What Is an APN?

APN stands for Access Point Name.

An APN functions as the entry point between a cellular network and another computer network, such as a private corporate network.

To establish a data connection with a network operator, a mobile device must be configured with an APN. The network operator may use the APN to determine the type of data connection that should be created, for example, the APN may be used to define what security methods to use for the connection.

The Connectivity Management APN is wholly owned and managed by us and it is deployed on each network we partner with.

This allows seamless use of any SIM that Connectivity Management provides on any partner network.
