APN: Access Point Name

APN (Access Point Name):

Due to all the developments in second and third generation of MCI's mobile network in the country, now organizations can extend the access to their internal network with employees, servers and equipment.

 

By using MCI's APN service, organizations can benefit from a secure and separate channel for data transmission in MCI's network. In this way they will be able to enhance and accelerate the access to applications, equipment and internal servers of organization by using APN's specific sim cards without being connected to the internet.

 

Types of APN:

  • Sim to Sim: in this service, sim cards will be able to transfer the data via MCI's data network and by using static IPs.

  • Sim to Server: in this service, the connection between sim cards and internal servers of organization will be provided without the need of being connected to the internet and by using static or dynamic IPs, across the country.

 

 

Benefits:

  • Providing the required security of exchanging data between organization's internal servers and equipment without being connected to internet.

  • Expanding the internal network of organization across the country via MCI's data network coverage.

  • Providing static IP for organization's private network: in general, each sim card will be connected to MCI's data network via a dynamic IP assigned to it. In some cases, our b2b customers require static IPs in their private network and MCI can provide them with these IPs in its offered APN service.
