Configure APN

Now that your SIM card is provisioned and activated in the Aeris network, you must configure your device's Access Point Name (APN) to access data services. The APN is a reference to an IP address of the Aeris gateway (GGSN/P-GW) to which your IoT device will connect for data services. DNS is used to resolve the APN to the IP address of the Aeris gateway.
