Cellular Charts

The cellular activity charts present cellular module telemetry data such as the bandwidth utilization of cellular modules on a site and a device. Select a site, one or more devices, and one or more cellular modules to view the cellular charts.
You can also filter by Carriers, APN profiles and Circuits. WAN and Paths are not applicable to the Cellular charts. You can view the data by the available time frames options—1H, 1D, 1W, 1M, and 3M. The data refreshes every 5 minutes, click the

icon to view the latest data at any given time. Export the data by clicking the

icon.

Signal Strength Quality

The Signal Strength Quality presents time series data for the quality of the signal strength in terms of Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor, and Dead Zone. Sort the data by Average, Best (max), or Worst (min).

Signal Stats

The Signal Stats chart displays various signal related statistics, the drop-down shows signal stats to choose from. Sort the data by Average, Best (max), or Worst (min).
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR)—Signal-to-Noise Ratio levels reported by the module (units: dB)
  • Radio Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI)—Radio Signal Strength Indicator levels reported by the module (units: dBm)
  • Reference Signals Received Power (RSRP)—Reference Signals Received Power levels reported by the module (units: dBm)
  • Reference Signals Received Quality (RSRQ)—Reference Signals Received Quality levels reported by the module (units: dB)
  • Reference Signals Code Power (RSCP)—Reference Signals Code Power levels reported by the module (units: dBm)
    The RSCP values shows the 3G signal data.

Traffic Volume

The Traffic Volume chart presents the traffic volume in KB on the selected cellular module. The volume of downloaded and uploaded data is exported to the controller every minute. View the data by Ingress, Egress, Ingress and Egress, or Summary.

Technologies

The Technologies chart presents the time series data for the cellular technology (3G/LTE/5G) used at any given time and correlates with signal strength time series data. View the data by Worst or Best.

Bandwidth Usage

The Bandwidth Usage chart presents the time series data on bandwidth utilized in Kbps on a Cellular module. The cellular interface throughput is exported to the controller every minute. Use this chart to identify congestion in a network. View the data by Ingress, Egress, Ingress and Egress, or Summary.

Packet Drops

The Packet Drops shows the number of packet dropped on the cellular module. Correlate packet dropped with bandwidth usage to understand the issue. View the data by Ingress, Egress, Ingress and Egress, or Summary.

Packet Errors

The Packet Errors chart shows the packet-related errors on the cellular module. Correlate packet errors with traffic volume and bandwidth usage. View the data by Ingress, Egress, Ingress and Egress, or Summary.

Packet Overflows

The Packet Overflows chart shows the packet overflows on the cellular module. The chart helps to analyze bandwidth issues. View the data by Ingress, Egress, Ingress and Egress, or Summary.

GPS Location(s)

The GPS location chart shows the GPS location history of the selected cellular module. If there is only GPS location indicating the device is static, the chart displays the map of the GPS location. If there are multiple GPS locations indicating the device is moving, the chart shows the time and GPS location history with an option to view the location on the map.

Cellular Tower Switches

The Cellular Tower Switch presents the time series data for the number of cellular switches by the selected cellular module. If the ION device is mobile or if the device is closer to more than one cellular tower, tower switches are likely to happen and indicated in the chart. Use this chart to correlate with the signal strength time series data.
