Using AT+CSQ and AT^SMONI for signal strength on EHS5 and EHS6 | Thales IoT Developer Community

June 5, 2014 - 8:18pm, 5362 views

Inside of EHS6 Release Notes (pg 7 of 20), there is a noted problem that AT+CSQ is to be used only to gather signal strength on 2G networks and AT^SMONI is to be used on 3G networks. (1) Does this apply to both the EHS6 and EHS5? (2) Where are Release Notes for EHS5? (3) Is it possible to use 1 command to gather signal strength or does my application have to manage 2 commands and 2 values? (4) How can I detect what network the module is using (2G or 3G) so I can report the correct signal strength to my backend system? Thank you
