AT&T Specific Requirements

  1. Contact NexSens to obtain the cellular modem IMEI number.
  2. Contact AT&T and request a new account. Ask for these (4) general account requirements:
  • Unrestricted Access
  • Static Public IP Address
  • Mobile-Terminated

A SIM card must be installed in the cellular modem for AT&T accounts. SIM cards can be sent to the user, a local AT&T retailer, or directly to NexSens (preferred method). Typically NexSens handles SIM card installations.

3. Contact NexSens to confirm the account is activated and send SIM card for final installation.

NOTE: All cellular iSIC data loggers should be activated, configured, and tested by NexSens to ensure quick startup in the field. After following the appropriate steps outlined above, keep in contact with NexSens about account updates, issues, and concerns in order to guarantee prompt shipment.

For modems not provisioned by NexSens, the correct modem template must be written, and the SIM card must be user installed. Follow the instructions at the links below:
