I have an aeris M2M and need to determine the APN for the 3G WP8548. Note it is 3G-only module and using the mangOH.io for cellular wireless.

root@swi-mdm9x15:~# cm data
Index:      1
APN:        mms
PDP Type:   IPV4V6
Connected:  no

Here is the mango red example from the users guide:

Set the APN, replacing “<your apn>” with the actual APN (for example “cm data apn internet.com” for a Rogers Wireless SIM):
# cm data apn <your apn>

root@swi-mdm9x15:~# cm data apn internet.com

Note: If your mobile network operator uses different APNs for 3G and LTE, make sure to use the APN for the correct network based on your CF3 module type. For example, the WP8548 is a 3G only module that does not support LTE—the APN for the net work operator’s 3G network should be used.

root@swi-mdm9x15:~# cm sim info
Type:       EXTERNAL_SLOT_1
ICCID:      8901....
Home Network Operator: AT&T
IMSI:       31017....

root@swi-mdm9x15:~# cm radio
Current Network Operator: AT&T
RAT:        UMTS network (LE_MRC_RAT_UMTS)
Status:     Registered, home network (LE_MRC_REG_HOME)
Signal:     Good signal strength (3)

Knowing the AT&T is the carrier and 3G only, the only options for the SIM is GSM neo.iot.net and LTE iot.aer.net.

Spoke to aeris and they said since it is AT&T then use iot.aer.net.
