Re: Service restoration following Sandy
Still, I'm hoping that by the time Sprint gets the Network Vision project completed, the smaller, more efficient cellular gear at the base of nearly every tower will run longer on the available battery power. Also, because the gear is reportedly so much smaller now, perhaps they can place the cabinets full of gear 15 ft or so above the ground, strapped to the poles as it were. I don't know if the tower gear they are buyng is small enough to do that, but if they can do that, I'm sure that would "harden" their network that much more, making them far more resistant to flooding issues. It would be nice if their network revamp creates a more reliable, disaster-resistant network in the process.
I'm also wondering just how much of their eastern seaboard network already had the Network vision work completed prior to tropical storm Sandy.
Any techies out there who know the facts about Sprint's CDMA & iDEN networks on the east coast?
