ELS61 Slow network registration | Thales IoT Developer Community

September 27, 2018 - 5:46pm, 1031 views

Hello,

When I power on the ELS61 (various versions, Rel1 or Rel2), the time between URC ^SYSSTART and registration to the network (+CREG:1 resp 5) is about 25-30 seconds (tried with different operators).

Same procedure with EHS6 or TC63i needs only between 8 and 15 seconds (depending on operator)

As our application is battery powered and I have to shutdown the module after each transmission and restart again for next transmission this delay costs a lot of energy.

Does someone has experience with this or a hint how to accelerate the registration process?

(Network coverage for 2G, 3G and 4G) is OK

Thanks and best regards

Klaus
