XCTU DB Cellular Signal Strength

0 votes
I currently use the Digi Xbee Cellular 3G and configure it with XCTU.
This also works so far. I'm just not sure about the "DB Cellular signal Strength".
Is there a table with values from "good" to "bad"? Unfortunately I cannot interpret these values.

best regards,

From the manual https://www.digi.com/resources/documentation/digidocs/PDFs/90001541.pdf

DB (Cellular Signal Strength)
Reads the absolute value of the current signal strength to the cell tower in dB. If DB is blank, the XBee
Cellular Modem has not received a signal strength from the cellular component.
DB only updates when the modem is registered with the celllular tower. It is updated periodically, and
not when read.
Parameter range
0x71 - 0x33 (-113 dBm to -51 dBm) [read-only]

So -51 would be the best signal.
