Market for old WiMax hardware?

Recommended Posts

If one wanted to get his hands on retired WiMax hardware, how would that be accomplished? My particular interest would be a couple of or a few sector antennas, not the radios themselves.

Probably one of the outfits that will be hired for decomissioning sometime later this year or next year.

 

Las Vegas and Portland area would be the major ones to look at since those Motorola markets will be 100% ripped out and replaced unlike the Huawei and Samsung markets which will predominately stay for a long time (Samsung) or for some time (Huawei one by one until they're all gone).

Didn't know there were any Samsung WiMAX markets.  I thought all Samsung WiMAX hardware was deployed as LTE from day one, just keeping WiMAX as a secondary function.

Also, about a third of all WiMax Substantial Service Sites (Protection Sites) are Samsung.

Is there a list which shows OEM per market?

We don't have one but we have spotting guides for the equipment that easily distinguishes Huawei and Samsung.

Have you tried Restoration WiMAX Hardware?  There are Yuppie stores in most major markets.

Souvenirs of a bygone era, garage wall adornment perhaps? Or some sort of crazy armchair engineering experiments...

I work at a company called AirWay Technologies. We've been buying and selling Cell Site & Switching equipment for 20+ years. If you have specific part numbers I can run them through our database and let you know if we or any of our channel partners has any availability.

    • All I know... Having this S-20 Ultra, and utilizing Tmo improved coverage in Utah (and its TONS better from like 3 yrs ago when I tried for a yr)... I cant wait to see what the combined assets will do..  Hell volte will be about as good as the standard cell coverage... I have been hitting all the bands (except the N-bands. I think) SCP bounces all over..2, 12, 66, 71  I have had to add new notes as they are Tmo towers instead of Sprint hahahha
    • Ooo that sucks. Is it a regular T-Mobile plan, or their home internet plan? I didn't think they checked the IMEI for normal lines? Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • True vzw has been deploying B48 equipment for some time on their towers, so that will be a quick turn on Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/operators/verizon-to-stop-certain-ad-claims-5g-coverage In other news, the duopoly is sparing with each other over speeds/coverage and seems to be feeling the heat put on by New T-Mobile. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/operators/verizon-s-cbrs-3-5-ghz-deployments-rise-rootmetrics New T-Mobile seems really aggressive with the rollout and I am sure the executives realize that any advantage they have on VZW will surely dissipate. VZW is almost ready to rollout their own mid band spectrum and we know AT&T is not sitting idle either. Factor in the Note 20 and iPhone 12 launches, New T-Mobile really needs to keep up the pace to keep churn down! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
