  1. Verizon is / was deploying the Ericsson 5GTF backend systems which is their proprietary 5G pre NR standards setup. The M-mimo equipment on cell towers / light poles are dual mode 5GTF and NR capable. So it's fairly simple for them to just "flip the switch" (simple terms). They had built a completely new standalone system for 5GTF that doesn't really interact with their extensive LTE EPC hence why they can go full stack NR rather than mixed which most carriers will be going with.

  2. Typically Antenna size restrictions. I've seen a few of them in socal where they used a 4' midband and a 4' lowband to satisfy regulations. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  3. Only Sprint uses these type of All in one mini macros. You'll predominately find standalone mini macro on macro setups as part of Clearwire site replacements since it's a cheap drop in replacement.
  4. Unfortunately They are currently actively building out a spectrum protection network to meet build it requirements.......... Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  5. Buy it at the price they wanted. The whole calculus has changed since 2018 when Softbank has shown its hand on how desperate they want to offload Sprint. There's many sharks swimming around the bleeding body that is Sprint ready to snap at the right moment which would be post merger failure and devaluation of the Sprint stock pricing and credit rating.

  6. Got the PM. Responded with a one request but I''ll be forwarding yours and another individuals S/N and status to the relevant folks to troubleshoot in a bit.
  7. There is no time frame. They're making progress and having it being field tested though. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah just wait some time. Once they scan the airave back in, the systems will remove it from your account. I think it took a few weeks for my returned Gen 2 MBs to be removed from my account. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  9. What you need to do is ask for a RMA kit and they'll send you a Prepaid UPS Label. Toss the unactivated A4/A3 into a box with the prepaid label and they can figure it out at the warehouse when they scan / input the SN into the system. I had the same shenanigans with one of my G3 MBs too and advanced OKC tech support (3194 number) had to resort to deactivating one of the G2s I had and using that active line to activate the new G3.

  10. It should be fixed already as it's a major issue that they only were alerted to this morning thanks to my message. I'd recommend resetting / power cycling the unit and waiting at least til tomorrow. If it is still inoperable then PM me with the Serial Number + MAC ID and other relevant info and I can CC you into the chain with the engineer(s). Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  11. The issue you and I had (red led on LTE) was a software configuration bug on Sprints side that has been diagnosed and fixed. My A4 was flashing red LTE with everything else solid green since evening of Saturday. Now its all solid green with 1x + LTE actively transmitting. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  12. It's considered a macro site FWIW. Looks like heavy site design restrictions for that area! Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  13. That is correct. Those are 3 mini macros feeding old clearwire sector antennas with the old Clearwire cabinet. Inside the clear cabinet it's pretty much just power and a cisco router / switch.

  15. GPS cable is rolled up approximately 30' long. The slot is on the right of the unit facing forward which is quite an awkward spot since you have this cable just coming out from the side. Much prefer it on the back. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
