Botletics and SIM7000A


#1

Botletics says he is shipping a Hologram SIM with each product; Does it work with AT&T? Does it work with Verizon (yes I know they (Verizon) are playing games)
Thanks


#2

Based on our agreements and testing it works on both Cat-M1 networks.


#3

Could you share the connection strings? After watching your SIM800 + MO presentation I ordered both but you state that the SIM7000 should work, it doesn’t.


#4

Botletics provides a number of examples you can use which all work on our network. What city are you located in?


#5

Malta, Idaho. I have the ATT Starter Kit talking to M2X but the SIMCOM SIM7000A MINI PCIE+PCIE to USB Adapter NBIOT LTE CAT-M1 https://goo.gl/MJc5JP can see the ‘operators’ but does not attach.
I’m waiting on a Botletics unit, SIM7000A-V to work with Verizon.

Your Modem is in a weird state and I believe the easiest way out would be to power cycle.

I have a Botletics unit at my home workshop and can verify this specific script tonight. I’d also recommend you make an issue under the Botletics GitHub repo. I feel the script is not giving the network adequate time to connect (Cat-M1 takes longer) and/or it is not keeping the modem in a proper state for retry.

This command got me connected :slight_smile:
AT+CGDCONT=1,“IP”,“hologram”,“0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0”,0,0,0,0

6 weeks of begging for why I couldn’t get connected
