Networking rutxxx manual network mobile information 4g v2.png
Field NameDescription
Data connection stateIndicates whether the device has an active mobile data connection
IMEIThe IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is a unique 15 decimal digit number used to identify cellular modules. GSM network operators use the IMEI to identify devices in their networks
IMSIThe IMSI (international mobile subscriber identity) is a unique 15 decimal digit (or less) number used to identify the user of a cellular network
ICCIDSIM card’s ICCID is a unique serial number used to identify the SIM chip
SIM card stateThe current SIM card state. Possible values are:
Ready – SIM card is inserted and ready to be usedInserted – SIM card is insertedNot inserted – SIM card is not insertedUnknown – unable to obtain SIM card state value. Possible communication issue between the the device and the modem
Signal strengthReceived signal strength indicator (RSSI) measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate a better signal strength
Cell IDThe ID of the cell that the modem is currently connected to
Signal level measurementsOverall signal quality is defined by different measurements for different connection types. Short explanations and recommendations are provided below. Click here for more in-depth information or click on one of the links below:4GRSRP – reference signal received power, measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate better signal strengthRSRQ – reference signal received quality, measured in dB. Values closer to 0 indicate a better rate of information transferSINR – signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio, measured in dB. Higher values indicate a better rate of information transfer3GEC/IO – downlink carrier-to-interference ratio. Values range from -20 to 0 (closer to 0 indicates better signal quality/cleanliness)RSCP – received signal code power. Values range from -124 to 0 (closer to 0 indicates better signal stength)2GRSSI – received signal strength indicator, measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate better signal strength
