  1. Samsung 2.5 MMU MT02P (source: Samsung) (source: FCC OET)
  2. Any and all 31/32/33 39/3A/3B endings are Nokia Mini Macros on Macros typically found on former Clearwire sites. Each mini macro is a stand alone BTS so will have unique GCI identifiers. For old Samsung GCI endings... B25 #1 = 00/01/02 B25 #2 = 03/04/05 B25 #2 10x10 = 06/07/08 B26 = 10/11/0F B41 #1 = 00/01/002 B41 #2 = 03/04/05 B41 #3 = 06/07/08 B41 #4 = 0C/0D/0E B41 Triband Antenna #2 = 09/0A/0B B41 Triband Antenna #3 = 03/04/05 Airspan Airunity MBGCI endings are all over the place but it's easy to pick out once you know the standard GCI heading. Airspan airharmony mini macros GCI ends 01.

  4. Tim YuSprint 4G Rollout UpdatesFriday, June 8, 2018 - 3:00 PM PDT It has been a little over a year since the first Magic Box publicly available was announced. In the time since then since the Airunity 545 "GEN 1" was announced, minor revisions were done as "GEN 2" with the Airunity 544 sporting a LCD display and subsequently the Airunity 546 having an more aesthetically pleasing exterior. All LCD display models are known as "GEN 2" respectively. Come next week starting on June 11th, 2018, the GEN 2 Magic Box's (AU544/546) will be considered out of stock and a GEN 3 Magic Box will take over the reigns in the beginning of July 2018. Though information on this new unit is scarce, information attained by S4GRU does suggest the new revision may potentially contain user accessible USB Type A ports and have a slightly lower transmit power. More to come as S4GRU discovers additional information about this GEN 3 Magic Box.
  5. That appears to be similar to Samsung and I assume Nokia and ALU regions when 3CA was beginning to roll out. It turned out there was still backend upgrades that needed to be done.
  6. Center frequency 1939.4 MHz so upper part of A block. The entirety of the PCS A block 1930-1945 is owned by Sprint. Shown on the interactive maps..
  7. The backhaul is connected to the SFP backhaul ports so that's fiber! (left 2 = ethernet 802.3AT, right 2 = SFP)

    Hehe! Free year BYOD time!

    Mobilitie Sites

    Relays can be used temporarily to bring up sites immediately while dedicated traditional landlines are delivered. In fact, it's one of the touted benefits of the technology. Sprint small cells don't need to wait weeks to months for backhaul to arrive like back during NV days. Also yes. That's an Airharmony 4000 B41 mini macro connected on its ethernet backhaul port to a provider of some sort. Actually now that I think of it, you're the first one to confirm with pictures an AIrspan small cell connected to what appears to be a landline backhaul. Were you able to grab any cell info from it like carriers live or EARFCN?

    It may get better over time as it self optimizes but the increase in ping is to expected as I explained previously due to the additional hop as a result of the UE relay action. I typically get 30-40 ms on the macro network and 60-70 ms on the MB and relay fed small cells. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    With regards to slower data speeds, aim the back of the unit towards the 2.5 cell site you know works well. It sounds like you've accidentally aimed it at a slower site. The UE Relay antennas are extremely directional.

    Have you read anything about it or generally about LTE UE Relay in particular? A Magic Box, and most relay fed small cells adds a hop due to the fact it has to convert the connection from an LTE donor signal into a data ethernet connection for the small cell unit as a backhaul. As a result, latency is added which is usually twice that of the donor. Not sure why you're disparaging the MB like you did when it's working as described...
  13. Sooo... found one of the first live small cell in Sacramento. Yay.
