Q: Any idea on a timeframe on when we might be able to see things like loading/RF slot utilization/BLUR/etc from the BOSS?
A: We expect access to the BOSS server should happen in the next few weeks once Jesse gets back. Perhaps a month at most.
Q: I have an eNB in the field that has a bad surge arrestor. Can you test the DL bandwidth on the eNBs by bypassing the Ethernet surge arrestor?
A: If your surge arrestor is not up to par, we suggest skipping the Ethernet surge arrestor and connect directly to PCB ethernet port. New surge arrestors were sent to the Baicells Madison office, so if you're having an issue with your surge arrestor please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an exchange as we work to fix this issue. If you do not want to exchange it, we suggest you bypass the Ethernet surge arrestor.
Q: I'm trying to set up a UE without the benefit of having an eNB anywhere near the office. Is it normal for the LTE Status to say "USIM not ready" in the UE GUI, or do I have the SIM inserted incorrectly?
A: It is likely your SIM card is not inserted correctly. When inserting with the antenna facing down, the 45 degree edge goes in on right side.
