Configuring the Access Point Name (APN) setting for your carrier

SalesEng
posted this on January 16, 2013, 16:50

APN's are used by GSM and/or 4G LTE cellular data networks in establishing packet data connections. The APN determines how the carrier's network passes IP traffic to the destination network (i.e. what IP addresses are assigned to the console server, what security methods are used etc). 

You will be provided information by your wireless carrier for configuring the GSM connection e.g.
- APN (Access Point Name)
- Pin Code (optional PIN code which may be required to unlock the SIM card)
- Phone Number (the sequence to dial to establish the connection, defaults to *99***1#)
- Username/ Password (optional)
- Dial string (optional AT commands) 



To configure:

  • Select Internal Cellular Modem panel on the System: Dial menu

  • Check Enable for Dial-Out Settings -OOB

  • Enter the carrier’s APN etc. Generally will only need to enter your provider’s APN and leave the other fields blank e.g.
    • for Verizon (4G LTE ONLY - USA): APN=vzwinternet, Username: [blank], Password: [blank]
    • for AT&T (USA): APN= i2gold, Username: [blank] , Password: [blank]
    • for T-Mobile (USA): APN= epc.tmobile.com, Username: [blank] , Password: [blank]
    • for InterNode (Aust): APN= internode Username: [blank] , Password: [blank]
    • for Telstra (Aust): APN= telstra.internet Username: [blank] , Password: [blank]
    • for Rogers (Canada): APN= internet.com, Username=wapuser1, Password=wap
  • If private or other M2M custom APN service has been configured through your carrier, the default APN will then be replaced.
  • If the SIM Card is configured with a PIN Code, you will be required to unlock the Card by entering the PIN Code.
    Note: If the PIN Code is entered incorrectly three times, then the PUK Code will be required to unlock the Card. 

  • You may also wish to nominate a specific DNS, rather than use the one provided by your carrier (which will be autoconfigured when the PPP link is established). To do this, check Override returned DNS Servers in the Override DNSfield and enter the IP of your nominated DNS servers

  • Check Apply and a radio connection will be established with your cellular carrier
