Read Mobile Cells Around Me

Hey There,
I am using a Cellular IoT and try to find all or some of the mobile cells around me.
I need the cell id (cid) local area code (lac) as well as their mcc(Mobile County Code) and mnc(Mobile Network Code).
I can already use AT+CREG? and AT+COPS=? for the acutually cells.
Is it possible to find more cells, or switch the acutually cell connection for another request?

I’d like to hear from you,

Hi @f.funke,

Returns the
Second string : the Mobile Country Code (MCC) and the Mobile Network Code (MNC).

three modem commands: AT+CGREG?, AT+QCSQ and AT+QNWINFO
Please see Quectel’s BG96 manual for full details,
For example the response of these AT commands be:



“EDGE”,“23410”,“GSM 900”,121

two key values can be extracted from the second value in the third string: the Mobile Country Code (MCC) and the Mobile Network Code (MNC). In this example we have 23410, which yields the MCC 234 (the UK) and the MCC 10 (O2).
The third (“544D”) and fourth (“8786”) values from the top line are both hex values and give, respectively, the cell Location Area Code and the Cell ID (CID).

These commands indicate the network information it is connected to. AT+COPS=? Should return the cell information around you.
