GSM/GPRS Modules for Network Monitoring Tool
We are trying to develop a mobile tool for monitoring and measuring the GSM network
Can someone specify any good GSM/GPS scanner modules that provides maximum features
for the application I have in mind. (a comprehensive AT command set for extracting
information from the air interface, layer 1-3 message dumping etc.).
Thanks in advance.
Can you please be more specific? Particularly, what type of information are you looking for, which programming language etc. There are a few Opens Source tools but I'm not sure they're up to professional standards yet.
What I need is a GSM/GPRS modem, which has a set of comprehensive AT commands to probe/query and output information regarding the network.
For e.g. the AT#MONI command in a Telit GSM/GPRS modem outputs all the ARFCNs, their signal strengths, bit error rates etc. in the cell in which it is operating.
What I want is a modem that can do more than that. It should be able to provide more information about the network plus importantly dump all the layer 1 - 3 messages being exchanged between the modem and the base station. The Telit modem does not do this.
Our idea is to have a ARM processor to send the AT commands to the modem and then process the returned values. So language is not a problem since we will be running an OS in the ARM.
Thanks in advance.
OK, so basically you're looking for hardware, not software. I'll check some of the references I have and see which manufcature has such a device.
Thanks Dan. It would be great if you can help me out.
