Strand Mount Gear?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the strand-mount equipment looks like?  I ask because I've got a bunch of weird GCIs in my log west of George Mason University, and I didn't spot any apparent small cells or similar.  I do see boxes on poles that do not have antennas on them, and the cables seem to go up to the lines, like this one on Google Street View.

I was wondering that also.  I know Sprint announced a strand-mount deal with Cox a while back.  And I live in a Cox service area (Parma, Ohio).  But I don't think I've seen any movement on that yet.

Here are some shots of engineering screen/strand mount in Oklahoma.

These are the ones that are deployed in the NY/NJ area via Altice. Also attached an old SCP screenshot while connected to one.IMG_20180903_092744.jpg16b7b6d25c45f4cb28bc0e38937f91ef.jpg

That GCI looks like the ones I have in my log. 

At some point my wife and I are going to walk around over there and I'm going to try to get some pictures, if I can find the things.

Can't those do more than one carrier? Only one carrier would likely be Slow.

Regardless if they are limited to single carrier they do not cover a huge area, so with Docsis backhaul they perform quite well.

Yes, in my limited testing they only covered about a block. Probably similar coverage to a magic box if it was outdoors. The ones I found were all in a residential neighborhood.

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
