EHS5: Question about AT^SMONI response | Thales IoT Developer Community

December 15, 2015 - 5:13pm, 2762 views

Could I get some more information about the responses from AT^SMONI when connected("camping") a 2G cell with an EHS5; specifically, the 'GPRS state'?

There is no description of this in the documentation except an example which gives a value of 'G':

ME is camping on a GSM (2G) cell:
- - -
Syntax:
^SMONI: ACT,ARFCN,BCCH,MCC,MNC,LAC,cell,C1,C2,NCC,BCC,GPRS,ARFCN,TS,timAdv,dBm,Q,ChMod
Example:
^SMONI: 2G,71,-61,262,02,0143,83BA,33,33,3,6,G,NOCONN

When I use the command locally, I get a response of 'E'.

On the BGS2, there is a command "AT^SMONG" which also gives you the GPRS status:

BCCH G PBCCH PAT MCC MNC NOM TA RAC # Cell #
0637 1  -    4   234 05  2   00 0B
G  GPRS status:
  0 GPRS not available in currently used cell
  1 GPRS available in currently used cell
  2 GPRS attached

This is obviously not the same output. Is there any further information on what these 'E','G', or other values mean?

Thank You
