3G to LTE IP Addressing


Recommended Posts

Will devices maintain the same IP address handing off from 3g to LTE and vice versa? One of the problems with the WiMAX implementation is different networks / different IP addresses creates a not-so-seamless experience. The goofs up streaming music/video applications for example.

I am going to go out on a limb and assume they would be much much more seamless than the handoff b/w wimax and 3G. The WiMax handoff causes problems b/c its a different company your getting data from there so hence a different IP subnet and such...Since this is Sprints LTE I would assume the handoff b/w the 2 should be much more fluid than with WiMax...

 

someone will see this and correct me to the fullest though in a little while as im sure im not completely accurate there... :)

Theoretically, there shouldn't need to be a handoff. With LTE being laid out over the entire footprint of 3G and using 800 mhz to increase the range even further.

 

If one was to be handed off from LTE to eHRPD, you are correct Sgt, it would definitely be a smooth transition compared to that of WiMax to EVDO.

To my understanding there is no hand off between WiMax and 3G connections just drop.

 

Seems that way to me. It is the reason I never turn wimax on during my train ride to work. One single tunnel causes so much frustration as it goes from 4G>no signal>3G>finally back to 4G. As I try to load webpages at various times during that period.. If I leave it on 3G only it may bounce between 3G and 1x but I never really stop transmitting.

Websites for me are worthless when I lose 3G and go to 1x. I just give up and wait for 3G to come back.

    • The S21U was very spotty with connecting to 6E. It would only see it on a router reboot. I thought it was more the router than the S21U, however my laptop would solidly connect to the 6E network, so it must have been the S21U. Since I'm on WiFi7 with the S24U, I haven't kept track of it. I will flip over and check it out later. 
    • Wi-fi 6e missing (6 GHz on one of two ultras). Perhaps coming from an app?  Wifi analyzer can see the 6ghz, just can't see them to connect.  May try wifi reset, although communications reset could have been the source of this problem.  Others have reported it, so not an isolated issue. Edit: Fixed: Rebooted into safe mode. Wifi 6e worked. Normal boot back. No wifi 6e in available nerworks.  Unistalled Asus Router app. Checked for Wifi 6e being visible in wifi available networks. Nothing. Deleted Netgear Genie app. Then saw networks. of mine I had not connected to in wifi available networks. Forgot the desired 2.4&5&6 SSID that did not show 6E. Connected to it again. 6e now works.
    • I noticed today while I was out and about in Louisville that b30 has been widened back to 10x10. They reduced it to 5x5 back in Sept 2018 presumably due to satellite radio interference. Not sure how long ago the change happened but it couldn't have been too terribly long ago. I noticed the different earfcn in the neighbor list, I don't usually see b30 as pcc much but I wonder if that will change now. I locked my phone to b30 only on my drive home from work and noticed the new(old?) earfcn on every site, so it wasn't just a 1 or 2 site fluke. It also looks like they've been doing some fiber or other cabling work around the b2/b46 small cell nodes, I wonder if they are about to start adding c-band radios to those. 
    • Should trade it for some low-band there or elsewhere. AT&T dominates lowband.    
    • I checked existing spectrum holdings and selling 5x5 PCS to each of VZW and AT&T in Kauai would get them to 20x20 apiece there, which should make them happy. In Maui it makes more sense to sell 5x5 each of PCS and AWS to get VZW 20x20 AWS and AT&T 15x15 PCS. I figure it would be a sale rather than a swap, as neither of the other two have spectrum T-Mobile would want that's high-frequency enough to avoid the spectrum screen. Honestly, T-Mobile is strong enough in Hawaii from a capacity perspective that cutting down PCS/AWS holdings won't hurt, particularly in exchange for finally unlocking 2.5 (though in Maui I saw 140 MHz n41 regularly in September if I remember correctly).
