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 😀

    • That's actually important information. If the Velvet can't get NR CA with a Sprint SIM, but can with a TMo one, that does indicate that the S21 may have something similar going on. At which point I don't think it's a matter of TMo wanting one way or the other. Rather, Sprint's core can't do NR CA because n41 was going to be the only band.
    • I agree. What differentiates the Everything Data plan from kickstart except hotspot and unthrottled data?    As for 5g I can get NSA 5g on a sprint sim (tna) but cannot get SA 5g unless I TNX and get throttled to 2.3 on video... Crazy.
    • I would say given the Everything Data plan wording and the premium price paid for Everything Data, you should have unthrottled.  If true, for me personally, this makes the purchase of any 5G phone from T-Mobile undesirable given that TNX is required to get 5G at all.  Where I live inside the Columbus Ohio beltway, the speed ranking is Sprint, then AT&T, then T-Mobile, then Verizon.  T-Mobile has improved, but not enough to change their ranking.  T-Mobile would likely win if they converted one of the two Sprint only sites near me to T-Mobile (no permits seen). The throttling should be validated against the physical network.  What happens if only band b25 is allowed so it is only on Sprint even with the TNX network?
    • Just drove by there today and SE03XC157 is back online. I guess the aforementioned wind storm temporarily knocked it offline.
    • Fast appears to be 20% slower than other speed tests... I have a 250 up and down fiber connect at home.. regularly at 270.   Just did a fast test twice... barely hit 200
