Quick question that I seem to have answered but was looking for confirmation. I have a CAT M1 Nova-M (R410) that I am using to provide a gateway to a Beaglebone.
Periodically during my application I will need to detect the signal strength for the dongle - I am using the subprocess library to run “hologram modem signal” and “hologram modem operator” and I was running into issues where the device would return “ERROR: Unable to detect a usable serial port”.
I was able to overcome this in testing by disconnecting the device (“hologram network disconnect”), running the commands, and then reconnecting (“hologram network connect”).
Can someone verify that querying the signal strength and operator while a ppp connection is established is whats causing the issue?
Also what is the level of risk in disconnecting, running my queries, and then reconnecting repetitively? I am assuming that the “hologram network connect” and disconnect commands are just establishing the ppp connection to the modem and that the device is constantly connected to the actual cellular network the entire time - can you verify this statement as well?
Appreciate the help!
