EM7565 B48 capability?

I want to confirm that my EM7565 module has B48 capability. The wireshark trace when I latch on to a cell at e.g. band 3, does not show B48 in the UE capability list. I am unable to latch on to a B48 cell. How can I confirm that I have the correct HW / Fiirmware for B48 operation?

Please check by at!band?

I have a test AP radiating in B48 and the module does not see it in at+cops=? scan. It sees operator networks.

then that means it can work on B48.

@colin.seltzer

So the PTS states B48 is supported so it will be. You need to make sure that you have a ‘recent’ unit (so less than 12 months old) to make sure it is enabled by default. As it is part of CBRS and when the device was launched FCC had not formalised the bands we had to completely disable it in the flash and you need a one click updater to enable them.

Once enabled then the unit should just see it as a.n.other network.

If you need this then please go to your support channel (distributor/FAE).
