LTE signal strength range.


(Firefox OS Graveyard :: RIL, defect)

By following AOSP, LTE signal strength should contain signalStrength/rsrp/rsrq/rssnr/cqi/[timingAdvance]. (see [1])

Regarding rsrp, AOSP define the range between 44 to 140 dBm.
However, we can see partner report it's value as 100 for invalid one (see [2]), Partner might follow rsrp value via [3] to let valid range locates between 0 and 97 dbm.

This report conflict with AOSP design (see [4]), and it will make us do the wrong judgment for LTE signal strength mapping by following AOSP's algorithm.

Hi Michael:
 Could you please help check why QCT solution report 100 dbm for invalid rsrp on FxOS?
By following AOSP, 44 ~ 140 dBm are all valid value for rsrp.
The result will make us treat LTE signal is valid, and do the wrong judgment for signal mapping.

    int rsrp; /* The current Reference Signal Receive Power in dBm multipled by -1.
               * Range: 44 to 140 dBm
               * INT_MAX: 0x7FFFFFFF denotes invalid value.

Hi Shawn, is this issue with commercial ril or reference ril?  I see from your [2] above shows RIL Worker from the reference RIL.

Can you provide radio and main logs of this situation?  I think it might make things clearer.

Hi Michael:
 It's my bad to provide incorrect information before.

I used reference RIL. and RILD did set lteSignalStrength to 99 (INVALID one).

Sorry for my careless, and, thanks for your time again!!

Wrong info was provided. There is no issue regarding LTE signal strength.

"lteSignalStrength":99,  <- Invalid  (Valid Range: 0 to 63)
"lteRSRP":-32767,        <- Invalid, (Valid Range: 44 to 140 dBm)
"lteRSRQ":-32767         <- Invalid, (Valid Range: 20 to 3 dB.)
"lteRSSNR":-32767,       <- Invalid, (Valid Range: -200 to +300 (-200 = -20.0 dB, +300 = 30dB).)
"lteCQI":-32767          <- Invalid  (Valid Range: 0 to 15.)
