current LTE towers question


Recommended Posts

I haven't seen any evidence of this in my market. Set to the RF design specs as close as the excellent or drunk techs can get it, fire it up, and move to the next. There's no time to go back and toy with something you are not going to get more money out of.

I thought this was the reason for the Antennas being remote controllable....

makes sense. LOL thats too funny. but i was just curious, so im assuming once its fired up and has the LTE/3G upgrades its good to go and wont be messed around with again? i mean unless for repairs and things like that.

I have only been near two towers that have been upgraded. I don't have an LTE phone yet, so my experience is with the 3G side. So far, both towers got worse for a few days after being upgraded. I would roam off and on, get really erratic signals and just a lot of network busy or dropped calls. After a week or so, it then gets solid and life moves on. The tower at my house is 3G/4G accepted and it is solid as death, but next to my work is just 4G accepted and my 3G is a little worse on the upload side with my signal jumping around between ~-79 and -103. I am also in an Ericsson market.

I have noticed that in my market, the towers take about 3-4 days to work correctly after accepted. I have not noticed any long term changes that are taking place. I am in an Ericsson market.

That's been a trend that comes and goes for us as well with Ericsson. Sometimes it is working the day before acceptance and sometimes it is on a couple days after.

Fine tuning takes weeks, but isn't like a constant effort.  Some of it is automated.  Radio power levels and antenna element angles can be adjusted electronically, without service calls.  Traffic management and allocation of backhaul bandwidth is now dynamic.  This modern network equipment is even aware of its surroundings, allowing automatic mitigation of interference through neighbor-negotiated frequency hopping patterns, power output levels, and antenna angles.

    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
