Boron LTE CAT M1 is showing LTE as RAT via firmware calls

As the title says, our firmware call of RSSI.getAccessTechnology() is returning a 6 which corresponds to NET_ACCESS_TECHNOLOGY_LTE

I would expect instead an 8 for NET_ACCESS_TECHNOLOGY_LTE_CAT_M1 unless I am mistaken?

Device is being tested in OK, USA.

Thanks in advance.

What version of Device OS are you using? The release notes for 1.5.1 include this:

[Electron / Boron] Make sure that SARA R4-based LTE devices report LTE Cat M1 access technology #2083

Hi picsil, thanks kindly for the reply. I’m using 1.5.0 so it sounds like it’s as simple as that!

We’re trying to diagnose some poor reception on our board and wanted to ensure this wasn’t a part of the problem, sounds like it’s not.
