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.

    • Let me take a look tonight. 
    • Actually, I notice it says whole clusters were skipped because of invalid TAC values.  It says "File exported for inspection."  I do have Log Sites with Missing TAC checked. Robert
    • I was able to figure this out by looking at your diagnostic reports -- you're seeing n7 because your Galaxy A32 is reporting it natively as n7.. Samsung will have to fix that on their end unfortunately. Do the engineering screens report it correctly? I have an A32 test device but I have not seen it connect to n41 (or "n7") yet. If I do, I'll try to troubleshoot and nag Samsung. EDIT: After I installed the new Android 12 update, I'm now seeing the n7 bug too -- I will reach out to Samsung. They were very responsive when I reported some related glitches with the initial A32 software.
    • I appreciate the feedback today -- another new is SCP beta rolling out right now! It should resolve the force closes that started with yesterday's beta release; I also made additional improvements that hopefully(?) will reduce ongoing issues with overall app stability.
    • I'm noticing a spike in instability while driving around testing the app today also.. more freeze-ups than crashes, but it's probably all related. Hopefully any crash reports that are collected can shed some light on it for me. I'll be looking into it later tonight.
