I’m currently using an RM500Q with Three UK proving internet service.
The mast I connect to has LTE bands B1+B3+B32. Of those bands, B3 performs best as primary, however the RM500Q will steer towards B1 - this is despite the LTE band priority being set to 3:32:1
[admin@MikroTik] > /interface lte at-chat lte1 input="at+qnwcfg=\"lte_band _priority\"" output: +QNWCFG: "lte_band_priority",3:32:1
Not a huge issue, so I’ll try and set the EARFCN lock.
[admin@MikroTik] > /interface lte at-chat lte1 input="at+qnwcfg=\"lte_earf cn_lock\",1,1392"
Sets the EARFCN lock to B3 - however it doesn’t aggregate anything else.
So, instead I set a 4G Band lock
[admin@MikroTik] > /interface lte at-chat lte1 input="at+qnwlock=\"common/ 4g\",1,1392,82"
Which locks to B3 as primary carrier and PCI - not what I want as I don’t want a cell lock, just EARFCN.
This brings me on to the second issue, my carrier Three sleeps B32 at night time and enables it again in the morning. However, the RM500Q fails to reconnect and aggregate B32 again in the morning. This is frustrating as most of my bandwidth is provided by B32.
My question is 2 parts:
- How do I lock to EARFCN 1392 whilst still allowing aggregation
- How do I ensure the module searches and aggregates B32 when it is enabled again in the morning.
Thanks in advance!
