Create a profile. The Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) uses a profile to establish a connection with the network. You can configure up to 16 profiles for each SIM card. The LTE Mini-PIM supports two SIM cards and so you can configure a total of 32 profiles, although only one profile can be active at a time.

To create a profile, you must obtain the following information from the service provider:

  • Username and password

  • Access point name (APN)

  • Authentication (Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) or Password Authentication Protocol (PAP))


  • interface-name—The LTE interface is cl-x/0/0, where x is the slot number in which the LTE Mini-PIM is installed.

  • access-point-name access-point-name—Access point name (APN). Obtain the APN from the service provider. You can specify only a single APN in a profile.

  • authentication-method—The authentication protocol that the SIM card uses to authenticate with the wireless network. Obtain the authentication information from the service provider. The authentication protocol used by the SIM card must match the protocol used by the service provider. The authentication-method can be one of the following:

    • CHAP

    • PAP

    • None

  • profile-id profile-id—Profile identification number for the profile. The default value is 1. The range of possible values is from 1 through 16.
