GPRS Multi slots TX-RX setting | Thales IoT Developer Community

October 31, 2016 - 1:30pm, 4118 views


In BGS5 Hardware description manual, Table 14 Power Supply Ratings, current consumption values are changing according to the TX/RX configuration for the case GPRS Data transfer. In table, there are options like 1Tx/4Rx, 2Tx/3Rx, 4Tx/1Rx. The more TX number, the more current consumption.

I think, these values are gsm time slot configurations. There is an at command that sets slot class configuration. It is at^sgconf. Using this command, I can change the class as 10, 8 etc. BGS5 supports 8,9,10,11,12. By setting the multislot class number, the maximum number of Tx, Rx and Tx+Rx can be changed but exact selection like 1Tx/4Rx cannot be done.

Can we make this setting in some way, at command or other? Our purpose is to decrease power consumption by setting minimum Tx, for example 1Tx/4Rx.

Best Regards,
