The classic Elliott wave came to fruition today around the same time the FOMC meeting took place. Of course the fundamental practitioners will preach the market went up because the Fed made this decision or that decision. The Elliott wave practitioner will say this move was set in stone but the timing cant be any less perfect. As you can see in the image below that we were doing sideways price action in 4th wave and we have set up to move in the 4th to 5 of (3).
When Sprint and T-Mobile want to merge together to compete against Verizon and At&T is not just because credit is easy commodity these days, although it is definitely a nice to have for a merger of this size. If you look at the maps below, courtesy Whistleout
Look at Sprint and T-mobile’s coverage as compared to Verizon and AT&T coverage. The AT&T 4G coverage is not as thorough as the Verizon’s in pasts of the country but it is a close 2nd in the US. The investment required to erect cell sites and the time it takes to broker or buy land to install is a very time consuming endeavor that plans has to be set in motion well in advance of 2-3 years. Such daunting task of maneuvering the legal and PR process of getting permits from the local government office or a private owner in some instances is something only a very structured organization can handle. Even if you have the resources, the time taken alone makes sense to buy competition and compete with bigger network coverage. Yes, offering a cheap phone plan like Sprint and T-mobile get the customers in to the store but when that customer experience bad reception and dropped calls in more then acceptable situations, it turns them off and you would have probably done more damage having them as customers now then not have had them as your customer.
Once a phone user leaves you for bad reception and goes to another carrier to only find out how diverse the coverage area is, they are not coming back again, even when you have even better coverage then the ones they are with right now. The cost of coverage makes more sense to the consumer now that they are willing to pay what ever the competition might charge them for.
Cell information is a different estimation, and a year ago Verizon Wireless, AT&T and Sprint said a joined aggregate of 6.56 TB was utilized on amusement day in, and around, the University of Phoenix Stadium where the Super Bowl was held.
The internal distributed antenna system (iDAS) and the external distributed antenna system (oDAS)are worked by an outsider at Levi’s Stadium, and AT&T has joined that DAS, said Paula Doublin, associate VP of radio wire arrangements, DAS and small cells for AT&T.
“This end of the week is truly interesting in the way that it’s basically two urban areas 37 miles separated with real exercises going ahead in both urban communities, now and again in the meantime. There’s a ton obviously occurring there at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, and you must deal with the stadium itself and the different lodgings on the grounds that the NFL has base camp there and group inns and the fan encounter going ahead around the stadium in Santa Clara and San Jose itself,” Doublin said.
Indeed, even the airplane terminals have had their systems enhanced, she said. “We have San Francisco and San Jose and we have Oakland. For every one of the three of those we did some new forms and put DAS there, we joined a few DAS, and we upgraded our ability a considerable amount in every one of them. At that point we took ourselves 37 miles away in San Francisco and around the Moscone Center and the wharfs for the fan involvement with Super Bowl City,” she said.
There were 75 isolate extends as a feature of the arrangement, and AT&T introduced simply over $25 million in new gear to bolster the Super Bowl and improve the cell organize. This has brought about around 150% more LTE limit than was conveyed amid the general 2015 football season at the stadium, with three LTE bearers, Doublin said. By and large, AT&T has burned through $100 million in the previous year to overhaul its system in the Bay Area.
“The truly decent thing about this is most of the ventures that we’ve made and the systems that we’ve assembled will remain. They will keep on serving day over day and year over year. That is the genuine advantage to urban communities and groups that host these huge sorts of occasions,” she said.
Verizon said in a public statement that it burned through $70 million to make upgrades for the Super Bowl to dramatically multiply its 4G LTE remote information organize limit in the zone.
To the extent the genuine DAS limit goes, there are 25 conventional cell destinations inside the gear at Levi’s Stadium, with 525 reception apparatuses all through the stadium and 60 miles of either fiber or coaxial link entwining it all. “That is all that could possibly be needed scope and ability to cover the whole city of Santa Clara itself,” Doublin said.
Voice calling over mobile networks has been around for quite a while, so why is there such a great amount of exchange in the business around voice over Wi-Fi? The big manage VoWi-Fi is that it’s quick turning into a basic tool in administrators’ arsenal for both link and cell administrators alike. It has moved from a pleasant to have status to being viewed as a need by a few administrators – yet why?
VoWi-Fi has made an outlook change in the way mobile operators can give indoor voice scope. Administrators can counterbalance spotty cell in-home by running voice over Wi-Fi. Better indoor scope implies enhanced call culmination rates and call quality in the home, encouraging a superior client encounter and expanding client maintenance.
There are different advantages for versatile bearers as well. Wi-Fi has been utilized by versatile administrators to offload information when clients have Wi-Fi get to. Offloading lessens the measure of information being carried on cell groups, liberating transfer speed for different clients. With VoWi-Fi, the voice will comparatively be offloaded onto Wi-Fi systems, additionally restoring cell limit.
VoWi-Fi turns out to be significantly more basic for link administrators. For them, it’s the principle course, not a titbit or side dish. These organizations are progressively looking to get into the portable remote business – beginning with Wi-Fi in the home and extending remotely with open-air get to focused, filling in crevices in wide-zone scope with versatile virtual system administrator connections. It’s basically an “into-out” technique. This is the universe of administrator gave VoWi-Fi, unique in relation to voice-over-IP applications that have been around for some time –, for example, Skype, Viber, WhatsApp and so forth. While these applications keep running over-the-top and empower calling by means of dealers incorporated with the applications, administrator gave VoWi-Fi can utilize the local dealer incorporated with the cell phone, giving the client a predictable look-and-feel whether making a bring over a phone organize or over Wi-Fi. Calls are additionally made utilizing clients’ consistent cell phone numbers instead of an application particular client id.
