Nextel Towers


Recommended Posts

I decided to start a new thread why are Nextel towers installing microwave dishes? And 12 antennas? This is the Connecticut page http://www.ct.gov/cs...Q=248312=| Click on the Database of CSC-Approved Telecommunications Sites

 

I am not sure what you are talking about. That database includes lots of Nextel iDEN sites with 12 panels. But did you bother to check the dates on those site installs? They are are all 5-15 years old.

Using 12 panels? Not a chance.

Sprint has 9 panels currently that doesn't support that much lol. I know the new ones are multiband but still 3? Seems a little underkill

With multiple band software defined radios, you don't need as many panels. Network Vision is far more efficient in that regard.

I believe the old equipment only supported one band per panel, and only a couple of carriers each.

 

The new equipment is MUCH more capable than the old equipment. A single panel is capable of attaching multiple RRUs (6 I think) and those can independently support different bands within the spectrum available and multiple technologies (1xRTT/EvDO/LTE) out of the same panel.

With Nextel Going out will sprint relocate there new panels up higher to nextels position?

 

Maybe on some sites they will. I hope they can on as many as possible, but don't get your hopes up.

Probably not unless it was in the RF design. Going up higher isn't always a good thing.

That's correct. Higher is not better. It's only higher. In many places, especially in small cells and urban locations, going higher would make no difference. It would just be a waste of money.

    • 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.
