    13,000 Students need a LTE EBS network

    You'll need to reach out and negotiate an agreement with a LTE eNodeB provider (aforementioned -- Samsung, Ericsson, Nokia, Airspan, etc) in order to create a LTE EPC, acquire licensed radio transmitters, and a deployment plan. Coverage is far superior to 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz due to significantly higher TX power, antennas, modulation, and just difference in elevation on the transmitters. Still you'll likely need a wide deployment using multiple backhauled eNodeB sectors at least for capacity and coverage reasons. https://www.airspan.com/education/ https://networks.nokia.com/solutions/private-lte TBH reaching out to Sprint may be still your best option since they have the expertise and they're pretty much the biggest entity a lot of these vendors have agreements with.
  2. Iirc aren't like most of Fresno towers 15-20' wooden poles with all ground mounted radios? I'd think that would be the bigger issue plus any restrictions on much needed small cell infill coverage deployments.

    It's the ball antenna ATT / VZW ball uses for their COWs. @belusnecropolis linked it.

    Sprint Backup Power

    It's 4-8 batteries in the BBU. 4 if OG NV config with 1.9 + 800 and +4 with 2.5 deployed. IIRC it's mostly rated for 8 hours when I was looking at NV documents a while back.

    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I would pop a nice email to magicbox[at]sprint[dot]com to inquire about your area.

    Network Vision/LTE - San Diego Market

    Usually it goes from the outermost points of the former IBEZ to the innermost areas nearest to the border. So you'll see it pop up all around LA / Irvine / OC and then spread towards SD as time goes on.
  7. Yep! Enjoy that 15+10 B25 network
  8. Need to find specification for Adapter and Cable for Sprint Magic Box (Airspan AU545)-thanks


  9. December / January time frame for many devices is what was going around last I heard.
  10. Tim YuSprint 4G Rollout UpdatesFriday, December 14, 2018 - 11:00 PM PDT Beginning today on the Sprint subreddit, individuals can begin submitting questions in this thread that will be forwarded to Ms. Schnellbacher to answer at his leisure in a few days time. Who is Mr. Jason Schnellbacher you may ask? So go forth and submit all your questions about Sprint Magic Box's, small cells, and other Sprint related stuff!
  11. On another note, does anyone have engineering or app proof of the 15x15 B25 carrier?

    The S4GRU BYOD Sim Compatibility Chart

    Nice catch! I'll fix that now.
  13. Found 3 more Sprint Airspan small cells (Florin/Freeport, downtown, & loaves and fishes area) and the first noted Clearwire 2.5 conversion to Sprint triband 800/1.9/2.5 in Elk Grove!
