Converted(iDen to CDMA) site Los Angeles,CA


Recommended Posts

Robert, Here you have some pictures of the converted(iDen to CDMA) site in the neighborhood of South Central, Los Angeles, CA. It looks identical to the picture I saw on google maps, same panels. Maybe the changed the ground base or...dunno. Take a look at it

The panels are different and there are less of them on each sector. But I do not see any RRU's. But approx. 5% of sites will not get RRU's if the structure cannot support them. I'm not sure what to make of this. Thanks for the photos.

Interesting - think that the wood pool doesn't support any additional weight/structural mass on it?

yup.there is not any RRU at all and the panels are not NV..Your welcome Robert

yup.its a pretty simple wood pool

Is this in Inglewood? Because in South Central, "The Wood" means Inglewood.

This maybe what I'm seeing here in Florida I have come across a few sites that are marked to have NV/LTE done but it's not a Sprint site its a Nextel site

Except the sites you're seeing are actually upgraded to NV, no?

What? All sites to date in our updates have come from our existing CDMA sites database. This is the first one that was previously a Nextel only site. I had to move it from Nextel database to the NV database.

This is the old iDEN site photo from Google Maps. There were four panels per sector and these are definitely different panels. This site has definitely been upgraded.

 

RayLuis, did you run any performance testing while there or cycle to try to get LTE?

 

On another note, sites that do not get RRU's also will not get 800 deployments. No CDMA 800 nor LTE 800.

Which sites have we reported are upgraded in Florida that used to be Nextel only sites?

Yeah Robert..speeds were close to 1Mbps down and between 1 and 1.10 Mbps up.The Pings were high thought...almost 500ms

Ah, good find! Is it possible these sites were converted using legacy hardware? It certainly looks like legacy panels rather than NV ones in the pics which were posted of the tower now.

They look brand new white and curved, unlike any legacy panels I've ever seen. Its possible that panels with ground based radios are a little different than RRU panels. They may not be able to handle as many carriers. That might be why there are three panels in a sector. Most NV sites have one NV panel per sector.

Regardless the answer' date=' I'm glad a Nextel site got converted. Is this in a gap in coverage? Or was this picked to add capacity?[/quote']

 

The nearest site is not but 12 blocks away. Probably for capacity.

    • T-Mobile wins more 5G spectrum over AT&T's objections So now it's official?
    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
