How to setup an international cellular gateway with a SIM card



Configuring the cellular gateway (CGW) for any SIM is simple. Send an SMS to the SIM being used in the open CGW. Below are the instructions on how to accomplish this for the European market.

  1. Customer checks with the selected mobile operator (SIM provider) to know the APN name for the GPRS network (usually: ApnName, userName, password).

  2. Insert the new SIM in the Monnit CGW. Keep the CGW power off during this process.

  3. From any mobile phone send and SMS text to the assigned SIM number using the following syntax:
    apn_config ApnName,User,Password,
    (don’t forget the last comma, and only one space after apn_config)

    Here is an example:
    Vodafone GPRS Configurations -
       ApnName : internet.vodafone.net
       User Name : internet
       Password: internet
       Send SMS text as follows: apn_config          
               internet.vodafone.net,internet,internet,

    In case there is no user name or password, replace with "null" as follows: apn_config internet.vodafone.net,null,null,

  4. Power on the CGW (note: first time the CGW takes a bit longer to connect to the GPRS)
