Want your own RRU?


Recommended Posts

then all we have to do is find a panel...and a few other things, and we are good to go for my block... :P

 

same guy has a base band rack... you're getting closer to all those "things." ;-)

Is it even legal to sell that to the public being that it operates on licensed frequency? I doubt Sprint's gonna be trolling ebay looking for radios LOL

 

The frequency is not determined by the RRU, but the carrier card. The RRU may be limited to certain bands, though. Each OEM has different RRU's with different specs. However, the legality involved doesn't have to do with spectrum. I'm concerned these are stolen.

Its way to odd. He could pass off as someone in IT just selling stuff, but he has to odd of a mix kinda like a pawn shop. but a pawn shop wouldn't take the networking stuff. Like he works for places and sells stuff he gets, or from friends. I'm asking the seller for the back story on it. He's 10 mins from me. lol.

 

He got the close ups better than me. damn...

Google is my crack.... jumping site to site after finding key information on NV equipment ;) I was pleasantly surprised to see the Ebay link come up.

 

Yaaa, I think we know who the seller is... ;)

 

 

While your on google, check this out if you haven't yet.

Ericsson would actually have to bring the RRUs to my market if I were to sell them ;) but somebody forgot to start here 2 months ago.

It would actually look better if Sprint can deploy Antenna Integrated Radio like T-Mobile.

 

Sprint has too many carriers per panel. Takes more panels and more expense. I'm more concerned about performance than how nifty the panel looks.

Reminds me of the Ubiquiti Nanostation panels I use. All one piece.

 

I do understand the advantages of the rru though. It has the ability to be upgraded. Kinda like comparing the options of upgrades you can do on a laptop versus a desktop. It's the same OS experience but the laptop is smaller, cleaner, easier to install, but the desktop you can swap guts out every year if you want very easily unlike the laptop.

 

I prefer functionality over looks.... In most things. (I have a totally different formula for women)

    • The Kendall/Kerr/Gillespie PCS swap is a very nice win-win for AT&T and T-Mobile. Means both of them will have a 20x20 PCS channel, though in exchange T-Mobile goes from 10x10 to 5x5 on one of their spectrum blocks. I figure AT&T will start running n2 DSS on that channel, as they have enough customers in those areas to need the capacity, while T-Mobile will probably just run B2 LTE, as once Auction 108 finally clears they'll have plenty of n41 to play with. Guessing we'll see the non-G-block 5x5 slice running n25, but it would get aggregated with n71 rather than n41 I figure as n71 will remain 20x20 there until the STA goes away (and maybe after that, as if T-Mobile gets 700 MHz as the result of VZW buying West Central Wireless's spectrum there's no reason to run LTE in 600). Which makes me think that the next move is T-Mobile trading 700A for the 5x5 of orphaned PCS (E block) to VZW once the WCW transaction closes, as that would give VZW 20x20 PCS in the area, and would give T-Mobile 700 MHz in an area where they have none. Then VZW can either trade 700B to T-Mobile as well in exchange for the AWS I block in those areas (gives T-Mobile 10x10 B12, gives VZW 15x15 B66) or they can cut a deal with AT&T to give AT&T 10x10 B12 (AT&T has the lower C block), but I'm not sure what that deal would be if trading like for like (vs. AT&T handing VZW their upper tiny slice of B5, giving VZW 15x15 to play with in that band post-WCW-acquisition). EDIT: Just looked at AWS spectrum again, and if AT&T would rather have 10x10 B12 than 2x 10x10 AWS, they could swap AWS-D for VZW's 700B block. That would give VZW 20x20 AWS, and would take AT&T down to 10x10 + 5x5...which they'd likely be fine with as they have 20x20 PCS, small cells in the busy areas, and as a result of the transaction three 10x10 chunks of spectrum in the area below 1 GHz. And if VZW traded 700A to T-Mobile for PCS-E VZW would have 20x20 PCS as well. Which is quite useful in an area that's macro-only for VZW and likely not dense enough for proper mobile usage of CBRS or C-Band (and an area where VZW doesn't even run DSS now).
    • Yeah, $250 credit for an S22 is awful. tbf last year they didn't have solid upgrade credits until mid-late April, which is when I paid $225 to swap my S21 for an S22. Happy to wait 'til then for that kind of deal, though I'll be annoyed at battery life in the mean time.
    • Miserable upgrade credits from Samsung this year unless you want to rely on carrier financing. Sticking with S22U for a while. 
    • So far we've documented close to 100 Sprint conversions in NYC with permits still rolling in and that's only what we've identified manually. Tons of sites get converted/updated without permits so there's potentially a lot more that we haven't spotted yet. There are also dozens of sites that are still broadcasting the keep PLMN, some have been decommissioned but historically the vast majority have been converted.
