8X8 LTE Base Stations


Recommended Posts

No new visible basestation equipment is needed for 41. All of the new gear (i.e. carrier cards) fits inside the existing cabinets.

Not sure which is best. I think general consensus is Nokia is best overall.

Thanks for the quick reply. Tech wise are they all the same, or what makes you say Nokia?

 

In the map the south looks to be Nokia. Your pictures mention Ericsson/Nokia. Does Sprint use just Nokia for LTE Band 41, or both of them in the south?

Nokia picked up Ericsson and its areas

Nokia does the 8T8R equipment in Ericsson areas, and Ericsson does the NV (dual mode B25/B26) equipment.

So what about Huawei? I know Sprint is supposed to be ripping them out due to security concerns, but someone told me that Huawei was able to upgrade all the old Clearwire WiMAX base stations to LTE. I do not beleive its 8x8 configuration, but I could be wrong. Where does Huawei with LTE fit in Sprints network since its not on the map above.

Just with Sprint, Clear used multiple vendors. In some markets Huawei upgraded sites to B41, Denver comes to mind. However, in many more markets, Samsung was the one doing the upgrade to dual mode WiMax/LTE. Clear sites, including Huawei, will be phased out over time. Single carrier Huawei sites are likely higher on the priority list to replace.

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
