Because you're all much smarter than I am... (network related)


Recommended Posts

We manage a decent sized account in Buffalo, NY that has been having voice/data issues since before the upgrades began. 

 

Recently one of the engineers stated that a "back haul circuit" was needed to resolve the issue. 

 

I do product knowledge (play with phone features) and have zero knowledge of advanced network stuffs. Anyone know what he is talking about? Is this an actual device/system?

Backhaul is the physical network (Internet) connection which connects the cell sites to the Sprint network to carry all the traffic. The more the backhaul, the faster the connections.

Traditionally backhaul brings information from the swith to the tower, right? 

 

Seems this gentlemen is inferring that they can bring the service directly into the area where the offices are.

They can do that as well. There are offices which have Sprint CNS (Custom Network Solutions) installations, so the employees all get optimal service. Is the customer located in a particular area or just a building?

Backhaul can be an issue, but a "hollaback" might make you forget all of those problems...

 

 

:P

The issue is with the in-building coverage. 

 

In my head I see a truck backing up to the office with a giant Airave on it... 

 

Ah, so it depends on the install they have/want.

Here is a nice video from Chad Townes, with AT&T's Distributed Antenna Solution Group.  Talks about the neutral host system that was installed at the Superdome.  Hopefully it helps with your understanding of the solution.

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      I figured since Verizon's 5G-NR network officially launched it would make sense for there to be a thread for it.

      With Todays announcement that T-Mobile and Sprint are merging, and the announcement of the T-Mobile Sprint Roaming deal that will survive and will last for four years regardless if the merger is completed or not, which is effect immediately as stated in the conference call and the slides made available. So I thought I'd create this to see if anyone has been able to use their Sprint device on T-Mobile roaming yet. And of course if not, once you do, come back here and say you have. Personally I'm not bothering with anything until after the coverage map is updated again, hopefully to reflect the T-Mobile roaming. And of course if you are able to roam onto T-Mobile what kind of speeds are you pulling, and on what device.
      Also for those that are unaware, the T-Mobile Sprint Roaming agreement that was announced as part of todays merger announcement is a roaming agreement for Sprint customers to roam onto T-Mobile for 4 years and takes affect immediately, yes right now, regardless if the merger completes or not. Surely it's a stepping stone to integrating the networks by getting Sprint devices that are capable, which according to the conference call is 20 Million Sprint devices ready to be used on the T-Mobile network full time once deal is approved by the regulators and finally completed.
