GMO Site Discussion (Ground Mount Option)


Recommended Posts

any one know if GMO sites able to do 10x10 or even a 2nd carrier or does it all depend on the equipment?

The radios could do it, I believe GMOs get new cabinets so it should support new network cards, I don't know about the panels though.

10x10 or 2nd carrier is dependent on local spectrum holdings, hardware should be fine.

Is Sprint not using Mobilitie for NYC? Both of those names are in house employees.

 

 

These are mini macro conversions. So it would make sense to have Sprint's guy's handle this.

 

Clear site conversions, so no these are not Mobilite. They were already in place. Mobilite will be doing the new sites that come next.

We have a number of GMO LTE sites around in Missouri and Kansas, none of them have a second carrier. The same goes for the few GMO LTE sites that have gone live in the Samsung market of Nebraska/Iowa. Every other full build site has the second carrier live, and has had it for several months, but the GMOs do not. So far the evidence says GMOs will not have the second carrier.

GMOs cannot do a second carrier or 10x10 in Samsung markets. Confirmed by a Samsung engineer.

I beg to differ, we have a gmo in the Cincinnati market that definitely is broadcasting 10x10

If I'm not mistaken, a GMO site has updated base stations and the RRU mounted next to the base station, rather than up near the antenna panel. If so, as long as the panel has 2T2R ports for 1.9, and the proper card is in the BTS, it should support 10x10 LTE.

It does support it, not should.

Actually, it looks like there are only two lines going out of the RRUs. So why are there four input lines on those combiners?

Edit: it just occurred to me that they may be using the combiners as splice points for the old coax to new coax. Is that a thing that happens?

 

:pinch:

According to my engineer, most GMOs in Seattle use RF combiners which limit the B25 bandwidth to 5x5.

 

Yep. Observe nowherelaters GMO site setup. 

 

Notice those RF combiners were bypassed and they ran the coax directly into the RRUs.

Please show these to your engineer and ask him how.

So I just looked real closely and realized the combiners aren't connected to anything. I feel dumb now.

 

So to clarify, some RRUs can do MIMO LTE+CDMA over just two coax lines?

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
