So bordom has set in, Lets play Name these Panels


Recommended Posts

I took a few pictures of two towers side by side near my work that i see every morning when I stop at the Valero, I believe the tower with the single set of panels is owned by T-Mobile and the tower with way to much stuff on it is owned by Clearwire.

 

I believe what im looking at is T-Mobiles 4g HSPA+ Panels on the single tower. On the other tower Im completely lost.

 

My question is one of these towers is slated to recieve LTE, My question is what should i look for when they start with the upgrades ? Also this tower is * for those who have access to the maps.

I was under the impression that the higher the frequency the larger the panel ? If not, i stand corrected.

 

The opposite is generally true but not always.

 

The reason is that wavelength is inversely proportional to frequency.

Just the opposite. The lower the frequency, the longer the wavelength, the larger the panel.

Roger that, I donno why when i was viewing this video on SBASite.com i thought it was the other way around. Incase anybody novice wants to check it out, its a very nice overview video of how a Site is managed with alittle technical info as well. http://ir.sbasite.com/#

^ ATT.

Why would you think that?

 

There are only 4 outputs on the bottom of the panel with a single RRU, that screams AT&T from all of the pictures in the how to spot a panel thread. I thought the Sprint NV panels had 6 outputs and 3 RRUs per sector.

Some have 4 RRU's.

    • More on Super Bowl preparations here: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl Verizon: That said, Verizon will have some hefty gear on hand if it needs to use it, like THOR, the Tactical Humanitarian Operations Response vehicle, as well as THOR’s Hammer and the Mobile Utility Technology Transport (MUTT) police cruiser. Very cool… AT&T: Like Verizon, AT&T is bringing all the tools at its disposal to serve fans and public safety customers during the big game. That includes a flying cell on wheels (COW) and a robotic dog.   There’s a ton of detail on AT&T’s network build here. Great read!
    • This means a significant number of people feel Dish will never pay them back. Dish should have borrowed more money sooner at lower rates.  T-Mobile has been much smarter at this during this merger period.
    • Dang.  Is there I way we can directly get in on that for the next one if Dish is gonna be paying 11.75%?
    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
