So I have a tower that I've been keeping my eye on. It is a "Legacy" Marked tower, and it shows on the Maps as such. Looking at the tower, it looks legacy. Old panels still up on the tower. Now At work, I have a new NV Tower (New Panels, RRU's, etc.) and I connect to it on 3G SID: 4159 NID: 305. I go to this tower (Legacy Looking), sit right under it with a -58 signal and have the same SID: 4159 NID: 305. Now here's my big question. Could this possibly be either: A. GMO Site (According to a previous article, the Orlando Market didn't have any) B. Full Build with RRU's on the Ground (Cannot tell because of where the cabinets are cannot see them) C. Still Legacy (We are in an incumbent Market so could they be the same NID? Or does this only apply to eCSFB?) Or...Am I totally off in thinking that the SID/NID are different with Legacy/NV Equip? Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!

Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment. Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

I've noticed some sites in Tucson are being set up with 2 RRUs per sector, while others are receiving only one RRU per sector. Was it ever determined if current Alca-lu RRUs can run CDMA+LTE? Are they possibly skipping LTE deployment on otherwise full-build sites?
