   I know this is posible through MBus/FBus protocol, but I don't find the command that give this info. I wonder if somebody know if is this posible and what command can I use. Thank you!

Hello, andresfulo.

I do not know about MBus/FBus protocol, but I can advise you to
1. get drivers for your modem to operate it with AT commands;
2. use AT+CCED command - Cell environment description.

Following is the description of this command:

Cell environment description +CCED:

Description:
This command can be used by the application to retrieve the parameters of the main cell and of up to six neighbouring cells. There are two possible methods for the external application to ascertain these cell parameters:
 - on request by the application or
 - automatically by the product every 5 seconds.
Automatic mode is not supported during registration.

Syntax:
Command syntax: AT+CCED=<mode>[, <requested dump>]

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Command                                                           Possible responses
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AT+CCED=0                                                        +CCED:208,20,0002,0418,37,706,24,,,0
Note: last request was AT+CCED=0,3                    ,,,0,208,20,0006,989b,37,835,20,208,2
(main cell and neighbors 1 to 6): you                    0,0002,02a9,37,831,12,208,20,0101,79
can see MCC,MNC sequences (here                      66,34,818,13,208,20,0006,9899,39,713

                                                                         0101,03fb,36,824,10,1
                                                                         OK
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AT+CCED=0,1                                                    +CCED:208,20,0002,0418,37,706,25,,,0
Note : Only Main cell request                                ,,,0

Note: Call in progress : RXLev and                        OK
RXQual are empty, RxLevFull,

have data.

Defined values:

<mode>
0 : One shot requested

2 : Stop automatic shots

<requested dump>
1 : Main Cell :
 - if the Cell Identity is available
 - MCC, MNC, LAC, CI, BSIC, BCCH Freq (absolute), RxLev, RxLev Full, RxLev Sub, RxQual, RxQual Full, RxQual Sub, Idle
   TS
 - if the Cell Identity is not available
 - MCC, MNC, LAC,, BSIC, BCCH Freq (absolute), RxLev, RxLev Full, RxLev Sub, RxQual, RxQual Full, RxQual Sub, Idle TS

2 : Neighbour1 to Neighbour6 :
 - if the Cell Identity is available

 - if the Cell Identity is not available

Hello Sergeiko,

Thank you for the information. I'm working with a mobile phone Nokia 6210, which has a modem GSM. This modem work with standard AT commands (GSM 07.05, 07.07), but in this commands there are no any that give neighbour cell info.

There are some AT command, like MONI, MONP and CCED, that get this info, but these are specific commands for some industrials modems.

I would like to know if is posible to get drivers for my modem GSM to work with any of these commands, and where can I obtain these drivers. Other opcion is use any GSM PCMCIA card which use these comands, but I don't find any.

Thanks for advance,

Best Regards,
andresfulo

Hello, andresfulo.

Sorry, but I can only get you some ideas.

I do not know if Nokia 6210's modem support such AT commands (MONI, MONP and CCED), I work with Wavecom GSM modem, but
I would suggest you to ask this information at Nokia. You could write a request to technical specialist about such commands.


Regards.
