Private APN

APN (Access Point Name) is the name given to the gateway within a Mobile Network Operator (MNO) that provides the ability for a device containing a SIM card to access an IP network such as the internet.  The vast majority of SIMs available on the market will access the internet via the MNO’s public APN.

For some customers and solutions, a Public APN isn’t appropriate because it would break the solution, add additional complexity or add additional cost.  Our Private APN was developed to help this type of customer. It is compatible with our EE M2M UK and EE M2M UK/EU/US SIMs.
