Belkin insider program


Recommended Posts

I wanted to ask if anyone else had tried to get into the Belkin insider program? It's a testing program for Belkin devices where they send you things to try...as payment for your time and trial, you get to keep the stuff they send. I got word I was accepted, but I can't say anything about what I receive unless it's on the market for sale already...which isn't likely to happen (why test already for sale items?)

I had to sign a stipulated NDA that is pretty binding on me not saying much about items not yet public.

There is no signing up. They put out word a while back and took, I'm guessing around 50 people, then said that they received all they wanted to fill...so it's actually too late now to try and get into it. Took two surveys for them and apparently answered in a manner that they were looking for, but they only tried for about two days to find people. I just happened to see their request a couple minutes after they asked about it and I answered. They came back and said something about a lot of response but they had filled the quota, apparently this is a new program with Belkin because they called it a first-time thing, I do believe.

I wonder if Belkin utilizes the Centercode Connect portals like many other companies do? Adobe, Dell, Cisco, Logitech, Google, etc. It appears it does based on Centercode's client list. hehe


Centercode... http://www.centercode.com/


Centercode's OnlineBeta portal, for all programs not specifically managed by a large corporation...



Cisco/Linksys beta portal.. https://beta.linksys.com/



I've done some testing for Cisco, Palm, Logitech, and some other smaller companies through opportunities sent from Centercode directly looking for new testers.

I was selected to be an insider but have not received any word after submitting the form which they resent to me asking for the date. Did you receive any news on when or how we will be able to select products for us to review?

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
