Features Supported on the LTE Mini-PIM
Table 2 describes the key features supported on LTE Mini-PIM.
Table 2: Key Features Supported on LTE Mini-PIM
Automatic switchover between service providers through dual SIMs
Supports dual Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards that allow connectivity to two different ISP networks. Automatic switchover provides a failover mechanism when the current active network fails.
Multiple service provider and Access Point Name (APN) profiles
Supports up to 16 profiles configuration for each SIM. The LTE Mini-PIM supports two SIM cards, you can configure a total of 32 profiles and at a time, only single profile is active.
LTE carrier aggregation
Supports increased capacity and network efficiency. Carrier aggregation expands the LTE bandwidth by combining secondary bands.
SIM security functions
Supports security functions such as SIM lock and unlock, and PIN change.
Primary, logical and backup interface with always-on, dial-on-demand, and backup modes
On receiving traffic, the logical dl0 interface enables and places calls through the physical interface in the dialer pool. The dialer interface performs backup and dialer filter functions. You can configure the dialer interface to operate as:
Configuration modes: always-on, dial-on-demand or backup modes. You can configure the Mini-PIM in any one of the modes.
Over-the-air upgrade for modem firmware
Supports Over-the-air (OTA) firmware upgrade that enables automatic and timely upgrade of modem firmware when new firmware versions are available.
You can enable or disable the OTA upgrade on the LTE Mini-PIM. OTA upgrade is disabled by default.
