Ill make my comments brief, in hopes that it creates dialog abbot our future. The synergy and blending of the 2 company's from the network perspective is a complete disaster already! If you are a Sprint Network Employee and feel everything is so far, so good. You have not yet been tortured by the superior leader. Its coming.
T-mobile either has a leadership directive to force out Sprint employees, or the local markets and regions are overwhelmed by the extensive knowledge Sprint folks bring and that intimidation is causing them to try and force you out. To be fair, Sprint had layers of dead weight also and most need to be bounced.
From the brief time I have seen their processes and procedures combined with the lack of experience, rest assured you are all in for a wild ride.
How about unionizing?
I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀
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.
Next Generation 8 Port Dual Band Antenna Setup
4 port 800 MHz RRH-C4 800
Narrow beam setup
High Capacity Site with 2 Antennas & 3 RRUs (2x PCS & 1x SMR).
Second antenna is PCS only for now.
Canadian IBEZ (NO SMR)
Special Case PCS Only Setup for Canadian IBEZ

I'm not seeing any frequency info on my T-mobile phone, but the stale data issue appears fixed. When I force it to B12 the 5G info disappears immediately. I can't test on my AT&T phone ATM, it appears they are working on my home site again and all I'm getting from it right now is B12. Sent a diagnostic report from my T-mobile phone and will send one from my AT&T phone once I get an NR connection on it. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
T-Mobile and GCI Wireless entered into a domestic 5G roaming agreement like they did with LTE. This makes the T-Mobile the first carrier to offer 5G in all 50 states.
I made this thread for just that purpose.
Yeah I did this first thing too. You need to solder to the board to complete externals. The U.FL connectors are only extensions of the MiMo antenna.
This is correct.
The RPi is kind of a turd for this unless you have it boot from a USB drive.
Yes 4x MiMo at 3x aggregation pulls from 1.1-1.5 mA. Get you a thicc wall plug if you plan to pursue this more.
Yeah I am the one that figured this out on this radio. It is a simple AT command, you just need the correct syntax and the IMEI from the Askey router.
It is a great antenna. Medium gain but the ability to have a smaller footprint than 4 or 2 antenna. I get all of my MHF4 from LTEfix or another domestic supplier.
Do you just need the correct connectors, N Male>LMR400>SMA male? I know a guy(me) if you need some.
That antenna is light on the room but you would need to modify the internal connections to end in MFH4 to go from the antenna lead to the EM20. PoE is functional
I always have ideas my living is building LTE routers and consulting so if you would like to communicate let me know when is a good time for you to talk later in the week.
