Alpha Wireless Concealed Antenna Node
The following consists of Alpha Wireless Concealed Antenna Node (CAN) small cell sites.
This is a type of stealth setup for small cells where the small cell enodeB and relay antenna is located within the stealth enclosure which also acts as the antenna. This type of site is under beta trials with positive results and is likely to expand in deployment scope nationally to fulfill municipality requests for "good looking" small cells that they would approve.
The finished build.
Note the utilities attached to the pole and routed directly into the concealed antenna node where the small cell eNB and Relay backhaul antenna are located. In traditional small cell deployments, like such they are mounted on the exterior with visible wires.
The following is an additional example of an Alpha Wireless CAN setup. Notice the CAN's position relative to the utility pole which is at an angle.
Here is another one that is a standalone metal pole install.

Yes they are hot swap capable. No need to call Sprint, in fact they wouldn't know what to do with it.
Check out the build your own section, I post a few there. I have about 4 of them set up right now and have about 20 of em out in the wild I have sold.
I believe the Sammy engineering screen cannot display 256QAM properly. Ive been super clean signal and really fast speeds that would dictate perfect conditions for 256QAM and speeds even reflect that, but it still displays nothing ( "NONE" in the field) engineering screen.
If I turn roaming on, am I at risk of hitting the domestic roaming limit here in the DC area? This isn’t something I wanted to pay attention to or risk having service frozen/cancelled over. I have all the Auto Update over cellular functions on my device enabled.
Can anyone clarify what order QAM (both for downlink and uplink) the iPhone 8, 8+ and X support?
Also, I believe the iPhone does not support UL CA, but was wondering if someone could clarify that for me as well?
