I has a AT&T iot Starter Kit(2nd Gen). I installed python2.7 (version2.7.11) to board. I wanted to read the signal strength of SK2. But it always reported 0. Follow are my python code and report log data. 

import iot_mal

mal_sys = iot_mal.system()
mal_wwan = iot_mal.wwan()
mal_network =

wwan_radio_mode = mal_wwan.get_network_radio_mode()
wwan_band_info = mal_wwan.get_band_info()
wwan_serving_system_status = mal_wwan.get_serving_system_status()
wwan_radio_info = mal_wwan.get_radio_info()
wwan_lte_ca_info = mal_wwan.get_lte_ca_info()
network_connection_status = mal_network.get_connection_status()

Report log data

wwan_network_mode: {u'errno': 0, u'errmsg': u'', u'radio_mode': 4}
wwan_band_info: {u'errno': 0, u'band_info': [{u'radio_if': u'LTE', u'channel': 5110, u'band': u'E-UTRA Operating Band 12'}], u'errmsg': u''}

Thank you.

The Pyton solution for the SK2 was implemented by AT&T and unfortunately, I have no idea about its implementation.  They do have a user guide at that may help.
