Gotta love UPS. I was the very last stop of the day. He got here at 9pm sharp.

FYI to everyone that gets a MB. 

 

Make sure its back (aka opposite side of the touch screen) is facing the donor cell. The relay antenna is pretty directional and performs better when aimed at the donor eNB.

Fiancees, kids, and dogs are excuses.

 

Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner.

Interesting. The exterior design is noticeably different from the 540 model. Vents moved to the bottom. Looks a bit thinner too. Still using the same pink foam for packaging lol.

There's no backlight? And not color? The screen on the 540 is very poor with regards to touch sensitivity. And it's pretty bright and always on.

No backlight and no color. It's still in the setup process. I came basically with almost no battery life so I had to plug it in which doesn't matter since I was going to do that anyway.

It's taking a while to connect. It has GPS and relay but the last step to connect to LTE is taking a long time. 8 mins and counting.

The look on Bandit's face is amazing.  It's almost as if he shares your interest in wireless.  "What did we get???"  Love it!

Takes 10-20 minutes for each setup. It downloads and installs the firmware from the ASP server every single time it's reset.

Okay. Yeah it's going to be a min. I tried two windows and while the TX power, dBm were amazing the speeds actually became slower than just connecting to the tower. I'm on window 3.

Yep. Don't expect speeds to be faster than connecting to the macro.

 

It has to receive the lte connection via the relay and then send the data connection to the airspan small cell which then broadcasts a brand new lte signal.

 

Theres a speed and ping hit due to the relay.

I see. So I may not see a speed increase but the signal will be significantly better?

Does the MB connect to the macro with only one carrier? If so, that would make the connection slower than if you have 2x or 3xCA with your phone.

300% better*...

 

 

Speed increase will be due to the new band 41 signal reaching into areas where the macro 25/26/41 signal degrades into weak and slower signals.
