Network.sprint.com and NV

Recommended Posts

I keep reading on here about network.sprint.com not having anything to do with NV upgrades. I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and have a ton of towers on that site that say they are getting additional voice capacity which I assume is an additional voice carrier. Quite a few of these towers now have network vision complete on them and are using the SMR band and a good chunk of them correspond with the voice capacity improvements at network.sprint.com. Is there a chance that the two can be related in areas that nv is going on?

I personally don't say they have anything to do with NV (although I have seen others say that). I like to say they have to do with maintenance upgrades. If a post NV site needs additional voice or EVDO carriers, they will likely show up on network.sprint.com all the same as legacy sites.


I do like people to understand though upgrades shown at network.sprint.com are not an indication of Network Vision starting in a market. People often get excited in non NV markets when they see maintenance upgrades appearing even though these are not a sign of Network Vision or LTE.

    • Added, and 2 more estimated sites: T-Mobile eNB 876480. Looks like its located at (40.62210996397784, -73.97627312607108), as the tower looks like a Sprint setup. T-Mobile eNB 875632. Both this site and Sprint eNB 9022 seem to be located at (40.61640722407462, -73.96985178560767).
    • Many of these sites I am uploading are for sites that do not exist, yet.  Although, I suppose I could go into NR only mode every time I connect to a new site, and then switch back, allowing all the TAC NR trails that occur to now have a home. Ideally, I would love to ne able to add the TAC's myself.  I have the NR Trails CSV file downloaded, and I see all the TAC-less NR entries.  Is there any way I can edit and manually upload them myself?  Maybe create a portal for such an upload?  Or at least give me a way to create at least one manual entry for every new site? Robert
    • Could we send the TAC as -1 if it’s invalid? Then, if there’s and existing site that matches the other info, I could match the web data entry up with it (despite the TAC being absent). 
    • Mine has been enabled.  And they show up in my device logs with the TAC null. Robert
    • If the TAC is missing, an entry is still recorded in the log, but it would not be included in uploads.. so you could probably manipulate a trail log export to add the data to the map if you were able to nail down the sites without the TAC. EDIT: Sites with a missing TAC are only recorded in the log if the option to do so is enabled (Logger > Log Sites with Missing TAC).
