Other Carriers and RRUs


Recommended Posts

I know I've heard mention that Verizon was going back and installing RRUs in some markets, other than that I was under the impression that Sprint/Clearwire was the only ones so far installing RRUs mounted up with the panel.

 

I was out checking towers for upgrades last night and found these panels with what looks like RRUs installed behind them. They don't look like the Samsung equipment Sprint is installing. Anyone have any guesses on whose they are?

Also where i took these pictures they are re-painting the water tower, they have setup a temporary tower but it only has 1 set of panels on it (there are multiple carriers on the water tower), can anyone tell whose they are?

and just for fun here is a pic of one of the Clearwire WiMax protection sites around here :)

thanks for the replies, that would be the first tmobile gear i've seen with RRU's, does that mean they have LTE on that tower?

 

any ideas on the panels on the "temp" tower?

T-mobile is deploying Ericsson RRU04's,RRU11's, and RRU12s which are the same  RRUs as Sprint / Tmobile / ATT with their old antennas.

Those little boxes are too small to be RRUs.  I bet those are diplexers.  Two bands are diplexed at the bottom of the site into one cable, then diplexed out again at the top back to two cables for each side of the antenna.

Here's a cool video of new panels being out up, thought I'd share. These guys seem to work well. http://youtu.be/asp5nzKB8F8

 

Can't say that I've seen anyone eyeball the azimuth from the ground...  no wonder why many of these sites are messed up.  There's a reason why the RF engineer wants the antenna pointed at 30 degrees and not 25 degrees.  Impossible to eyeball.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Eyeing the azimuth from 200' up?? That can't be precise. No wonder a lot of these installs are botched and have to be re-adjusted. Wow.

 

Don't get me wrong though, I have a very healthy respect for what those tower workers do and how dangerous it is for them.

 

At least those guys are safety tied most of the time.

 

Unlike these guys!!!!!

    • I found some automated crash reports from a Motorola Ace.. not sure if they were from you or not, but they are bizarre. The error is a security exception claiming "insufficient location permissions" but the triggering code is the block that runs once location permissions are granted. 🤷‍♂️ EDIT: I'm guessing they are from you. The timestamps were from 5-10 minutes before your post, and it's on two identical devices.
    • Looks like T-Mobile just got an opportunity to expand n41 in Shentel-land https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/shentel-sell-its-25-ghz-spectrum-assets
    • Almost at 76% licenses "sold" at $160 million. Like watching paint dry.  Will check again in a few days. 
    • I guess we'll see how many takers there are for this: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-08-04/dish-nears-launch-of-mobile-service-taking-on-at-t-and-verizon One early drawback to the Boost Infinite service is that, for now, subscribers will need to buy a $900 Motorola Edge+ phone to get connected to Dish’s new network. More phones that are compatible with the system are expected in the third quarter, Dish told analysts Wednesday. Registration Site: https://www.boostinfinite.com I remember when Virgin Mobile went iPhone-only: https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/21/virgin-mobile-goes-iphone-only-offers-a-year-of-service-for-1/ That didn't go so well.
    • Hey Mike    Ya I was the one that brought the issue to your attn for the color thing on my 6T like 3-4 years ago   that was fixed after like 6 months  and I never had any issues with that anymore till the 1st  Android/OxygenOS 12 update but it hasn't done that anymore (that i've seen lately)   it just doesn't give me the  signal strength much anymore  it'll show it for like 5 mins then  switch to  "--"  and stay that way  Sometimes if I close it out and reopen it  it'll come back (tho the icon is delayed showing up for like a min  or so when it used to show up instantly) but after a few mins it's back to showing "--" again and other times it'll just come back to the "--"
