An Overview of APN’s

u

What is an APN?

An APN(Access Point Name) is a point of connectivity between a mobile network and another IP Network.

Learn More

Any mobile device making a data connection must be configured with an APN to present to the carrier. When the carrier gets the connection request it examines the identity of both the sim and the APN name to determine what type of network connection should be created, for example: 

1.Which IP addresses should be assigned to the device
2. Which security methods should be used
3. Whether it should be connected to a public or private network.

NOTE: If you are using a mobile device for internet your device is connecting with an APN and may not even be aware of this.
