I am looking for a way to provide a hotspot in an agricultural setting fr an IOT device.  
Is there a set of criterion listed somewhere that can help me understand if the Aeris sim card is compatible with a device that I am considering?

Hi Patrick, 
Thank-you for using the support community. Can you clarify how you would use the NEO SIM with this device. It appears that this Huawei Power (hot spot) already has a data card. 
Kind regards,

Let me back up...
I am looking for a USB style hotpot that will be powered over the USB connector after setup that will use the Aeris card.  If you know of one I will review it.  

More broadly what I need is a any 2g/3g/4g/ wifi hot spot that uses the Aeris sim that is NOT battery powered.  It does not need to be USB... I want to control when I power it up/down to transfer data and put it to sleep to maximize battery life. 

If you can point me to a partner or a solution to look at, I would appreciate it.

Patrick

Hi Patrick,

The Huawei USB modem will work. Any modem or radio will work which support TMO US band. 
Let me know if that answers your question. 

Kind regards,
