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.

    • I signed up for Sprint's unlimited kickstart plan and noticed there is a lot of "extended network" coverage near me. Today was the first chance I had to test it when I left native coverage. It switches to US Cellular but all I got was the R indicator on my phone. Same indicator when it switches to Verizon. I have my settings as Automatic for network instead of Home only. I also have data roaming turned off. Basically my question is, how can I know when I am on extended network instead of roaming? Most of the coverage west of me shows extended network with very little roaming areas. I don't want to get charged for roaming on accident. 
    • I say what a wase to design turn to fail in 5 years instead of design then to last for a long time better for environment
    • Nice set of CA combos! I'm guessing it's 2x2 only right? I'm waiting for a 4x4 modem with those CA combos or better (4x+ CA) to be more future proofed, since the AT&T tower I'm using now doesn't have 4x4 yet or even B4/66 (adjacent ones do). I'm just not sure how to orient the antennas for 4x4... Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
    • They're in a low enough orbit that they should burn up within a year or two I think if they don't boost their altitude. They're designed to deorbit quickly upon failure. And I believe they're also designed to only last like 5 years before needing replaced due to running out of fuel? At least SpaceX's are. They said they will have to continuingly replace them. So space junk shouldn't be a problem, unless they collide at enough velocity that some pieces are ejected to a higher orbit. But I think studied were performed to show the risk of this is minimal. The bigger issue I believe would be its effect on Earth based visual astronomy (see Starlink "train"). Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
    • A VPN will skew the results. You should not have a VPN on whole doing speed test mapping. VoLTE will not matter, they operate on different EUTRA sessions https://s4gru.com/entry/439-sprints-casting-call-of-voice-over-actors-an-in-depth-analysis-of-volte-calling-and-vowifi/ it shouldn't even be able to tell that you have VoLTE on. That being said, if you're on an active VoLTE call, then that may affect things. Recently, Sprint started preferring dropping to band 26 during tower handoffs while on a VoLTE call. So a call may start out on B41, but if you're moving, when it hands off to the next tower it often switches to B26. This improves VoLTE performance and quality, but will result in slower data speeds and showing B26 available instead of b25 or b41 in your mapping. Congestion on B26 has no effect at all on VoLTE calls, but will be reflected in speed tests performed while on the call   Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
