Inside a Nextel Switch


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what I'm seeing here... it just looks like a server room that is being demolished. Is this supposed to be some sort of MSC for Nextel?

It was a Nextel MSC. But now it's going be an empty building.

What do they do with so much old equipment?  Is there anyone still doing iDEN that they can sell it to?


Some of the equipment will be sold to NII and SouthernLinc because both are still running iDEN and they need parts because I am not sure if Motorola still makes new parts. Some stuff will be sold to other iDEN providers too because iDEN is still in use in some other countries.

I would assume that finding that information now would be much more difficult. The telco switch location for my local Nextel NPA-NXXes has been relocated to our Sprint fiber POP. It used to be at a regional fiber provider's POP. I am not sure if the CLLI is different.

I know that there was a Nextel Data Center in Irvine, CA that provided the data for Northern Mexico. Not sure if that is still working but that was one of the reasons why there was always a little difference in Nextel Mexico withing Baja

    • Bloosurf is petitioning to deny T-Mobile's request for an STA specifically in their service area. https://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsEntry/attachments/attachmentViewRD.jsp;ATTACHMENTS=Ghl9knTSFp8J4nVm1P9qL4541XR1gy58whH7Yyz0MwGs037gQrNV!-2042069078!-79842837?applType=search&fileKey=1297203795&attachmentKey=21718533&attachmentInd=applAttach Short read but pretty much they're saying that T-Mobile's operations in the BRS/EBS band has been interfering with Bloosurf's LTE-based WISP network and that this has caused them harm (lose customers, etc.) They claim that allowing T-Mobile access to all of the spectrum they bought in or near Bloosurf's service area would cause even more interference. To be fair they aren't wrong. They mention that in 2021 the FCC investigated and determined that T-Mobile was operating outside of its licensed spectrum band there.
    • Really cool blog post from OpenSignal giving a broad overview over the mobile network experience in NYC.  https://www.opensignal.com/2023/03/30/localized-analysis-reveals-huge-network-experience-gaps-between-mobile-users-in-the-us
    • Bit too early to tell imo. It's good news if Dish can stop the hemorrhaging. Q3/Q4 2022 they were able to stop the hemorrhaging. Their previous 6 quarters they lost between 160k and 350k subs each. Their next report will be interesting to see how they were impacted subscriber wise due to the hack.
    • I really wish this wasn't still so shrouded in mystery.  I see these phones available new on eBay (Boost locked, but again, I don't care) for $99, and would love to buy one of those and activate a Rainbow SIM on the $100/year plan, and I can't find a good answer on whether or not that is something that can be done, even if I drove down to Richmond to try to do it.  Don't really want to be out the $100 if they won't let me do it. - Trip
