    13,000 Students need a LTE EBS network

    Yes! I love the treasures we have on this site. Expanding access is one of the many reasons I am intrigued by cellular. As an enthusiast and certified monopoly cable hater, we have cellular backhaul at our home we built ourselves. Will check in later after work w more. You have a project on your hands a few of us dream about fren.

    That looks like a MatSing ball fren, quite a find! You are seeing lots of sectors because this baby has LOTS of sectors. All the sectors actually.
  3. Do we have a count for 128 element massive Mimo sites yet out in the wild? I see so much about permitting and 16 port vs 8 port and multiple descriptions of Mimo, so I haven't been able to keep up.
  4. Starting a spot to post mods or builds, connected stuffs, antennetry, relay magic and other fun fixes. I'll begin; Our latest weekend adventure is a box with failover/load balance between 2 LTE radios, one cat 7 at 2x1, the other cat 12 at 2x2 mimo. This 3+2x carrier aggregation combo could peak at 900mb p/s down by 225 up at the radios. All domestic ?? bands including LAA@5GHz and CBRS, except band 71. Input side is all set. They feed into a router that will soon; tx AC Wifi on 2.4/5GHz and gsm on 900MHz. USB to ethernet bus for ~330mb p/s throughput over Ethernet. 5v means you can pretty much use this box anywhere. Has 2 more USB port for maybe forced air, another radio or peripherals. Bonus PoE too. Working out the kinks on software this week for the output side. Please share your builds, LTE solutions and especially your ideas. I have like 5 more variants going so I will share as I get through projects. Have a great week everyone.

    I have never really built a tower, so this should be fun. Trying to incorporate it into some sturdy outdoor upgrades. I knew once I started punching holes, drilling and running wires we were going to eventually have to learn how to build stuff too. While this unit is indoors, we are receiving a bit better throughput, lower pings and more stable speeds than using the roof mounted antenna via 25ft of LMR 400 coax. So far this is great, 2 years ago I was paying the CableCo 90 bucks a month for less then this. They can keep it.

    Indeed! Great find.

    What a mess! Gonna detach all those WiFi antenna after we get it outside and add access points. Put some directionals on the second router so it could connect, will end up using the ones on the roof since they are tied in with coax already. Looks pretty good for a test setup. Will look great on a proper pole with a flag. This project is chugging along nicely. Have a great weekend everyone.

    Hey folks, we have been working on Christmas and work projects but just had to update what we got started on. We are working on our freedom tower flagtenna pole test kit to try out back. That antenna has been serving us good for about a year in the lab so we decided to go PoE and put the router right behind the antenna like the big ones are. Why not put it in a big box that we can later stuff two in at that? Well our PoE unit injects the wattage but doesn't like sending the data back down the pipe so a new one will be here after the holidays. Gotta try and seat this sweet heat sink properly. Gonna be toasty up there. Ordered some nice din rails and cables to tighten the box in snug. It is cozy with some heavy adhesive and elastic for a couple hours while we move around routerboardetry and later cable management. Have a great week everyone.

    Just when I figure out how to use something Google starts killing it.

    Indeed, I hope so too.

    Lolol ethernet connectivity will probably come with the next hardware version.
  13. I keep a band 46 capable router in the car for just such occasions.

    I got a version 2, I would break this one down but is just a fancy screen compared to the first one right? Ordered return and the Gold Edition™. I will have to wait a couple weeks for travel, but I will do a holiday teardown when I get back if no one beats me to it.

    Yes, call back. This happened to me and a Gen2 showed up.

    Note 9 rumor thread.

    This could unironically only happen to user @danlodish345 Glad you are ok man! This is a pretty impressive yet unique set of events leading to what looks like a smoldering handset. Call Samsung my dude and see if they'll give you some kind of exchange for finding out what it takes to vampire slay a phone.

    AT&T LTE and Network Discussion

    Our area is actually sold under an old Cingular affiliate, Horry Telephone Cooperative. We have a pair of Corporate stores in town for wireless subscribers and whatever media ATT bought last week. HTC is the fiber and backbone provider for our area. They were slow to roll out HSPA here, so ATT made a big push a couple years ago in the area to update base stations. It seems to have worked out; updating to bands 2/30 in an overlay went smooth right after the 2g shutdown. It looks like those will be touched again with band 14, and 30 will now be coming to most sites. Bands 4/12 are active on every site. Have you seen any ATT small cells? I haven't yet outside of COWs.

    H1900 5MHz here, everything else is LTE. No band 5 license in our area.

    AT&T LTE and Network Discussion

    At our location we have 10MHz band 30, 10 and 5MHz^2 band 4, 15MHz band 2, 10MHz band 12 active on the network; I see firstnet in the network scan but won't have a band 14 enabled radio for a month or so. We have a two routers with detailed logging enabled, one is stationary and one is mobile. How should we best contribute data to this thread?
  21. No in the south east US, It is good now. Tmobile roaming for sure is your culprit, as you saw with band 2. It is a tower or cluster update. Takes time to get through the tubes.
  22. Experienced this same thing for two weeks here while it rolled out. Good luck!
