Qualcomm MDM9615 chip in iPhone 5


Recommended Posts

Robert, I know this is probably a dumb question and probably not within the reach of S4gru's sources, but do you know how Clearwire will deploy and schedules?

 

i.e., Will the be focused on their current WiMax footprint?

 

We have some Clearwire sources. However, there is not a lot of information out there yet. What we do know is they are going to focus on their existing WiMax sites first, and only on sites where Sprint needs additional capacity (or other future partners). So if you saw a coverage map of Clearwire LTE after the first wave of deployment, it would look like a bunch of LTE islands over their first cities.

 

The goal for Clearwire is to not build a cohesive network over any one market, but rather sell extra capacity to other carriers who need it at point loaded zones. Clearwire is working with Sprint (and possibly other unnamed partners) to identify which Clearwire sites will need LTE most. These are the ones they are focusing on first. In later phases, they will expand these hotzones to 31 of their existing markets. In possible future unplanned phases, the may move to all 71 of their markets, or even on to Sprint Network Vision sites outside their markets.

 

In some news today, Clearwire told Kevin Fitchard of GigaOm that they are starting work in two weeks: http://gigaom.com/2012/09/20/clearwire-breaking-ground-on-new-lte-network/

New phones, same with 800MHz LTE

 

I don't see how this is a problem. Most of us won't see LTE until next year. The only item I was concerned about was access or availability to 800 1x. Most of the problems I have here in NM is the distance of a tower. Now it just depends if it is 800 1x is coming to NM.

We most likely will get CDMA 800 (1x) with our initial deployment. It's possible that we may be late enough in the NV deployment to get LTE 800 also. But that's a stretch.

 

I get good Sprint coverage between ABQ/Santa Fe and Espanola/Los Alamos (where I spend 75% of my time), especially since moving to the GS3, which is a solid radio performer. However, 800 will really be appreciated at the times I spend on I-40, where site spacing exceeds 1900.

 

I have not been south of Los Lunas on Sprint before. But I hear it can be patchy heading to Cruces. In fact, I'm just about to head out to ABQ for the day now.

I love how you look on the bright side of things and say that NM will be late enough in NV deployment to get 800 LTE. Thanks for reminding of the very patient wait I will be doing.

Do you think they will also deploy LTE for Leap (Cricket) hot zones or is the initial deployment all about Sprint?

It's quite possible. However, I only know about coordination with Sprint. But this does not seem out of line. However, if one of you Clearwire folks (and you know who you are) have any information about this and wanted to PM me, I'd be happy to know.

    • The powerline tower overlooking downtown Redmond has FINALLY been upgraded. I guess it took this long due to the large birds nest on top of the tower. During the upgrade, they moved all LTE frequencies including B41 to one eNB 84782 and decommissioned eNBs 97521 and 95988. Additionally, the tower finally has all three 5G-SA bands (gNB 1852420). 
    • I have 3 Samsung Galaxy a10e for mapping LTE. For 5G I like the Samsung a32 5g (both factory unlocked).  In both cases try to get one with firmware from the spring of this year.  Then you can use the Samsung Band Selection app no matter what the carrier. Been trying to get my OnePlus Nord n200 5Gs squared away with android 11 and rooted.  OnePlus bought out by Oppo thus service and strategic direction are both problems.  Just getting an e-mail back for the unlock the bootloader process is taking a while. Once we get out of NSA, 5g will be much easier to map. Factory unlocked esim issues are plentiful on high end Samsungs.  My quest is a factory unlocked phone that works well with SCP and Cellmapper for both SA and NSA, with multiple active esims that work easily with MVNOs, functioning VoNR, great reception and transmission, full band support for AT&T and Dish. My next hopeful candidate is the s23.
    • Forgot to mention that I traveled all over the lower Hudson Valley last weekend while using the Verizon eSIM trial to directly both carriers' coverage on one device as opposed to using a second phone. Coverage was virtually the same in my experience with the biggest exception being the Bear Mountain region. All along the Long Mountain Parkway from Woodbury Common going east, coverage remained virtually the same. Both carriers reported similar signal strength going all the way down to 1 bar at the same times but when I arrived at the roundabout near where Long Mountain and Palisades Parkway meet up with one another, Verizon had a much stronger signal compared to T-Mobile's 1 bar. Verizon has a series of sites installed all over Bear Mountain State Park to provide signal to visitors. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like any other carrier attempted to do the same in the 2+ years since they got built. Because of these sites when you're driving on Bear Mountain Bridge and along Bear Mountain Bridge Road going south, Verizon has slightly stronger signal than T-Mobile. — — — — — I'm thinking about buying a burner Android phone to get back into mapping again because I drive around the city a lot and never get the chance to do so. I have a Galaxy S7 Edge in a drawer with an inactive T-Mobile SIM but it doesn't register LTE at all and it doesn't have Band 71 so it's not that useful for me. Any recommendations for phones/plans to map cheaply?
    • So what am I missing???   Why cant i get the s22 ultra do a screen share through cord??  Trying to get it to share to my 10" auto screen. I could enable it with the note 20.. but I cant seem to get this to do it.. All the videos show 1 way, but that setting isnt there.
    • Got the update last night. Broke SCP notifications .... so yay.
