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.
