    Network Vision/LTE - LA Metro Market

    MMs and flexi zones primarily in light poles. Clear sites are mostly Samsung unless you're in northern parts which was Huawei converted to Nokia. b25 is 10 MHz A + 5 MHz G. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Clearwire small cell conversions with tradition backhaul. New ones are mostly relay fed. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Thing to do is speedtest result + SCP + engineering to verify imo. Maybe the result of the cable deal with cox?

    Very. Relay fed small cells are single carrier only. Traditional backhaul fed sites are like finding a needle in a haystack so far. ^ actual first dual carrier small cell configuration confirmation right there. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Interesting PCIs. Typically small cells are in the 480+ range... Also are the Nokia small cells running 2 carriers? Noticing the MM² and 39 GCI ending.

    Anatomy of a Sprint Triband Hexadecaport (16 port) Antenna Setup

    Not unless they double up antenna / radios.
  8. I'm not sure what the confusion is then. You have a mini macro on macro deployment there. Is there something unique about it that should be talked a out? Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  9. So a mini macro on macro standalone site? Do you have a location? Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    What's hard to believe? Nokia removed the Samsung Clear eNB and replaced it with their own Nokia eNB while adding additional capacity at minimal cost. It's something seen in several markets that has been happening very slowly." MMR's (massive mimo radios) are not ready to be deployed for prime time at this time.

    Not necessarily. Nokia mini macros and most small cells are all in one eNB that contain the BTS and RRUs in one compact unit. All it means is that there is an added mini macro to an existing site adding another additional 40 MHz of capacity based on the GCI ending. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Not a mistake. It means what it means. High capacity mini macro setup. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  13. It is not for public release, yet. If you've seen their network slides you'll see it go from macro, mini macro, airpole, magic box, and femto. Only the MB and Femtos are customer accessible. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  14. Yeah that's the airspan airstrand which is a strand mounted small cell using Docsis for backhaul.. The other variant would be the Airpole which is a low powered standalone small cell you can put on a pole on the side of a house. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Contact the MB support line. Could be the Donor tower needs a software toggle to support MBs.
  16. Yeah. Just put it into another macro site and doing a bit of work bringing it up. Again massive MIMO units will be in high density urban areas where it's impact will be felt the most. It's numbers will not make a dent compared to 8t8r and the mini macro / small cell units which would provide the vast majority of coverage and capacity. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  17. Mini macros are the same exact units used in stand alone small cell deployments and on macro sites. They're cheap, they require minimal work to configure, and are widely available compared to macro equipment and have the factor of being reusable if not needed anymore on macro sites. The vast majority of macro sites outside of rural or suburban areas will have 8t8r units with a few hundred in urban high density areas having massive mimo units. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    sprint network 2018 predictions

    Yep. It'll be sprints own spectrum at the end with the CDMA 1x800 carrier pushed right up next to the LTE 800 carrier while Solinco does its own thing. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  19. Nice. That's the 4th carriers based on GCI indicators of 0C and 0E but the 40270 with GCI of 08 is a bit weird. Usually 00-02 is 1st, 03-05 is 2nd, and 06-08 is third for an 8t8r three carrier chain. Interesting.. Try and grab more of the GCIs if you can. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  20. I mean if people want "coverage" smacking down a B26 mini Mac and an omnidirectional antenna gives you that. *totally not because we found such a site in a rural previously no native coverage area* Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  21. What are the GCI of the cells? If it's 4/5/6 then it'll be sequential 0C/0D/0E and onwards. Small cells (Airspan) will be 01 and then 04(?). Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  22. Mostly done. Triband (750, 1900,2500) sites will be getting deployed once the cleanup from the hurricane mess is completed.
  23. I mean Verizon is deploying so called "5G" via higher order MIMO (4x4 MIMO / massive mimo + CA on all bands) & newer better performing antennas in addition to split sectors here. I doubt any carrier is ready to deploy NR anytime soon as most of it is appears to be backward compatible as software enhancement to a lot of existing equipment in addition to not being finished in terms of what will be in the final revision. If anything, I imagine whatever ATT does will mirror that of verizon which makes sense considering both have been undergoing another full site revision to 4x4 MIMO via new radios and antennas. ATT also has the additional plus of deploying a new 10x10 700 MHz Band 14 network layer for Firstnet and their own usage which makes usage of HPUE and is greenfield spectrum.
