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

Sprint announced at MWC trade show in Barcelona that 5G will go live with 4 cities starting in May (Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas and Kansas City )
Hi.... to see how an antenna array creates steerable high-gain beams, we start with an antenna array of a specific size, which is then divided into sub-arrays of different sizes. It is described only one dimension. The same principles do, however, apply to both vertical and horizontal dimensions.
I'm pretty sure Fujitsu equipment is actually fairly advanced. The Japanese carriers tend to use domestic suppliers for their equipment and we don't see them much outside of Japan. One reason likely is the unique bands in Japan and support for proprietary and Japanese only legacy protocols. From what I've seen and heard, the equipment is surprisingly good and solid, and is definitely competitive with the big vendors we're used to seeing. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
They check for a sprint.com cookie is all. If you delete all the cookies for sprint.com, then it'll redirect to tmobile.com. That's why incognito works, since it clears all cookies from the session when you close it and you start fresh each time. They're probably looking for a particular cookie that's set if you've ever logged in in the past. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
