Quectel EP06-A AT commands for carrier aggregation bandlock?

Post by giant22000 » Sun Nov 24, 2019 10:21 pm

Anybody know the AT commands to bandlock certain bands for carrier aggregation? Thanks.

Trying to lock bands 2,4,12,29,30

You may find what you need from HERE to get you started.

I have little to no experience with the Quectel line of modems, although I will need to figure them out since we will be stocking them on the store.

Jim, a quectel tutorial like the one you have for the MC7455 would be great. I’m really interested in setting this up but I there aren’t any thorough guides like the ones you’ve done for Sierra cards. CAT 20 vs CAT 6 is a big leap I’d love to take!

Hello,
Was looking thru the info on the link in this chat.
Showing the AT commands for the Quectel EP06-A AT commands for bandlock.
I have the Quectel EC25-AF.
Does anyone know if the AT commands are the same on it as the Quectel EP06-A?

Enter the following AT commands, and write down your original band values before changing anything.

AT+QNWINFO < Current band in use
AT+QCFG=”Band” < Current bands config
AT+CSQ < Check signal strength


To configure single LTE bands or combinations, use the following AT Commands:

Band# - AT Command
2
AT+QCFG="band",0,2,1
4
AT+QCFG="band",0,8,1
5
AT+QCFG="band",0,10,1
2+4
AT+QCFG="band",0,a,1
2+4+5
AT+QCFG="band",0,1a,1
12
AT+QCFG="band",0,800,1
2+4+12
AT+QCFG="band",0,80a,1
2+4+5+12
AT+QCFG="band",0,81a,1
2+12
AT+QCFG="band",0,802,1
4+12
AT+QCFG="band",0,808,1
5+12
AT+QCFG="band",0,810,1

All bands:
AT+QCFG="band",0,42000000003300185a,1

All bands for the EP06-E specifically:
AT+QCFG="band",8d0,1a1880800d5,0

Or use the default value you have written down earlier for your particular modem.
On some modems you have to use this command format:
AT+QCFG="band",2e0,<band_value>,0

Band_value - Band#
1 - LTE BC1
2 - LTE BC2
4 - LTE BC3
8 - LTE BC4
10 - LTE BC5
20 - LTE BC6
40 - LTE BC7
80 - LTE BC8
100 - LTE BC9
200 - LTE BC10
400 - LTE BC11
800 - LTE BC12
1000 - LTE BC13
2000 - LTE BC14
10000 - LTE BC17
20000 - LTE BC18
40000 - LTE BC19
80000 - LTE BC20
100000 - LTE BC21
1000000 - LTE BC25
2000000 - LTE BC26
8000000 - LTE BC28
100000000 - LTE BC33
200000000 - LTE BC34
400000000 - LTE BC35
800000000 - LTE BC36
1000000000 - LTE BC37
2000000000 - LTE BC38
4000000000 - LTE BC39
8000000000 - LTE BC40
10000000000 - LTE BC41
20000000000 - LTE BC42
40000000000 - LTE BC43
20000000000000000 - LTE BC66
400000000000000000 - LTE BC71

For specific band combinations, simply add the hex values together using a hex calculator.
For example: Band 2 (2) + Band 12 (800), therefore the summ in (x) = 802
Or use a band calculator posted in the forum.
These changes take affect without requiring a reset or reboot.
You will have to wait about 5-10 seconds for the switch to occur.


Here are some more useful commands:

Modem Status
AT+qnetdevstatus
AT+QNETDEVSTATUS
AT+QCAINFO < CA Info


Change scan mode
AT+QCFG="nwscanmode",0,1 < Scan all modes
AT+QCFG="nwscanmode",1,1 < GSM only
AT+QCFG="nwscanmode",2,1 < WCDMA only
AT+QCFG="nwscanmode",3,1 < 4G-LTE only


Set Connection Modes
AT+QCFG="usbnet",0 - QMI/PPP/Default
AT+QCFG="usbnet",1 - ECM
AT+QCFG="usbnet",2 - MBIM


Factory reset
AT&F
AT&F1
AT+CFUN=1

AT+CFUN=0 - Turn off modem

Where you able to achieve carrier aggregation iwht teh EC25-AF?

No the EC25-AF doesn't support carrier aggregation. It performed very well on one band in my opinion. It even worked with my Verizon Sim card from my phone. And it has never worked in anything but worked on this thing. If you want 2 band Carrier aggregation go with the EP06-A.

Caution should always be exercised when changing the composition of a modem.

Note that people have reported losing their Modem WAN port for AT Commands on the EM12-G and EM20-G when using the command:

Code: Select all

AT+QCFG="usbnet",0

That should read:

What would be the hex code for bands 14, 30, & 66 or for 4, 14, 30 & 66?

I am have a hard time finding the value for band 30

right now I am returning:
+QCFG: "band",0x260,0x2000000003300185a,0x0

Currently it default connects to band 2 and 15

If it ever connect to 30 or 66 my speeds go from 10down to 60down

Thank you,
Josh
