How to get your nuSIM dev-kit online?
If you’re one of the lucky ones who received a nuSIM dev-kit from my colleagues Mona Parsa and Stefan Kaliner, you’re at the right place to find out how to get this super cool dev-kit online without a plastic simcard!
STEP 1: GET YOUR STARTERKIT PROJECT
Before using the dev-kit, you’ll need a starterkit project environment.
- Sign-up for it by using this link.
- When you’re asked about where to send the simcard select the checkbox of I already have simcards
STEP 2: GET YOUR DEV-KIT ONLINE
- Go to your project
- Register the IMEI of your device
- Attach to the network by using
cdp.iot.t-mobile.nlas APN and
172.27.131.100as gateway for a ping test or to send your uplink messages
- Your uplink payload should appear in the ‘device management’ tab of your project page
- If you do not know how to attach to the network, check out the AT-commands below
AT-COMMANDS TO ATTACH TO THE NETWORK
Switch-off the radio module
Configure basic connectivity parameters
AT+NCONFIG="AUTOCONNECT","TRUE" AT+NCONFIG="CR_0354_0338_SCRAMBLING","TRUE" AT+NCONFIG="CR_0859_SI_AVOID","TRUE"
Set the APN
Set the band
Select the Operator
Telekom Germany = 26201
T-Mobile Netherlands = 20416
T-Mobile Poland = 26002
Or use the PLMN ID of any other operator within our NB-IoT roaming footprint
Switch-on the radio module
After not more than 30 seconds, your device should be attached to the network.
Now you can proceed with registering the IMEI number of the module in your starterkit-project and send your
Hello Worlduplink message!
To follow the AT-commands below, it is important that you register the IMEI as UDP.
AT-COMMANDS TO SEND YOUR UPLINK
Open local UDP-socket
Send your uplink-message (2x)
Make sure to send it twice, in order to see your message in your starterkit project.
Feel free to reach out in case of any questions!
@afzal_m very exciting topic:) I haven’t got nusim devkit, but I’m very interested in the topic. Would it work on some specific modules, if yes on which ones? And when would we expect availability?
@Sergey-Vladimirov thx for your enthusiasm!
For now only Quectel and Telit are “nuSIM - ready”. But soon more module vendors will be ready as well.
