I’ve been tasked by management at my company with outfitting about 1,000 pieces of construction equipment with asset trackers. I have an IT background but am new to the IOT world and had a question.
I have done some tests with Hologram sims in 3G devices with great success and I’m ready to move on to the full deployment. However I am now switching to 4G/LTE Cat m1 devices.
My question is, when I swtich over to LTE Cat m1, are there any new settings I have to congfigure, or will the sims automatically hop on the LTE Cat m1 network? As in, can I just take my Hologram sims out of my current, 3G devices and pop them in the new LTE Cat m1 devices? I am based in California, United States, if that makes a difference. The devices will mostly be deployed all across the United States.
If it helps, these are the 3G trackers I’m currently using: http://www.iconcox.com/products/at3-ultra-long-standby-asset-gps-tracker.html
And these are the LTE Cat m1 trackers I’m switching to: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Waterproof-IP65-4G-LTE-Cat-M1-GPS-Tracker-TK319-L-for-Vehicle-GEO-fence-Alarm-Overspeed/32963802454.html?spm=2114.search018.104.22.168e855da58SSvq6&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_4_10065_10130_10068_10890_10547_319_10546_317_10548_10545_10696_453_10084_454_10083_10618_10307_537_536_10902_10059_10884_10887_321_322_10103,searchweb201603_51,ppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=38c6ccc3-de49-4242-afe8-348c36c34eca-0&algo_pvid=38c6ccc3-de49-4242-afe8-348c36c34eca&transAbTest=ae803_3
