Is this first link Mobilitie/Sprint?  It's very similar to a lot of Verizon small cells in the San Fernando Valley.

Should be sprint but if there is no GCI with the site then we can't be sure. And better pictures would be nice but I am not sure it is an air harmony I don't see the iBridge and this thread is about airspan products.

 

So better pic and a SCP would be the thing to prove it.

Another update for better pics of the Airharmony 1000 pico.

Nice. Are there pictures of the B26 small cells because the thread name suggests there are although I can't seem to find them?

Some phones are not able to see small cells unless they are airplane moded, specifically the LG G2 and LG V20.

You just made a good argument to NOT buy either of the phones and maybe other LG phones.

Wow B26 small cells. I thought all their small cells were B41.

Wow that should help out with really filling gaps.

A definite must once VoLTE rolls out.

Hoping for a rollout soon... simultaneous voice and data is a must for sprint to stay competitive

2018 last I heard. More towers need to be added first. Their is still to many areas with poor tower spacing.

Can you explain more? I don't see why certain devices would not be able to use a signal that should be open to all devices on the network.

Since it's new to the local RF environment, it and the rest of the enbs along with the UEs will need time to recognize and optimize handoffs to each other.

      Alpha Wireless Concealed Antenna Node
      The following consists of Alpha Wireless Concealed Antenna Node (CAN) small cell sites. 
      This is a type of stealth setup for small cells where the small cell enodeB and relay antenna is located within the stealth enclosure which also acts as the antenna. This type of site is under beta trials with positive results and is likely to expand in deployment scope nationally to fulfill municipality requests for "good looking" small cells that they would approve. 

      The finished build.

      Note the utilities attached to the pole and routed directly into the concealed antenna node where the small cell eNB and Relay backhaul antenna are located. In traditional small cell deployments, like such they are mounted on the exterior with visible wires. 
      The following is an additional example of an Alpha Wireless CAN setup. Notice the CAN's position relative to the utility pole which is at an angle. 


      Here is another one that is a standalone metal pole install. 




      Photo Credits to dkyeager and the rest of the Ohio sponsor group that helped locate these small cells.

    • Yeah that tower is by mercy. I saw yesterday a tower being put up north or Penn and Memorial. 
    • Based on the earlier public released plans and interviews, that would be true on a market by market basis as the new T-Mobile converts B41 to 5G.  What is in the latest plans is anyone's guess.  Going to 5G would provide 100MHz wide carriers which would mean 5 times faster uploads before factoring in 5G speed improvements.  Could one radio handle all of the available B41 bandwidth that Sprint has in numerous cities (up to 8 or 9 20MHz carriers)? Rumors are the Sprint Massive MIMO radios can only handle 6 carriers for a total of 120MHz, but I could be wrong.   My understanding is also that T-Mobile small cells are all fiber fed which would free up bandwidth for phones.  T-Mobile would likely go for different radios hopefully covering the full 194Mhz since they would only want 5G support.  In deals like the Shentel-nTelos and T-Mobile-Metro PCS the FCC has always had the firms either upgrade the firmware to support the new network or to give discounts for new phones.  Your voice will only be heard if you tell the FCC.  The FCC comment period is now open until early December. If T-Mobile drops CDMA, then voice coverage will also be reduced given the vast range of 1x800. (I have observed it up to 50 miles away, but that is in rare cases).  In the Shentel-nTelos merger, LTE coverage was mandated to extend fully over all nTelos 3G coverage.  Once again this is something you should ask for.  Another area of concern is VoLTE support.  I personally think Sprint will only offer it on phones it is currently selling.  Hopefully T-Mobile will go back to phones such as the LG V20 and have VoLTE support.  But always best to ask. https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DA-18-1155A1.pdf https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/search/filings?proceedings_name=18-197&sort=date_disseminated,DESC
    • Looks like Sprint and T Mobile have been active around my house.   I see at least 3 new small cells that have going up in the last 2 weeks and are active.    I can pull a band 41 signal from 2 of them... the 3rd I'm assuming is Sprint  or T-Mo?   I'm not sure what the T-Mobile small cells look like.   Its very good to see progress.    Does anyone know if the small cells can broadcast more than one frequency?  Ie... if the merger is approved and T-Mo turns band 41 into 5G... then I assume I will not be able to pull that in with my Samsung 9+? 
    • Oh and I assume much of this is was a negotiation to renew their lease.

    • That’s what happens when you have a plan and can execute on it. And have customers....
