NV-> Legacy handoffs


Recommended Posts

I know there was a major issue in Chicago with handoffs between legacy Motorola sites and Samsung NV sites. Have their been any other reports of vendor to vendor equipment issues? I'm having a very consistent hard handoff/dropped call issue between a loan, active NV/LTE tower and the next legacy tower when driving on the freeway, this happens to be a NV Samsung to either Nortel or Lucent legacy site. I'm not sure on the exact vendor of the legacy site because it is right on a border area for vendors.

 

My note 2 will hang on to the NV tower until I'm within site of the legacy tower, but the call starts to drop 3 or 4 words, then it's gone. A few seconds later, the legacy tower picks up and I have to call again.

Ya, Theres was a big articles a good 5 months back. Search the wall and you should find it. Chicago is a legacy Motorola network and While NV deployment it was found that Samsung <> Legacy Motorola network while on the same channel will more or less drop the call.

Between Grand Rapids, MI and Lansing, MI. LTE site is in Portland, Knox Rd & I-96 near exit 76. Legacy site is near Eagle, Hinman Rd & 96 near exit 84.

Did you read my post? I know of the issue in Chicago, my issue is in a different market with different vendors...

I only remember the LTE from Sunday, it was -122ish when the call dropped. I didn't notice the 1x strength.

I think this is what you are talking about' date=' read his post:

That is what is happening, but I'm only getting a single drop, because my call originates on a NV tower.

As LTE/NV has lit up across Michigan, I've noticed a significant increase of customers complaining of dropped and blocked calls. Correlation likely.

Samsung to legacy Ericsson(Nortel) seems to be working well. I was on site at the first IVHHO handoff test in NWPA and it worked better than I had expected. Motorola does not play well with others, it's not just Samsung.

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
