers true lossless streams at 1.4Mbps

 

"streams at 1.4mbps". Oh, yes I know flac is lossless compressed, but that isn't showing that it streams at less than around 1.4mbps-1.5mbps range.

 

That constant bit rate is accurate for 16 bit 44.1 kHz WAV or AIFF or PCM, not FLAC.  The primary premise of FLAC is to reduce the average bit rate so as to reduce storage and/or transmission requirements.  If FLAC were to average 1.411 Mbps, then it would be an almost pointless format.

"HiFi:

Flac 1411 kbps - Lossless

(16/44.1 khz)"

 

Do you not understand data compression and average bit rate?  FLAC is a compressed lossless format.  Its maximum bit rate for 16 bit 44.1 kHz audio is meaningless to the average bit rate.

While that could be the case, many of the audio analysts I've read have mentioned it being 1.5mbps...

 

No, you and/or the analysts are mistaken.  Learn more about FLAC.  For 16 bit 44.1 kHz audio, FLAC will average under 1 Mbps.  I should know, as I have ripped thousands of CDs to FLAC.

Maybe, in that case, an argument relying on a comparison between the telecom market in the United States and the telecom market in Canada is flawed.

 

No shit, Sherlock.

Maybe for you. $90 to $100 for 2GB of data and unlimited talk/text is not cheap in my book.

 

Maybe, even exchange rate aside, many goods and services are more expensive in Canada.  How is that for a revelation?  Now, hand me my Nobel Prize in Economics.

#495784 Anyone get the RCS update yet?

Posted by WiWavelength on 21 December 2016 - 02:28 PM

I have a Sprint Note 5 and I'm suing the Google Messenger app as my default texting app.

 

Are you serving Google Messenger the lawsuit via SMS?

And that has always been sprint's weakness.

 

And indignation long has been many current or former Sprint users' weakness?

So when these new handsets come out, we don't need to worry about a device emitting at 400mW hugging our body (and brain) all day right? I'm a paranoid and I've always worried about my 200mW device attached to my body and I'm not sure how I would feel about these 400mW ones.

 

Ah, then a VZW variant Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is just the handset for you.  Very little RF radiation directed at your body or your serving cell site.

HPUE is an uplink improvement. It increases the transmit power of the device from 23dBm to 26dBm...

 

Not transmitted power, conducted power.  Some handsets already can exceed 23 dBm EIRP on band 41.

Ahem, why is all of this Samsung Galaxy Note 7 talk in this thread?  We already have a longstanding thread:

S4GRU staff will be "pushing out an update" to move the posts to the appropriate location.

Double the transmit power from the UE.

 

Conducted power, not necessarily transmitted power.  We already have some handsets that top 23 dBm EIRP on band 41 by way of antenna gain.  But if the antenna gain is shitty, an increase to 26 dBm conducted power easily could get attenuated back down to 21-22 dBm EIRP.
