Question, 5G and 8x8 antennas.

Recommended Posts

So the 5g map link that's going around  displays that 5G is available in my location in Az.  I don't have any of the 128 mimo antennas around me.  The 8x8 where added last summer.  My question is. Would they be able to split the 8x8 antennas And run 4x4 in 4g and 4x4 in 5G?  This would be a short term fix of course.

No. NR requires new M-MIMO hardware

Thanks for the answer. I was going to ask you privately but thought this was a pretty good question that others might want to know.

Yep.

As of now the only actual NR equipment are Sprints 2.5 M-mimo units and a few 28 GHz units for Verizon, tmobile, att, and the like.

    • That very same crane from the previous page was used this past two days in Bloomington at a site off of 94th and Penn that has a Sprint site but the antenna on top of it is not (I thought it was T-Mobile), something horrible must have happened because they took the old antenna completely off the top of the mast and set it on the tarmac at the base of the antenna, replaced the RRUs, the cabinet was opened and literally everything inside it appeared to be replaced, then the antenna at the top was replaced by Monday morning and they were literally working all day sunday on it.  The nearest I can think is the site above the Sprint antennas must have sustained lightning damage.  I have never seen such extensive work on a cell site taking place on a sunday literally going from before 8 in the morning until well after 8 at night.  I have extensive pictures.   It appears the Sprint site was tangentially involved because there is still equipment and additional guy wiring in place and cabling going to parts of the site including the Sprint cabinets.  Most curious to say the least.  It almost looks like power was prevented from going to the site.

    • As a trader the market chatter is that an announcement could come as soon as tomorrow if not by then by end of week. 
    • USCC should count as same coverage as being on Sprint, the R is for roaming into 1X not LTE. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
