Has Any one seen any of these Yet in the wild, or permits for the Locations these are going?

NSN’s TDD-LTE Radio solution features its Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station using high capacity baseband platform and high bandwidth TDD LTE 8-pipe radio. This will allow Sprint to provide industry leading speed and performance to its subscribers. The project commenced with Services Planning in late 2013, and hardware is expected to start shipping in July of 2014. The network is scheduled to be on air in the third quarter of 2014.

 

The contract announcement was made at Sprint’s facility in Burlingame, California, on the same day that NSN demonstrated its ability to provide download speeds of 1.3 Gbps. This speed could provide unprecedented service for subscribers, allowing them to download a typical two hour movie in eight seconds or a 45 minute TV show in about one second. The demo used the same radio hardware as will be used for the network implementation.

Thanks, I must of missed that Date. I would assume that Permits would start to show up in the wild in the next month or so? In order to have a speedier rollout.

Permits should be already being applied. Contractors / Sprint just won't pick them up (i.e. Issued) until they are ready to begin the deployment.

Has anyone seen the Andrew/Commscope 8T8R antennas that they plan to deploy at the NSN sites? I can't find anything on those new 2.5GHz antennas.

Every single application in a Samsung or alcatel-lucent market that I've came across uses a KMW Communications antenna. There is one image of a slightly different antenna model that I've yet to confirm who it belongs to.

No but the enclosures for all their flexi units are the same as seen in that picture.

They could put it pole mounted like we're all used to or clustered together like T-mobile..

Checked the FCC and noticed that the actual model used by Sprint is VBNFZHE-02 which was certified on the 31st of October instead of the VBNFZHE-01 model certified in august. 

 

Fun fact: The relationship between Sprint and Nokia and Softbanks influence was in full effect since at least Q1 of 2013. Nobody noticed it but Nokia Solutions & Networks actually certified an 8T8R B41 RRH on April 12,2013 FCC ID VBNFZHA-01.

If I'm in St. Louis tomorrow I'm definitely looking to see if anything can be spotted at permitted sites.

I checked a site in KC that was permitted for full NV and 2.5 at the same time, they took down the legacy gear and put up NV antennas last week, but no Nokia yet. I'll check again next weekend.
