T-Mobile 4G LTE CellSpot¶
Any information that is and will be posted here is based on reverse engineering or using publicly available information, without private support from T-Mobile or Nokia. Use at your own risk.
The T-Mobile/Nokia branded version has been labled as the 4G LTE CellSpot V2 with the model "SS2FII Femtocell Multi-band SOHO". The Nokia-only branded version (pictured by the FCC) has been labeled with the model name "SOHO Small Cell V2 B2/B4". See the Nokia quick guide. According to Nokia, it has a IPSec with IKEv2 and a tamper alarm, so it is better not to disassemble the device to avoid triggering those. Using the LAN and WAN ports, it can be daisy-chained.
The device does not seem to support GSM, only UMTS and LTE. According to pictures of the internals by the FCC, the SoC is a Qualcomm FSM9955. This SoC incorporates a DSP by Qualcomm from the Hexagon series, see here for more detailed information. There is a Linux kernel for the FSM99xx series released, made with Yocto. According to the generic device tree include header, the FSM9900 series seems to be based on the 2012-era ARMv7 Qualcomm Krait cores. According to a Reddit post the FSM9955 also uses a Krait core, but I don't have the kernel sources to confirm this. Maybe request more recent kernel sources from T-Mobile or Nokia.
