Network Vision/LTE - Indianapolis Market

Recommended Posts

Hi, could you look into what you can find out about Network Vision in Indianapolis?

 

I know right now, we have a core switch issue that should be replaced on March 1st. I do not know if its from Network Vision or just a normal upgrade.

 

The core switch affects many states.

 

I would love to know which vender is doing our upgrade also.

 

Thank you

I dont know about you but I got my hopes up when Sprint announced network improvements around Indianapolis right before the Superbowl. I had hoped it meant that either they would stick around and get to work on NV/LTE or that meant they were already working on it. But since I havent seen any mention here...

Hey thank you for that picture.

 

Indianapolis is in that iffy area' date=' where it could be two venders.

 

Hoping Robert can take a look and see who the vender is at least.[/quote']

 

Sorry for the delay. I don't know how I've completely missed this thread for several days...errr, weeks!

 

Samsung is the NV OEM for Indy market.

Definitely not. The band aid improvements are being handled by Ericsson under their nationwide network management contract. NV is being handled by different contracts altogether. In your case, Samsung is handling NV deployment in the Indy market.

Great thank you Robert.

 

Sprint has a huge issue with there core switch. Its been open for almost a year, if anyone is interested the ticket number is 8217743.

 

I hope Samsung changes it out soon, that alone will make huge improvements.

Once I came to my senses, I realized that it had to be just a band aid. And now I wait.

Well... according to the "Network Vision/LTE Deployment Running List" thread, Indy should start seeing their first LTE sites in October. Has anyone seen evidence of work commencing on any of the Indianapolis market towers yet? I'm on the south side of town and I haven't noticed anything yet on my local towers.

Turns out it is in Castleton. If the map is accurate, I know exactly where it is. I actually drove by what I assume is the tower yesterday. I will swing by there in about an hour to see if I can get anything. Lucky me, I work about 10 minutes from there. If I pick up anything worth reporting I will post the results in thus thread, and swing by during daylight to snap some pics of what I believe is the tower.

I am pretty damn excited! That seems like a really small area of coverage. Is that normal?

Ya I would think so it may be only one tower tho and some people may not have that app so it won't mark it I think on it but I'm not a 100 percent sure.. I live in Toledo so I still have a little ways to go but its still great to see more coming each week

Drats! I got nothing!

The tower is loaded up with a lot of equipment. I am just guessing that there is another carrier using it also, or maybe the fire station right next to it has equipment on it, because it is loaded with lots of stuff.

I know that those are awful night time shots. I will get more during daylight in the very near future.

These are the Sensorly screen shots while I was there.

Even got this message

I had to walk back on a private drive that leads to the fire station. The blue dot of my location is directly in between the tower and the fire station.

Just for fun I ran a speed test of the 3G while standing there.

Nothing to get excited about

I wonder if they blocked the site when they left for the day. Where is a spectrum analyzer when you need one???

When I head there tomorrow is there anything in particular I should be looking for? Any particular info from my phone that I should try to get?

Some people working on the tower would be a good sign ;)

I am guessing based on my little night time adventure that someone working on the tower had Sensorly running.

I work in the Fishers area, and just got the iPhone 5 Friday (thanks pre-order!). Sprint is definitely starting to activate their LTE sites slowly but surely, as I am getting LTE in my office. Ran some speed tests, and got 10-15 Mbps down, 2-4 Mbps up at various times.

Hey all,

 

I'm the one that posted on the Sprint forums about the Indy site. I work just south of 106th and Lantern in Fishers.....I was shocked when I came in Monday and the LTE was active on my phone. Here's my Speed Test.....I also was the one that hit up Sensorly.

    • Darn that stinks. I just got mine setup using the LTE backhaul and i'm getting pretty decent service.  Still can't use it to make a call no VOLTE however it is nice to be able to use the LTE for my phones and spare the WIFI for other devices.  
    • After seeing this comment, I tried a couple of things and viola, it works. Unfortunately I still wasn't successful connecting to the network. It was a bit tricky with the pi because it has a hard time initializing the modem after a reboot if I don't cycle the power on the modem too, of course that's resetting the IMEI. Working quickly I was able to get it all synced up, but still kept getting the Call failed/Out of Call errors in the logs. If it would have worked I would have worked harder to figure out a way to pass the AT command prior to bringing up the network. I did verify the IMEI with AT commands and uqmi as well. I have all the connections I need, but I am unable to find the thicker 1.13mm coax pigtails. LTEfix doesn't seem to have them either   I ordered a ZBT WG3526 since it seems pretty well supported, and based on your comments I am going to get a beefier power supply for it as well. On a separate note: I figured out a couple of things about the Askey router, not that it matters much those little MHF4 looking connectors on the antenna traces look like test points. When you use the proper cable it acts like a switch and disables the antenna while taking measurements. MHF-SW23 Also there is a serial port nearby the sim slot that is marked Tx, Rx, Gnd on the flip side of the board. I was able to watch the board boot by hooking up an arduino like a jerry-rigged ttl cable, no shell though. I saved the output if anyone cares.
    • I know that, they would have to reconfigure band 5 to include SMR.
    • SMR doesn't cover B5, so those carriers would have to do B26 Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • I've come across a number of Crown Castle oDAS nodes (small cells) on T-Mobile. I think a bunch used to belong to MetroPCS. I found 3 in my own neighborhood and one in Williamsburg. The ones on my neighborhood all share the same the same eNB ID which makes it annoying to track on Cellmapper since it's 3 separate "sites" but only one marker.
