Since the the Sierra Wireless GX440 for AT&T LTE was just released, I’ve been making some inquiries to ensure that our projects involving this device proceed very smoothly. Two bits of info that I would like to share:
- A special SIM for AT&T LTE will be required to run on the AT&T LTE network the SIM that we used for 2G/3G deployments will not work.
- At this time AT&T’s LTE Network does not support CCS or I2Gold. What this means is that Static IPs are not yet available on the AT&T LTE network. A resolution is being worked on and I hope to have an update on this to share soon.
In service to our clients who are migrating to VZW LTE modems and network devices, our company, USAT Corp., is often tapped to perform device provisioning as part of our M2M deployment services package (DevProv+). There have been some bumps in the road on the migration to LTE, as our work flow involves tapping an appropriate Verizon Wireless sales professional to provide USAT with activated sims prior to device programming taking place. This has caused some delays, as it sometimes has taken weeks for LTE sims to arrive at USAT. The good news is that and Verizon Wireless and USAT have worked to rectify this supply chain issue, and USAT will have sims in hand in early June. This will allow for faster turnarond times on deployment services for the GX440 (1101414) and the CradlePoint IBR600LE. With the Verizon Wireless LTE sims in hand, USAT’s deployment services will once again return to our typical quick turnaround times for provisioning services.
