How to configure and save a "User Profile" using AT-commands on selected Telit modems.
Sometimes you might want to store some settings to be automatically loaded on startup, without having to configure your modem or make a script.
Fortunately Telit has made it easy to do this, by creating a "User Profile", and this FAQ will guide you through on how to set this up.
For this example, we'll make some configurations to the GPS settings of the module, but you can choose whichever settings you like.
First, send the AT command:
You will get a long list with info, but the one I want you to check is the last one:
DEFAULT PROFILE : &Y0=user profile 1
Make note of the "Y0" - This might be different on your setup, but don't worry, we'll change this in the next step.
Send the following AT command:
This sets the modem to a custom user profile. (There are 2 user profiles available, "0" and "1". We are using "0" here.)
Now check that we have updated the profile with the AT command:
And now it should say at the bottom:
DEFAULT PROFILE : &P0=user profile 1
Great! Now we're editing our user profile, so go ahead and type your settings:
AT$GPSP=1 AT$GPSANTPORT=3 AT$GPSACP AT$GPSNMUN=1 AT$GPSNMUN=1,1,1,1,1,1,1 AT$GPSSAV
To save these settings, it's not enough to only type "AT$GPSSAV", we need to save some of the settings to our profile!
Type the following AT command to do a "save profile":
Now do a reboot with:
And when it's up and running again type:
And it should say:
More info regarding the different modes and settings can be found in the AT Command Guide here.
How can the Telit FN980 be used to survey 5G networks?
The Telit FN980 is equipped with a function called Easy Scan. This function can be utilized by issuing the following AT command:
The new Qualcomm baseline (LE 1.4) also introduces the possibility of performing 5G SA network surveys with this command. The 5G feature is available starting from firmware version B009.
To perform a 5G SA network survey, utilize the following procedure:
Use AT#5GCTL=2 or 3 (SA only, SA for FR2 is not supported currently.)
Reboot the module
Use AT+WS46=38(Default) or 36 or 37 or 40, but just to be strict, you can set this value to 36 (NG-RAN only).
Optionally, use AT#BND can select specific RF bands.
Currently, the firmware versions that are using the new Qualcomm baseline are still under certification, making them unsuitable for finished products. However, there are beta firmware versions that can be used to test this feature for development purposes.
Please create a technical support ticket if you are interested in testing 5G network surveys on the Telit FN980. You can create a technical support ticket by clicking the following link: https://techship.com/support/new/
Which antenna ports should I connect antennas to on the LTE or 5G module?
It is important to understand the functionality of the different antenna ports on the cellular module when deciding which ports to use. There is a risk of underutilizing the module by not connecting antennas to the right ports. This guide aims to explain some general terms and abbreviations used to label and describe antenna ports and their different functionalities.
Some antenna port labels that are commonly used on cellular modules are listed below:
MAIN – Primary transmit and receive antenna port. Required for basic functionality.
DIV – Diversity receive port. This port is used to receive the same signal as the primary port, but at a different spatial point. By receiving the same signal at two different spatial points, the module can mitigate destructive effects that might be present on one of the different spatial points. The diversity receive functionality is especially useful in urban environments where the interference environments may be radically different between two spatial points. It is always recommended to use the diversity receive port as this functionality improves the quality and reliability of the overall link.
GNSS – GNSS receive port. GNSS stands for Global Navigation Satellite System, examples of such systems are GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and BeiDou. The available systems may differ between different modules. To see what systems are available for a specific module, please consult the modules hardware documentation. As this antenna port is used for positioning applications, a suitable GNSS antenna needs to be connected to this port in order to utilize this functionality.
MIMO – MIMO port. MIMO stands for Multiple Input Multiple Output and refers to the amount of antennas used at each side of the link. For example, 4x4 DL MIMO means that the base station and the module each use 4 antennas for the modules downlink. Usually, the MIMO label is used to denote antenna ports that are used for spatial multiplexing which is a technique used for increasing the bitrate. This is achieved by splitting the signal into different streams that are transmitted and received on spatially separated antennas on each side of the link. For the majority of cellular modules, spatial multiplexing is only available for the module's downlink.
AUX – Auxiliary antenna port. The available functions on this port may differ between modules. Examples of functionalities that can be present on this port are diversity receive, DL-MIMO and GNSS. Please consult the module's hardware documentation to see which functionalities are present on this port.
Some cellular modules have numeric, non-descriptive labels on their antenna ports. These modules can have different functionalities for different frequency intervals/bands, on one single antenna port. For these modules, consult the hardware documentation to find what functionalities are present for which frequency intervals/bands one the different antenna ports. Please note that antenna ports with transmit functionality for certain frequency bands need to have a antenna connected in order to utilize these frequency bands.

How do we connect to a 5G NR network?
To be able to connect to a 5G network both the module and SIM card need to have 5G technology support. If you have problems with NSA or SA for a specific band make sure that your module actually supports this as well. Read through your product’s hardware guide which can be found on the product’s page.
Support for 5G NSA/SA on a specific band can also be firmware dependent. Make sure that you have the latest firmware installed on your module.
This FAQ includes many different AT commands, both 3GPP standard and vendor specific commands, so it’s recommended to have your module’s AT guide with you while troubleshooting.
Perform a network scan with AT+COPS=? and check if your module can find any 5G networks. You can see if it’s a 5G network by looking at the last value in the quadruple. Depending on which technology you use this should be set to:
11 - NR_5GCN (NR connected to a 5G core Network)
12 - NGRAN (NG-RAN access technology)
13 - EUTRA_NR (Dual connectivity of LTE with NR)
If your module can find the 5G network, check your current network configuration with the read command AT+COPS? to make sure it’s set to the correct value. Similarly you can check the NR5G network registration status with the following AT command sequence (note this command only applies for 5G SA) :
You can select the Wireless Data Service with AT+WS46:
36 - NG-RAN only
37 - NG-RAN and E-UTRAN
38 - NG-RAN, E-UTRAN and UTRAN
40 - NG-RAN and UTRAN
Telit 5G related AT commands:
Enable your 5G band with AT#BND
To enable/disable only the 5G bands AT#5GCTL can be used
FN980 does not have SA enabled by default. To enable it run the following commands:
AT#BND=(Fill in you bands here, see AT guide)
If you are using a Windows PC change the USBCFG to option 2
SIMCom 5G related AT commands:
Enable both SA and NSA with AT+CSYSSEL=”nr5g_disable”,0
Disable SA with AT+CSYSSEL="nr5g_disable",1
Disable NSA with AT+CSYSSEL=”nr5g_disable”,2
Configure 5G NSA bands with AT+CSYSSEL=”nsa_nr5g_band”
Configure 5G SA bands with AT+CSYSSEL=”nr5g_band”
Set your preferred mode with AT+CNMP
55 - WCDMA+LTE+NR5G
71 - NR5G
109 - LTE+NR5G
Sierra Wireless 5G related AT commands:
Display your 5GNR information with AT!NRINFO?
Enable/disable ENDC (NSA) and SA with AT!RTCA (note that these settings are not persistent across power cycles)
AT!GSTATUS not responding with NR5G fields and looks similar to:
NR5G RSRP (dBm): --- NR5G RSRQ (dB): ---
NR5G SINR (dB): —
The response details are dependent on the network providing the necessary information to the modem. To be sure you get these values the modem has to be in a data call in SA mode
Fibocom 5G related AT commands:
Select RAT with AT+GTRAT or RAT and Bands with AT+GTACT
14 - NR-RAN
16 - NR-RAN/WCDMA
17 - NR-RAN/LTE
20 - NR-RAN/WCDMA/LT
