At first, VoLTE will be used to deliver "Rich Communications Services" (which look like something similar to what Voice over IP/Video over IP outfits offer today) rather than completely replacing narrowband voice. It will be awhile before Verizon is willing to commit to that, due in part to LTE outages in late 2011.
On the flip side is MetroPC, which has pushed VoLTE as hard as it could.
Then there's Sprint, which will stick to voice over 1x for the foreseeable future, but routes Direct Connect over IP. Sprint's latest DC incarnation seems quite similar to one facet of RCS over LTE.
Seeing all the tweets from John Saw about all the Massive MIMO upgrades in all these cities, it has me curious if any of that is going on in this market? Is sprint aggressively doing upgrades in our market?
This confusion could be eliminatedby adding: If PCI 450 or greater then SC#2 else MM#2.
The upper limit is MagicBoxes starting at PCI 488 (which matches our market sheets) as mentioned here:
Hopefully 5G has more PCIs available.