The scope is the other represents the moment of truth variable. On the off chance that the calling gadget is in a part of the house that sees a feeble Wi-Fi motion from the get to the point, voice quality will be influenced. Furthermore, the scope circumstance changes as the client move around the house, muddling the issue advance. There’s no reason for having an unmistakable Wi-Fi channel on the off chance that you don’t have the scope to get to the limit.
Surmounting these issues will require wise radio recurrence administration arrangements that augment the nature of administrations, for example, VoWi-Fi. The capacity to move gets too focused and customer gadgets to cleaner directs despite clog or obstruction gets to be distinctly basic. It resembles transforming from the swarmed right path on a thruway to a less congested center path. Sharp utilization of groups and administration of energy to farthest point impedance are as imperative.
Effortlessness has been the name of the Wi-Fi amusement from its absolute starting point. From the start, Wi-Fi has been intended for minimal effort, lightweight operation, straightforward interoperability and simplicity of sending. It has been planned with availability as the essential objective. Wi-Fi doesn’t intrinsically accompany antenna to oversee blockage, obstruction, and scope, which implies radio administration arrangements should come in “behind the back of Wi-Fi” to guarantee administrations like VoWi-Fi function admirably.

On taking a cell phone apart, one would find a few individual parts, such as, an antenna, a liquid crystal display (LCD), a keyboard, a microphone, a speaker, and a battery. Inside the phone there is a circuit board which is otherwise called the heart of the system. First you would enter in room analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion chips which translate the outgoing audio signal from analog to digital and the incoming signal from digital back to analog. It can process millions of calculations per second in order to compress and decompress the voice stream. Then you would enter into the second room where the digital signal processor (DSP) is located.
Here in this room you would soon discover that the DSP is a highly customized processor designed to perform signal manipulation calculations at high speed. Next, you would enter the third room with the microprocessor. The microprocessor handles all the main functions for the keyboard and display, deals with command and control signaling with the base station (cell tower) and also coordinates the rest of the functions on the board. The read only memory (ROM) and Flash memory chips provide storage for the phone’s operating system and customization features, such as the phone directory.
The radio frequency (RF) and power section handles power management and recharging, and also deals with the hundreds of FM channel. Finally, the RF amplifiers handle signals traveling to and from the antenna.
An analog signal has a base carrier’s radio frequency signal, which is modified in some way to amplify the strength of the signal or vary the frequency to add information to the signal. An analog signal can be represented as a series signal to a signal carrier known as sine waves because carrier waves are analogous to the fluctuations of the human voice or other sound that is being transmitted. Advanced Mobile Phone System (AMPS), the first common cell phone system in the U.S., uses a range of frequencies between 824MHz and 894 MHz for analog cell phones. A Hertz (Hz) is equal to cycles per second, while a MegeHertz (MHz) is equal to one million cycles per second.
The frequencies chosen to be used in analog voice channels are 30 kHz wide, because it gives voice quality that is comparable to a wired telephone. The transmitter and receiver frequencies of each voice channel are separated by 45 MHZ, to keep them from interfering with each other. Each carrier has 395 voice channels and 21 control channels for activities of registration and paging. Each cell only uses about one-seventh of its frequencies. This helps a hexagonal cell and the six cells in the grid to all use the frequencies. Digital cell phones use the same radio technology in a different way.
For instance, digital phones change voice into binary information (1 and 0) and then compresses it where this compression allows ten digital phones to occupy the same frequency space as one analog cell phone.
Speech is sound in motion, but talking produces acoustic pressure. A telephone reproduces sound by electrical means. However, in wireless technology, a coder inside the mobile telephone converts sound to digital impulses on the transmitting side and on the receiving side it converts these impulses back to analog sounds.
A coder or vocoder is a speech analyzer and synthesizer all in one. A vocoder is found in every digital wireless telephone and is part of a larger chip set called a digital signal processor. In this process, sound gets modeled and transmitted on one end of the vocoder and on the receiving end, the speech synthesizer part, interprets the signal and produces a close match of the original.
These sounds can vary because of telephone circuit’s resistance, while electrically representing speech with a continuous (analog) electromagnetic wave; however, digital signals remain stable for the length of their travel because digital signals are a mathematical or numerical representation of sound, with each sonic nuance captured as a binary number.
On hearing sounds, your ears are responding to tiny, rapid changes in the pressure of the air. These changes are called sound waves. They can have a single frequency and constant amplitude. Hearing is a complex mixture of waves with different frequencies and amplitudes. Sound waves range from pure sine waves to complex combinations of waves. The normal human ear can perceive sound ranging in frequency from 20 to 20,000 Hz.16

How it works
1 – OUTDOOR ANTENNA
The outdoor antenna receives and transmits signal to nearby cellphone towers. Outdoor antennas can be eitherdirectional or omni-directional.
2 – CELLULAR AMPLIFIER
The amplifier (or “repeater”) boosts the signal coming to and from and going to the cell phone tower. The “gain” of the amplifier describes how strong the amplification is – you’ll see that word scattered across our product pages.
3 – INDOOR ANTENNA
The indoor antenna rebroadcasts the signal inside the building. Some kits have more than one indoor antenna to help distribute the signal.
