Configuring an LTE Connection

Configuring an LTE Connection

Log into your Nodegrid's Management Portal and then go to "Network::Connections".  

Click on the "Add" button.

Give the new connection a "Name:" and be sure to select the correct "Type:" and "Interface:" (Mobile Broadband GSM and cdc-wdm0 is the modem interface). 

Scroll down below and you will see the "Mobile Broadband Connection" section.  The only thing you need to add here is the "APN" for your cellular provider (The APN is provided by the carrier and is specific for the SIM).  Once that is entered, scroll back up and click on "Save".
