Note the Antennas are much thicker and fatter than the antennas being utilized by Sprint Network Vision.

May be subject to change as TD-LTE sites start being integrated into the Network Vision setups.
I'll clean the post up this weekend when I have more time.

The equipment and antennas as posted are unique to Sprint Corporations nationwide 8T8R TDD-LTE deployment and there should absolutely be no mistaking these equipment for anyone elses. This specific setup uses a Samsung 8 Transmit 8 Receive (8T8R) Remote Radio Head (RRH) and a compatible 8T8R 2496-2690 mhz antenna.

Special Case "Tri-Band Antenna" Setup
Deployed for engineering reasons these sites do not deploy a dedicated 8T8R antenna for 2.5 but instead opts for a three frequency antenna that supports 800 MHz + 1900 MHz and 2500 MHz. Due to size constraints for the antennas they limit the 8T8R RRUs to 4T4R (4 Jumpers from radios to antennas) with the subsequent decrease of maximum capacity (60 MHz vs 120 MHz of 8T8R).
Perfectly said! Couldn't of put it more eloquently! Entner is an just an investment analyst... not a network engineer. Like our buddy (Craig Moffet) at the other investment firm who constantly thinks he knows what is what with Sprint and T Mobile and is constantly putting out mis-information time and time again. 🙄 (Huge rolling eyes!).... LOL. Philly is a sort a test market for T-Mo re-configuring and deploying Sprint's spectrum, from what I understand. It's not "temporary deployment".... I think T-Mo is totally going through it and and setting it up as a core New T Mobile region. Just my thoughts. I think we'll know more in a week or two.
