Cellular LTE Band and Tower Logging

#1

I’m going to be working on improving cell quality at a difficult location this summer. Have a Max BR1 mini that has done really well overall. In looking at antenna selection, I find that I’m sometimes getting LTE-A, sometimes 700, sometimes 1700 only.

Is there any way to log or graph the band that’s connected over time so I could see what percentage of the time I’m getting LTE-A, what percentage I’m only connecting on 700, etc?

While I’m at it, is there a way to log what tower I’m actually connecting to over time to see if I’m switching between two different towers which are both within line of sight to omni antenna?

Excellent idea! I would also be curious if there is ability to have a “site survey” function where you press a button and it checks all available bands, signals, and possibly even runs a speed test. Could be a HUGE help for those looking to deploy Peplink solutions.

I will throw in third request for this ability. The ability to lock in to what’s working and block what’s not would be a beautiful thing.

The report is available in the IC2 --> Organization --> group —> Device Level —> Cellular Reports

The same reports have been renamed to Wan Quality Reports.

Suggest you check out this thread I started a few years back: Extreme range BR1

No reason you couldn’t point one antenna at one cell site and the other antenna at another. Just need to use the right combiner/splitter and you could use multiple antennas
