We purchased a limited quantity of GT branded AirMaster 4000D CPE's. We purchased the CPE (only) and added a PoE power adapter injector, cable gland and pole/mask mounting clamps and studs. The product and accessories are listed as refurbished, although many (if not all) of the CPE's appear to be new (a few may have minor scratches).
NOTE: A Cat6A (or better) Ethernet cable (not included) must be used to connect the 4000D to the PoE Power Adapter Injector. While a Cat5e Ethernet cable will power the router portion of the 4000D, it provides insufficient voltage to power the 4000D's internal modem–which will prevent it from connecting to the internet. Cat5e may be used to connect the PoE Power Adapter to a WiFi router or PC.
The CPE is configured for Sprint Band 41 and is basically a plug and play unit. It will accept an active SIM card from third party Sprint provider hotspot plans using the APN's of r.ispsn or n.ispsn. Phone SIM cards or plans using an APN of x.ispsn were not tested–although the web user interface has a tab for manually entering an APN.
Customers should confirm that they have access to an actual Sprint tower that transmits Band 41 (registering as “home”)–as opposed to a tower from another carrier that is allowing Sprint to “roam” on their network. The CPE is not compatible with Sprint Bands 25 or 26.
This all-in-one unit is a CAT4 router contained in 13dBi MIMO cross polarity directional antenna enclosure. Users report average downloads between 15mbps and 60mbps–depending on signal strength and quality–with minimal disconnects.
The 4000D has full routing capabilities, but does not have WiFi. It may be easily connected via an Ethernet cable to a WiFi router of choice or to a switch and/or access point.
AirMaster 4000D is a high performance 4G LTE outdoor CPE product designed to enable quick LTE fixed data service deployment to the remote customers. It provides high data throughput and networking features to end users who need both bandwidth and quality service in the remote area.
AirMaster 4000D is fully compliant to the LTE Release 9 specification. It offers standard support for 4G features such as MIMO and AMC to maximize the system capacity and bandwidth throughput. The use of OFDM modulation enhances performance in non-line-of-sight (NLOS) conditions to ensure immunity to interference and multi-path conflicts typical of deployments in densely populated urban areas. Sophisticated QoS capabilities ensure true end-to-end QoS and support for high quality data services.
The product is designed to operate in stringent outdoor environment and meets IP67, lighting and input power surge protection requirements. To meet the different requirements of varied countries and regions, AirMaster 4000D come with different sub models to operate in different frequency bands as specified by the LTE standards. The currently supported product bands include Band 38, 40 and 41.
AirMaster 4000D has built-in router function and VPN client support to provide greater service flexibility and reliability. The standard PoE support, easy-to-read signal strength and data activity indicators in the back panel make it intuitive for users to install and check the status of the device. The signal level LED's assist in properly aligning the CPU in the direction of the cellular tower.
AirMaster 4000D is a cost effective outdoor data CPE based on the standard implementation of LTE release 9 specifications. It is able to meet the most demanding requirements from large service providers with high throughput and availability. With high gain directional patch antenna, AirMaster 4000D enables a longer reception range from the cellular tower. This yields more efficient use of the network with a larger cell reach, guaranteed carrier class service, and customer service probability.
The device has one PoE enabled data port and a simple software firewall for security, providing an effective all-in-one solution to remote enterprise or home networking needs. Factors such as integrated design, low power consumption, high antenna gain and improved heat dissipation designs further improve the operational life span of this device.
EASY USAGE AND MANAGEMENT:
AirMaster 4000D is a user-friendly LTE CPE, and very easy to install and maintain. Easy and simple installation for non-professional user delivers instant broadband anywhere. Subscribers can just connect the device to their computer or home switch/router and the device is ready to offer an experience of surfing over Internet. The LEDs on the AirMaster 4000D have also been designed for user convenience, and offer a clear sign of what the device is doing. The compact design is well suited for enterprise and residential home use in the outdoor environment. The IP addresses can be statically allocated or dynamically obtained via DHCP.
AirMaster 4000D offers rich management features which facilitate the task of service provider. It supports local management access, Telnet, WEB, and centralized remote OTA configuration, upgrades management and device monitoring via standard TR-069 ACS systems.
The Web User Interface has two levels of password protected login management, one for the general user and the other for admin privileges.
SIM CARD INSTALLATION:
It is highly recommended that the SIM Card be secured (i.e., glued, taped….) into the SIM Card Adapter when one is being used. This will avoid the SIM Card coming out of the adapter and falling into the CPE–which will require removing the eight enclosure screws and separating the CPE cases.
The SIM Card should be installed with the metal contacts facing out as shown below.
