  1. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    [PSA] "GEN 3" Magic Boxes Incoming Will be called ASPANMBGN2 or GEN2. Really Generation 3 if one goes by chronological order of ASP540 GEN1, ASP 545 GEN2. Biggest change is exterior looks, display (LCD), and external portable battery pack like the GEN1 MB 540.
  2. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    82 / 17. Yes. If you mean the old Samsung dual mode radios then yes if they are fed the same backhaul. Mini Macros / pico cells are limited to 40 MHz (20+20) if given the backhaul.

  4. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Some do some don't. Mine didn't but I paid it off and it automatically UICC unlocked a day and a half later and works fine with my tmobile Sim now. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  5. Samsung Galaxy S8 Active Edition

    No. No. Si.
  6. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Yes or online... Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  7. It's live. Has someone visits it recently to confirm. Inside is still terrible as expected.... Need a DAS.... Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  8. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    This is the downside of a VOIP based setup like Calling Plus. In a full VoLTE setup voice packets are prioritized and the eNB will do whatever is needed to maintain voice quality / continuity.
  9. And here I'm going question marks at an area where tmobile has 4x4 B2, 4x4 B4 and 2x2 B12 all aggregated and giving me 3-5 mbps dl, 4-5 mbps UL.... Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  10. Mobilitie does small cells for everyone. Das and outdoor small cells alike. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  11. Network Vision/LTE - San Diego Market

    3 sector sites are found on mini macro on macros. You need 3 small cell units and good backhaul to support a multi sector setup which ah lte relay cannot reliably provide. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Nokia mini macro 2.5, airspan irelay 460, alpha wireless omni directional 2.5 GHz antenna. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  13. Some have permits or zoning. Other electrical stuff. We've also got unconfirmed information too that's sometimes helpful (Robert got a lot of juicy stuff recently!). Maybe PM me if you have inquiries and I can see if we know anything. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  14. Negative. Only Nokia units currently used in Samsung land are the Nokia mini macros on macros. Sprint doesn't use many of the Nokia flexi zones either. Mostly mini macros. Tbf, you probably aren't at the areas where most the sprint small cells are listed. They like deploying em in tiny clusters but since you frequent the area I'll defer to your observations.

  15. In chicago and a few other areas they often used existing infrastructure. Chicago area has quite a number of Airspan small cells deployed. Neither Verizon nor Tmobile attempted to do what Mobilitie did because they did it the standard way of mass permitting with local authorities for small cell approval. Something Sprint tried to avoid via Mobilitie and their public right of way shenanigans.
