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.

Now if someone would just make an AlcaLu thread!  *wink, wink*   Robert

Took some more pics today of a high voltage mounted Samsung site in Indy. This site is currently marked 3G/800 complete on the Sponsor maps.     Here is the base station cabinets.

If you go to the members forum and look under the minnesota NV section, I posted a ton of pics of up close samsung equipment when they were doing the tower by my house. They built it on the ground before putting it on the tower. If you's like to, feel free to use any of those images. It's even 800mhz ready so it looks a little different.

I'll keep that in mind. Using mostly images from michigan and the in progress threads.

Pretty sure the antennas are the same. Contemplating if I should put the PCS only setups Samsung has in the Canadian IBEZ as well.

The green circled panels are legacy PCS panels. Sprint has used dozen of different legacy panels over the years. They can look like anything, really.

Thanks, that is what i thought they were. Most of the legacy panels I have seen here dont look anywhere near that good so I was not sure.

Sprint is not samsungs first us deployment. . Clearwire has lots of samsung gear deployed. .

 

*edited to refer to the fact it's the first major deployment for any of the big 4.

Hmm...Clearwire was not a major deployment? I'll be damned.

 

Well massive for Clearwire, I would agree. Massive in terms of what's been going on with the big 4... not really in my opinion but I will edit to provide additional clarity.

Clearwire doesn't count.  Everyone knows that.  Just like everyone knows mules have great senses of humor!  Get back to that hotel bar!!!

how do i get the player window  to post?

 

It will embed automatically.  However, I don't think it liked your extra code at the end to skip to a certain scene.

Where is the ACU? inside the panel??

 

The Powerwave brands I've seen have them internally in the radome. Some of the pics of the various antennas in the OP you can see the ACUs.

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      Its almost time for the next iteration of Samsung's Galaxy Phones! I'm planning on pre-ordering either the S20+ or Ultra. Current Rumors have it going on Pre-order February 11.  Let the discussion commence...

      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 😀

    • Have you seen any improvement after adjusting that power setting? I fear that more and more devices are going to run into similar issues.. Android is really focusing its efforts on power saving and background access, which has a direct impact on SCP of course. Unfortunately not only have I not changed much that would intentionally cause this behavior, there isn't much I can do about it right now. The OS is trying to make sure that rogue apps aren't wasting power, but the side effect is limited options for apps like SCP that legitimately exist to frequently run in the background.
    • Not working out very well for Mexico yet.
    • Did some more mapping between 110 and 165 yesterday. Connected to 7 new B41 sites, only one of which I was able to locate. Three sites I spotted with n41 antennas several months ago still aren't broadcasting B41 (47004, 43911, 43918). I wonder if they're waiting to upgrade them with 6449s. Also, spotted a site that looked to be recently upgraded (41956) with 6449s that wasn't yet broadcasting B41. B71 had been moved to 140190 on that site (the first 14xxxx eNB I've spotted), so it appears as though eNB splits are still occurring. Including the site on E110 and Lexington I spotted a couple days back, that brings us up to ~12 sites spotted between 110 and 165.   On another note, successfully roamed on Sprint (310-120) yesterday. For reference, my device is an unbranded Android that doesn't have access to either 311-490 or 310-120. Sprint keep site, perhaps?     Regarding upgraded oDAS nodes, maybe I totally missed something but the vast majority of them now seem to be equipped with LTE-LAA. Pulled this off a node on Edgecombe and 162 (59823).
    • One can dream, right? Any way the Department of Defense has let out an RFI (Request for Information) for a Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) of DOD spectrum in the 3100-3550MHz spectrum band. No they don't want to clear it for a future auction, they want to share it and make it available for 5G for commercial purposes. Of course the CTIA, the representative body for the major cellular operators is opposed to the idea since it will devalue whatever spectrum they just paid and will pay for in the C-band auction. Anyway, here is an interesting blurb from the article: "According to the Wall Street Journal, supporters of the Pentagon's proposal said it would be similar to FirstNet, a government program that allocated spectrum and billions of dollars for the creation of a nationwide wireless network for public-safety users. AT&T won the contract to construct the FirstNet network in 2017, and today the network covers 99% of the US population and counts 1.3 million connections." https://www.lightreading.com/security/us-military-looks-to-use-dss-for-5g-spectrum-sharing/d/d-id/764085? Now, I don't know about you but I see a major leap between sharing the spectrum with commercial entities and building a nationwide wholesale network. Could the spectrum be added to FirstNet network and shared with the military? Then the surplus bandwidth not absorbed by public safety entities shared with commercial entities? I bet the cable companies and entities like Google, Facebook and Amazon would jump at the chance to have cheap wholesale access to about 450Mhz of spectrum. I would love to see something like this happen. Stay tuned my friends, this can get interesting!
