APN with Nova modem?


#1

Is it necessary to set the APN with a Hologram supplied Nova modem?

If so, then how is that done?


#2

It comes preconfigured with the hologram apn set. Are you using it with a different company Sim? You might need to use the AT+CGDCONT command to change it.

Note that this mainly applies to the 3G Nova. The Cat-M version will pick up the correct APN by itself in most cases


#3

Are you using it with a different company Sim?

I am using the Nova Global Cellular Modem 3G/2G (U201) with the SIM as supplied by Hologram. I followed the Connectivity Guide (although was unsure if/how to set the APN) and the Hologram Raspberry Pi Getting Started instructions to set it up.

Thanks!

Got it. Those instructions should be all you need. Feel free to post if something is broken
