Managed mobile APN: More control over your business connectivity – TechCentral

Have you ever thought about how your mobile device connects to the Internet? As a consumer, you may not be too interested. However, as a business managing hundreds or thousands of mobile Sims at the same time, you might want to know the answer.
The technology is called “APN”. APN stands for access point name — the gateway that connects the mobile network to the Internet. It shows the identity of your mobile carrier, so the device knows which network to connect to.
Consumer devices will, by default, connect to the Internet via a public gateway. These are designed to provide reliable Internet access for normal use. But some business connectivity requirements, such as Internet-of-things devices and deployed company devices need more control over where data is routed and how much of it can be consumed.
For such requirements companies typically look at a private APN. Since it does not use the open Internet, a private network can be more secure and allow all users to consume data from a central shared data pool.
Traditional private APNs are provided by mobile networks but have specific limitations that include limited customisation, fixed-term data pool commitments, no real-time Sim quota management and are typically limited to a single mobile network. Because of this, many businesses are using a managed private APN to better control their mobile data connectivity. This “APN-as-a-service” offering gives companies the flexibility and tools to take control of their mobile connectivity.
There are many reasons why your company may adopt a managed APN in 2022. Let’s have a look at the top five:
