Backhaul & ping


Recommended Posts

Sprint lte seems to have a slightly higher ping than all the other carriers could this be a result of backhaul, or could it be a result of something can someone explain?

It might be something in your area with traffic routing. In Syracuse, Sprint has better ping times than AT&T or Verizon. Usually 20-50 ms on Sprint vs 50-100 ms on the others.

I normally may get 90 ms on B26. Around the same on B25 too.

i usually get around 100 on LTE while using sprint.  But it really doesnt make much a difference.  But I have been averaging about 150 to 210ms on Clear sites.

Ping is highly variable on all providers. It depends on the air link saturation, backhaul type, backhaul burden, LTE data core burden and LTE data core connection to the internet. As well as changes in dynamic routing.

 

In some places and in some scenarios, Sprint will be highest and Sprint will be lowest. No one can say Sprint has the worst ping of all providers, but you may be able to say in your observances that Sprint has the highest pings that you've seen.

 

If Sprint is the worst now, that can easily change. Because Sprint uses dynaming routing and dynamic LTE core load balancing. Your sites may be connecting to a more distant LTE core for a time, because the default core for your sites may be undergoing work. We see this all the time. And it will continue until NV upgrades at switches and cores are complete.

Would backhaul have any effect on outgoing calls being delayed. This seems to happen when I'm connected to lte.

Backhaul? Not likely.

Outgoing call setup delays? If a tri band device, that is an e/CSFB effect.

is this a normal problem that will continue, or something that can and will be corrected?

Will you provide a link that explains "e/CSFB effects"

It's a normal problem, but will go away when VoLTE happens. e/CSFB is the way tri-band phones currently make calls. Tri-band phones only have 1 antenna, while single band phones had 2. Single band phones are always connected to 1x/EVDO and LTE at the same time. Tri-band phones are only connected to LTE or 1x/EVDO, never both at the same time. So, when you make a call while on LTE, your tri-band phone has to disconnect from LTE and connect to 1x/EVDO. This sometimes takes a few extra seconds.

 

But remember, this will no longer be an issue when VoLTE is activated. :)

I think you guys are overstating the issue.  Is sometimes 5-10 seconds really a "problem"?

5 to 10 seconds isn't a problem, but often I run into anything between 20 and 30 seconds. This happens on 2 different sites that I've found.

Believe it or not, people still make phone calls, and if you have one tower serving a ton of people, the voice carriers can get loaded up making your outbound calls take a little longer to connect.

As a owner of a business, I use 3000 plus minutes per month.

That is esfb issue. It has happened to me so annoying just looking at my nexus 5 says calling for like 15 seconds.  Miss incoming calls also.  Call sprint itll be fixed soon.

    • It’s a neat and seemingly valid / effective strategy that, at least from my understanding, is only really used by VZW
    • Those are usually left over from the initial AWS deployment, so all run B13/B66 with support for BC0/BC1 (although that’s been shut off on most sites). No NR. Sites with the later Ericsson radios got an OTA update and broadcast B2. On those sites, a B5 OTA update was also available (and tested), but ultimately rolled back. Putting up all that power/spectrum severely degraded the B13 output.  The site atop Crystal Mountain is another story and uses the same setup as the site on the ridge near Neilton. These antennas were selected for their vertical beamwidth. Most modern directional antennas have small vertical beamwidths and would require extreme downtilt to cover the road next to a steep ridge. Thus, they would have a severely limited coverage footprint beyond the road. Omnis can be a better choice in these instances, especially when there’s LoS to the coverage objective (since they’ll generally have lower gain figures). Omnis also don’t run in to the horizontal sector edge problem, which can be difficult to optimize for with directional antennas that have complex or irregular 3D gain profiles. That’s why on a lot of sites on mountains, you’ll see wider antennas used. For example, the Verizon site on Joyce Ridge has three sectors with 80-degree HBW antennas. 
    • Do you know what RAN is behind those Omni's? LTE (bands?) are they pushing any NR through them? Very curious   edit: I guess I could check cellmapper etc but you might know more nuance!
    • N41 here has been expanded from 140Mhz to 180Mhz.  Speeds seem the same so they just need to work on backhaul
    • I noticed today that T-mobile has shut of B41 LTE in the Louisville area and widened the 2nd n41 carrier to 80MHz. That just leaves them with 5x5 B12, 10x10 B2, and two 10x10 B66 carriers on LTE, everything else is in NR (besides their 2G network). They have 20x20 n71, 20x20 n25, 5x5 n25, and 180MHz n41.
