Incorrect Location Area Code or modem false indication? | Thales IoT Developer Community

February 18, 2022 - 3:12pm, 760 views

Good day,
I am asking the registration status of a modem device (Cinterion ELS61) with the commands CREG and CGREG. Both answers say that the device is registered to the network but surprisingly even if the cell identifier is the same for both cases, the location area code it is not! So my question is:
how is it possible that the same cell has 2 location areas?
Here below is the log of the interrogations and answers from device.
Thanks for the attention.

AT+CREG?

+CREG:2,1,“2732”,“006E321F”,7

OK

AT+CeREG?

AT+CeREG?

+CEREG:2,1,“2EFA”,“006E321F”,7
