Network Vision/LTE - New Orleans Market

Recommended Posts

If you have a chance swing by the two active sites of LTE. I have them listed on the spreadsheet. Link is in the sponsor forum. Or you can look on the completed sites map. We need screenshots of the LTE engineering screens as I describe in my signature. Since you have an iphone we can get the HEX/DEC IDs we need.

This morning on my way to work I checked out the purple sensorly stripe on Seigen. My EVO LTE wasn't picking up anything other than 3G. It certainly wasn't coming from the Seigen/Burbank tower or the Bluebonnet Post Office. I did notice while on Seigen headed toward Burbank that because you are up on the Highland ridge (such as it is in south Louisiana) in the rearview mirror you have a clear line of sight basically all the way to the horizon which is right in line with the Old Hammond/Flannery tower. As far as that is, I suspect that is what was mapped by someone's Note2 and is showing up on sensorly.

The sprint store on bluebonnet swears this is there tower right behind their store... Doesn't look like it to me but like I said I'm new

My office is just down the street from this one. I've always been amused by the Sprint corporate store with the Verizon tower right next to it (the actual Sprint site is at the Post Office). Kind of like the Google aerial photo of the Sprint tower in New Orleans with the ATT truck clearly visible leaving the parking lot.

For those on the Nola Westbank, I'm getting LTE around the Behrman/Park Place area. It is showing on sensorly. There's also more information in the sponsors section.

You'll need to post pics of the LTE Engineering screens to verify the serving cell. Or since you are a sponsor I have the spreadsheet in that area with all the serving cells listed, site info, dates, coverage links, etc.

 

If you've found new serving cell IDs then please by all means let us know where so we can figure out which site is active. Would be pretty cool to see a 2nd wave firing up!

And the link to how to access the LTE engineering screens on your phone is: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/2198-network-visionlte-new-orleans-market/page__view__findpost__p__90231

 

There are two sites in BR active. Sherwood & Florida and just Southeast of there, Old Hammond & Flannery. Pull up Sensorly and you can see the dark purple of exactly where it radiates.

Went by the Jefferson/Corporate site today to confirm the RRUs. Of course it was crappy overcast weather, worse day to be taking pictures. But I did find two problems with the site. No power/fiber cables to the RRUs. The pink plastic cap is still on the power side. Only the antenna leads and the RET module wire is hooked up. So it looks like basically the crew that mounts the RRUs and panels has been by. The wiring crew has not. I could not tell if there were any new basestation boxes as this is a VERY busy tower in terms of equipment. There was fresh set of orange paint lines and new fiber conduit ran to the service pole. Cox has fiber on this pole as well as an AT&T box here so I have no idea who the vendor would be.

 

I was able to hit many sites and check out the area, nothing else to report other than nothing changed at many sites.

That's it. The cell identity IDs we didn't have. Had the 3 digit IDs. This will help us figure out when others say they have LTE somewhere in BR if it is a new site or not.

 

The EVO LTE shows the cell identity version in hex.

Let me know when you all want some others, if I can't map then at least I can help somehow

About to take a look at something and post my findings in the other thread, but yes I did a lot of mapping today. I love sensorly It's great resource especially for non-sponsors. Everyone should keep an eye on it because a lot of sites are getting mapped really quickly.

I've been seeing an EATEL crew stringing lines up along Perkins in various areas between Bluebonnet to College. I assume it is fiber. Could they be the backhaul vendor? I know that several of the towers that Sprint is on in Gonzales and Prairieville are EATEL towers. Those towers look bare but for the legacy Sprint panels on them. I also seem to remember some deal that EATEL had with Light Squared http://www.fiercetel...ship/2011-11-28

Anyway, just stringing together some random bits of info.

EATEL was allowed to come into EBR a year or two ago for their triple play. So glad they were allowed to even though COX and ATT were banding together to stop them. They drug the Lafayette fiber project through the courts for years. Even pulled their call center out of Lafayette over it trying to sway people. I welcome the competition any day. I am jealous over LUS though with 100/100 speeds in between customers no matter what speed package you have. And no caps.

Let's see who can find the first 800SMR active site. There might be a couple of them around the area.

Yep. A new one accepted over in New Orleans East off US 90 with 4G and 800. Maybe the 800 is broadcasting?

    • as of today band 25 being reduced on Sprint side, EARFCN 8321 is 5 MHz vs 8290 10 MHz here in LES. But when I forced roam to T-mobile it still 10 MHz band 2 EARFCN 750.
    • I sent mine back a few weeks ago. My power went out for 2 seconds and it went back to search mode. If the pebble gets disconnected from power for any amount of time, it needs to be completely re-configured. Decided it wasn't worth the hassle. I have wifi calling so I get phone calls and if I don't get texts,....depending on who it is from that's actually a bonus.
    • Just did some quick adding and 70% of the US population is in the largest 114 US MSAs. If Dish covered every MSA above 475k population (so, everything from Lafayette, LA on up), and service stopped completely outside MSA borders, they'd hit their 70%. That's while covering none of places as large as Reno, NV. Oh, and if you cover the San Juan, PR MSA, you can just hit the top 110 other MSAs, down to Pensacola, FL (so, everything with >= 500k population). Now, I fully expect Dish to omit some MSAs in the top 114 in favor of others that are closer to their footprint, or have more Boost Mobile user concentration, but this isn't a ridiculously huge lift...and is why Dish is saying they'll be building out only 15k cell sites by 2023...and they'll have help from T-Mobile as TMo casts off a bunch of redundant sites, many of which would love to immediately get a new tenant.
    • Thing is, building a coverage focused network to cover 70% of the US population using 600 isn't *that* expensive. It's the capacity play that's expensive. You need capacity if you have a ton of customers, which 10MM isn't. Alltel had 12 million customers when Verizon bought them, and covered a larger area than Dish will need to. If you spend $5 billion building a network for, say, 15 million customers, and don't have to subsidize those customers, that's not a huge outlay in the scheme of things.
