History

#1 Updated by copslock about 2 months ago

Vodafone UK is turning off its femtocell network,the Sure Signal series femtocell is almost the latest one to stop selling in just 2020/04

We’re closing down Sure Signal
We’re retiring Sure Signal from our network throughout 2021 and will switch the service off completely in September 2021. This means you won’t be able to use Sure Signal anymore, or register a device to use it.
You should keep getting the same signal strength as before, if not better, as most devices that work with Vodafone Sure Signal can use WiFi calling instead. They should work on the Vodafone networks as well, so you probably won’t notice a difference.

EE Cisco USC3331,looks similar to the AT&T microcell,possiblly the same hardware solution

#4 Updated by Jarobar about 1 month ago

Where can I find information on how to connect AL 9361 to OsmoCNI?

Has anyone been successful with this?

Not quite.
The mechanical part and the dimensions of the PCB are the same. The chip used is completely different. It's Broadcom BCM61630. The SW does not seem to contain a U-boot. Instead, there's a Broadcom bootloader. A Linux image is included.

These images prove it.

Very fuuny,I guess it might be different SKU of DPH-154,but the hardware is actually different,one thing I can pretend is that the broadcom ones come from the acquired Ubiquisys pprodutline.Besides for the German vodafone signaal plus AP2820V,which is based on the BCM6160,a detailed paper talked about the broadcomm mechanism quite well,so far so good to understand the Percello chipsets
